Forecasts

Zabeel Prince (5/4), Patrick Sarsfield (5/2), Ancient Spirit (4/1), Guaranteed (12/1), Fort Myers (18/1), Trais Fluors (20/1), Georgeville (33/1), Celtic High King (50/1)

Verdict

It looks a shrewd move by Roger Varian to bring ZABEEL PRINCE over for this Group Three contest. He is comfortably clear of his rivals on ratings, and won in this grade on his return to action last season so the 346-day break is of no concern. Connections are not messing about with leading Irish jockey Colin Keane booked for the ride. Trais Flours finished third in a Group One for his former stable behind the selection and has place claims on that form, while Patrick Sarsfield is on an upward curve currently so should represent himself well on this first foray into group company. Ancient Spirit is also afforded major respect given he is 2-2 since racing resumed.
  1. Zabeel Prince
