Forecast

Vatican City (5/4), Bolleville (10/3), Crossfirehurricane (9/2), Simsir (8/1), Gold Maze (17/2), Bowerman (10/1), Trais Fluors (18/1), Tasalka (25/1), Sky Seven (40/1), Fresnel (40/1), Choice Of Mine (80/1), Apricot Moon (100/1), He Knows No Fear (150/1), Harriet's Force (150/1), Effernock Fizz (200/1)

Verdict

VATICAN CITY is yet to fully build on his excellent third the Irish Guineas but he was back on track last time and now tackles what could well prove his optimum trip, so he's marginally preferred to Crossfirehurricane, who can resume progress back down in grade. Bowerman is another one to consider.

  1. VATICAN CITY (IRE)
  2. CROSSFIREHURRICANE (USA)
  3. BOWERMAN
