Verdict

It's very hard to ignore the claims of PALACE PIER who has proved he handles this sort of ground and can make it 6-6 and provide John Gosden with a third winner in the last 4 years. Last year's second The Revenant looks set to play a prominent role again after his recent reappearance win, while Circus Maximus is held by Palace Pier on Deauville form but his 2-2 track record affords him respect.

  1. PALACE PIER
  2. THE REVENANT
  3. CIRCUS MAXIMUS (IRE)
