Betting

Forecast

Aluqair (6/4), Graphite Storm (5/2), Sir Roderic (6/1), Bungee Jump (9/1), Ragstone View (9/1), I Am A Dreamer (11/1), Waqt (25/1)

Verdict

The two three-year-olds are of obvious interest against their elders with the weight-for-age scale still tilted in their favour. The pair I Am A Dreamer and Aluqair both hold claims but they could face pace pressure not only from each other but also from Bungee Jump who generally likes to run his races from the front. That pace scenario will favour GRAPHITE STORM who got the necessary breaks when winning at Newmarket but failed to do so last time. He remains fairly treated and it’s hard not to see him as a leading candidate. The return of a visor and the booking Oisin Murphy catch the eye when assessing the chances of Sir Roderic and this course winner is hard to ignore in race calculations.
  1. Graphite Storm
  2. Aluqair
  3. Sir Roderic
