Betting

Forecast

Mandarin (4/5), Past Master (4/1), Dragons Voice (5/1), Frontispiece (6/1), Done Deal (7/1), Battle Of Marathon (8/1), Unit of Assessment (8/1), Sputnik Planum (8/1), Rake's Progress (14/1), Galactic Spirit (25/1), Thaqaffa (25/1), Great Hall (25/1)

Verdict

Recent winners MANDARIN and Frontispiece make the most appeal here but with the latter winning by the narrowest of margins it is the top-weight who gets the nod with 1m4f expected to suit well based on the strong finish displayed at Windsor. The prolific Dragons Voice is always one to respect especially after back-to-back good efforts since upped to this trip.
