Forecast

Verimli (15/8), Mirann (7/2), Dalton Highway (4/1), Grandmaster Flash (6/1), Lynwood Gold (13/2), Trossachs (8/1), Latrobe (8/1), Edification (16/1), Machine Learner (22/1), King's Vow (25/1), Max Dynamite (28/1), Morga (80/1)

Verdict
It is expected that some of these types will turn up in the real Ebor in August, but TROSSACHS looks well-placed to land this valuable trial before heading to York. The four-year-old was by no means disgraced in Group company last time and with classy sort Latrobe - who will give his typical gutsy performance - condensing the weights in this, looks to have the ideal mark and could still be classy horse in time. The claim of Gavin Ryan means Dalton Highway is effectively racing off a 4lb higher mark, which could still be winnable terms if having more progression left in him, while Verimli remains severely unexposed on these shores and will have come on plenty for his recent effort.
