Forecast

Stradivarius (11/10), Search For A Song (7/1), Fujaira Prince (10/1), Dawn Patrol (10/1), Trueshan (11/1), Broome (12/1), Sovereign (14/1), Spanish Mission (14/1), Morando (20/1), Max Vega (50/1), Monica Sheriff (80/1), Mildenberger (125/1), Dubious Affair (150/1)

Verdict

Staying-king STRADIVARIUS is much superior on form to his rivals and it will be disappointing if he doesn’t resume winning ways returned to this longer trip after his failed attempt to land the Arc back at 12f. Irish St Leger winner Search For A Song looks the chief threat on her first start at 2m, while Broome is also not without a chance now tackling this distance for the first time.

  1. STRADIVARIUS (IRE)
  2. SEARCH FOR A SONG (IRE)
  3. BROOME (IRE)
