Forecasts

Palace Pier (1/2), Lope Y Fernandez (11/2), Top Rank (11/1), My Oberon (14/1), Century Dream (18/1), Lady Bowthorpe (22/1), Safe Voyage (25/1), Lord Glitters (33/1), Lord Campari (50/1), Happy Power (66/1), Pogo (66/1), Bless Him (66/1)

Verdict

PALACE PIER is Timeform's current highest-rated Flat horse in training so is hard to oppose having made an impressive winning return in the bet365 Mile at Sandown 3 weeks ago. Lope Y Fernandez went close at this level a few times last season and looks set for another good campaign judged on his comeback win at Leopardstown, while My Oberon looks most progressive and is worth a shot at this level.
