Forecast

Stratum (9/2), King's Advice (5/1), Gibbs Hill (5/1), Withhold (13/2), Time To Study (9/1), Austrian School (10/1), Proschema (11/1), Speedo Boy (11/1), Who Dares Wins (12/1), Red Galileo (12/1), Dubawi Fifty (14/1), Bartholomeu Dias (14/1), Mootasadir (20/1), Making Miracles (28/1), Cosmelli (33/1), Shabeeb (33/1), Desert Skyline (40/1), Aircraft Carrier (40/1), Cohesion (66/1), Fearsome (80/1)

Verdict
Sadly the 2018 winner Withhold is unable to defend his crown, but Tony Bloom has another strong chance with Stratum who didn't get the breaks when sent off 3/1f for last year's Ebor. The returning Gibbs Hill has been the talking horse, yet that ship has long since sailed and he represents no value at his current odds. Speedo Boy is the pick of the Ian Williams trio, while there are definite angles for Red Galileo and Bartholomeu Dias. However, the combination of a slow Tapeta surface and a truly run race could really bring the stamina of WHO DARES WINS into play. He has all of the required characteristics in his armoury to sample success.
