Forecast

Harpocrates (5/4), Justifier (6/4), Royal County Down (5/2), Vitalogy (9/2), Lougher (5/1), Rebel Tale (10/1), Cap D'antibes (33/1)

Verdict
Aidan O'Brien has won five of the last 10 renewals, including the last three, so his pair are going to be popular. Harpocrates arguably sets the standard on his best form but he's already been beaten by one of these rivals and he'll be vulnerable to some smart looking prospects. His stablemate Royal County Down is proving progressive and wouldn't need much more to improve past him. Two winning debutantes who hold big entries catch the eye with Justifer having won in effortless fashion on debut while narrow preference is for VITALOGY who did very well to quicken off a messy pace and the step up in trip rates a big plus.
  1. Vitalogy
  2. Justifier
  3. Royal County Down
