Verdict

With the exception of SERIOUS EGO, all of these have either been off the track a while or arrive out of sorts, so he's very much the percentage call following a smooth win at Haydock a month ago. Minella Charmer and Corrieben Reiver are interesting, while leading connections keep the faith with Vision du Puy and the market will reveal plenty.

  1. SERIOUS EGO (GER)
  2. MINELLA CHARMER (IRE)
  3. CORRIEBEN REIVER
