Verdict

LIFETIME AMBITION sets a good standard and will be suited by this step back up in trip, so this looks an excellent opportunity for him to get off the mark unless winning-pointer Gold Cup Bailly turns out to be well-above average. Pont Aval presumably hasn't been the easiest to train, but should be capable of better judged on her bumper form. Patty D is another worth a mention.

  1. LIFETIME AMBITION (IRE)

  3. PONT AVAL (FR)
