Betting

Forecast

Armory (4/6), Iberia (4/1), Justifier (11/2), Lope Y Fernandez (13/2), Roman Turbo (9/1), Geometrical (14/1), Toronto (20/1), Jungle Cove (25/1), Rebel Tale (50/1)

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has taken five of the last six renewals of this Group 2 event and launches a four-pronged attack led by Armory, who has improved with each run, landing the Tyros Stakes in good style at Leopardstown last month by 5L from stablemate Toronto. He was though beaten earlier this term by JUSTIFIER and Ger Lyons' colt stepped up on that to land a Listed event at Tipperary since, form that has been well advertised at York this week. There's more to come and he can maintain his unbeaten record. Ballydoyle's Lope Y Fernandez will be glad to see no Pinatubo in the line-up and could improve again alongside Roman Turbo, winner of a Group 3 last time out.
