Forecast

Sexy Beast (5/2), Unit of Assessment (9/2), Gabrial The One (13/2), Mountain Ruler (7/1), Billy No Mates (8/1), Blue Medici (8/1), Multellie (9/1), Qawamees (12/1), Azzuri (12/1), Swift Wing (14/1), Ajman Prince (14/1), Armandihan (16/1)

Verdict

Tom Lacey saddles his first ever Flat runner with the frustrating Swift Wing returning from wind surgery having left the care of John Gosden, while Dan Skelton sends the classy, sound jumping chaser AZZURI north from what is potentially a very appealing handicap mark. Others worthy of consideration in an otherwise competitive contest include Mountain Ruler, Sexy Beast and Unit of Assessment. However, having also shown ability on the Flat in Ireland (for Richard O'Brien in 2018), it is the now hopefully clean-winded Skelton-trained chaser who receives the vote.
