Betting

Forecast

Siskin (2/1), Armory (4/1), Lope Y Fernandez (9/2), Vatican City (14/1), Sinawann (14/1), Monarch Of Egypt (14/1), Royal Lytham (14/1), Fiscal Rules (16/1), Free Solo (20/1), Fort Myers (28/1), Rebel Tale (125/1)

Verdict

Siskin is the one to beat having gone unbeaten here last year, but his experience in the Dewhurst is a worry, as is the fact that he has stamina to prove. If he stays, he ought to go well, but that's a risk at his price. MONARCH OF EGYPT, who has a similar chance on form, is a huge price after flopping in the autumn, but that is no indicator of his ability, and he might be worth chancing for a yard with no peers. Stablemates Armory and Lope Y Fernandez are others who have the class to bounce back from disappointing efforts at the end of their respective juvenile campaigns, while Michael Halford's Sinawann is progressing nicely, and can't be dismissed.
  1. Monarch Of Egypt
  2. Sinawann
  3. Armory
