Forecasts

Battleground (9/2), Thunder Moon (11/2), Master Of The Seas (6/1), Mutasaabeq (6/1), Wembley (13/2), One Ruler (10/1), Lucky Vega (12/1), Chindit (12/1), Poetic Flare (16/1), Van Gogh (20/1), Naval Crown (50/1), Mystery Smiles (66/1), Legion Of Honour (80/1), Devilwala (100/1), Albadri (200/1)

Verdict

This looks a particularly open renewal. THUNDER MOON was behind Wembley in the Dewhurst but had been very impressive when beating him in the National Stakes prior to that and is taken to provide his trainer with a second successive British Classic win after Galileo Chrome's Leger triumph last autumn. Battleground and Godolphin-pair Master of The Seas and One Ruler are others likely to have a say.

  1. THUNDER MOON (IRE)
  2. WEMBLEY (IRE)
  3. BATTLEGROUND (USA)
