Betting

Forecast

Sir Dragonet (8/15), Brogue (6/1), Halimi (13/2), Numerian (15/2), Nickajack Cave (14/1), Insignia Of Rank (40/1), Satisfy (100/1)

Verdict

Last year's Derby favourite at Epsom, SIR DRAGONET won his debut on yielding to soft ground and sets a high standard if he also proves effective on today's going. Returning to 1m2f (tried once, on his penultimate start) asks another question of him but he probably has too much class for this field. The most interesting of his rivals is Dermot Weld's Juddmonte representative Brogue, whose solitary race was a very promising win last May. Numerian and Halimi look best of the rest.
  1. Sir Dragonet
  2. Brogue
  3. Numerian
