Forecast

Cockalorum (7/2), Dark Lochnagar (4/1), Lunar Jet (5/1), Kaser (7/1), Regal Mirage (7/1), Luncies (8/1), Highwaygrey (17/2), Music Seeker (17/2), Ritchie Valens (10/1), Union (12/1), Purple Knight (14/1), Benadalid (20/1), Sha La La La Lee (25/1)

Verdict

Keith Dalgleish has sent out plenty of winners in recent weeks and his DARK LOCHNAGAR gets the nod to recapture the pick of his 2019 form. Conditions look set to be in his favour, and with first-time blinkers applied, it would be disappointing if he can't go close. Highwaygrey rates the obvious danger with 3 wins from 5 starts this year, ahead of David Loughnane's wide-margin winner Kaser.

  1. DARK LOCHNAGAR (USA)
  2. HIGHWAYGREY
  3. KASER (IRE)
