Betting

Forecast

Dream Of Dreams (3/1), One Master (11/2), Art Power (7/1), Happy Power (17/2), Oxted (9/1), Starman (9/1), Sonaiyla (12/1), Glen Shiel (16/1), Lope Y Fernandez (16/1), Cape Byron (22/1), The Tin Man (25/1), Onassis (33/1), Speak In Colours (40/1), Dubai Station (66/1), Brando (80/1), Jouska (80/1), Chiefofchiefs (125/1)

Verdict

OXTED has yet to encounter ground as soft as this, but his July Cup win is just about the best form on offer, and at the forecast prices, he has to be the call. Dream of Dreams arrives in top form and these conditions will hold no fears so he's a massive threat, while Starman is the unknown quantity in the race as the ceiling of his ability has yet to be exposed given he's unbeaten.

  1. OXTED
  2. DREAM OF DREAMS (IRE)
  3. STARMAN
