Betting

Forecast

Lucky Vega (5/2), Method (10/3), Minzaal (7/2), Supremacy (13/2), Tactical (11/1), Lipizzaner (14/1), The Lir Jet (16/1), Charterhouse (28/1)

Verdict

A fascinating race featuring some of the most exciting 2-y-os in training, but METHOD could hardly have created a more striking impact on his 2 starts and there's substance to go with style, both in the form book and on the clock. Minzaal looked a colt of serious potential when taking the Gimcrack at York, while Lucky Vega's success in the Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh is the best form on offer.

  1. METHOD (IRE)
  2. MINZAAL (IRE)
  3. LUCKY VEGA (IRE)
