Forecast

Stradivarius (4/5), Cross Counter (3/1), Dee Ex Bee (11/2), Dashing Willoughby (14/1), Southern France (16/1), South Pacific (16/1), Wells Farhh Go (16/1), Harpo Marx (50/1), Raa Atoll (50/1)

Verdict

STRADIVARIUS is bidding to match the record of Double Trigger and become just the second horse to have won this race three times. While his main rival Cross Counter had excuses last time when forced wide entering the straight, Stradivarius seemingly had a bit to spare when he hit the line and he's taken to confirm the form with Charlie Appleby's star stayer. Dee Ex Bee should be able to see off the remainder but he will face competition for the lead with both Wells Farhh Go and Dashing Willoughby in the line up.
