Forecasts

Morando (11/8), Durston (3/1), Sextant (4/1), Sameem (13/2), Technician (10/1)

Verdict

The senior runner in the field, MORANDO is a confident choice and has a bit in hand on official figures on his good fourth in the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot. He won here last year on his only previous visit and ground conditions are of no concern. Sameem could be the one for the forecast given his improved display over 2f less at Hamilton last time. He shapes as though he should stay and is in peak form at present. Technician has to prove his stamina but is a fair performer and not out of it, but both Sextant and Durston need to significantly raise their respective games to score.
