Forecasts

Sleeping Lion (3/1), Lexington Empire (9/2), Big Kitten (9/2), Rock Force (5/1), Harbour Breeze (7/1), Koeman (7/1), Ilhabela Fact (14/1), Western Duke (16/1), Landue (16/1), Wimpole Hall (20/1), North Face (20/1)

Verdict

Plenty of possibilities here with the improving Lexington Empire upped in class after easily disposing of his rivals last time and the form has been boosted since. Wimpole Hall has a lot to recommend him, whilst Rock Force may do better having been gelded. Big Kitten went close at Chelmsford and has to be respected, but preference is for the tough and consistent KOEMAN who holds Sleeping Lion on 2018 form and who will have to win this to guarantee a place for his intended target at Royal Ascot. He produced another career best on his return from a nine month break at Newmarket and does not need to come on much for the run to be hard to beat.
