Betting

Forecast

Grand Inquisitor (5/6), Lexington Law (4/1), Izvestia (4/1), Mirsaale (12/1), Royal Flag (16/1)

Verdict
A very trappy little event but narrow prefernece is for MIRSAALE who would ideally prefer a little further but his class may carry him through if he can rekindle the fire. Izvestia is in form and might well improve for the step up in trip so is feared, while Grand Inquisitor holds the selection on recent form and is a big danger if proving as effective on the anticipated quicker ground. Lexington Law is a first ever runner here for Alan King so won't be have travelled north just to sample the Yorkshire air.
