Forecasts

Minella Indo (8/13), Milan Native (7/5), Turbojet (20/1), The Kings Baby (100/1)

Verdict

The progressive MILAN NATIVE, who landed the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival in March, is taken to topple Minella Indo in this intriguing contest. The latter sets a high standard judged on his fine second in the RSA at the Festival, but conceding weight to the race-fit Milan Native on his seasonal reappearance won't be easy. Turbojet can claim minor place money.

  1. MILAN NATIVE (IRE)
  2. MINELLA INDO (IRE)
  3. TURBOJET
