Betting

Forecast

Cool Mix (4/1), Bennys King (4/1), Springtown Lake (9/2), Dashing Perk (5/1), Delire D'Estruval (5/1), Modus (13/2), Drumcliff (7/1), Espoir De Teillee (11/1), Royal Village (14/1), Last Goodbye (25/1), Mind's Eye (33/1)

Verdict

The one with the most attractive profile is BENNYS KING, who was just touched off in a competitive Ascot contest when last seen in January and, lightly-raced for his age, there could be more to come from him this season. Drumcliff's latest effort at Fontwell was his best for a while and he needs considering, along with Wetherby winner Cool Mix and Springtown Lake

  1. BENNYS KING (IRE)

  3. COOL MIX
