Forecast

Copper Knight (2/1), Caspian Prince (7/2), Poetry (4/1), Final Venture (4/1), Emblazoned (9/2), Dark Shot (10/1), Boundary Lane (14/1), Deia Glory (16/1), Little Kim (16/1), Yolo Again (25/1)

Verdict
In a race where a whole host of these are closely matched the only one with the possibility of just being too classy is John Gosden's EMBLAZONED who managed thirds in Group Two and One races last term at three. He was disappointing at Royal Ascot but down three notches on the class ladder now he is taken to bounce back. Copper Knight has been running with enormous credit considering his often welter burdens in handicaps this season and will surely make a bold bid at his favoured track. Also of interest are closely matched Caspian Prince and Poetry.
