Verdict

Another competitive event to close day four of the meeting but it might be worth taking a chance on the lightly raced five-year-old INDIANAPOLIS. The course and distance winner looked as if he needed the run when returning at Newmarket last week and that run should have put him spot on for this. Byron Flyer has gone well here in the past and may represent some value at likely big odds while the likes of Medal Winner, El Misk and Dubai Future have more obvious chances for some of the big yards.
  1. Indianapolis
  2. Dubai Future
  3. Byron Flyer
