Verdict

PAISLEY PARK has looked as good, if not better than ever this term, doing well to get up close home to land the Long Walk at Ascot on his latest outing, so he's an obvious choice to regain his crown. Sire du Berlais tends to save his best for the Festival, so a bold showing is expected from him, while 2020 winner Lisnagar Oscar shouldn't be ruled out.

  1. PAISLEY PARK (IRE)
