Forecasts

Taipan (11/4), Erzindjan (9/2), Earlswood (11/2), Hector De Maris (8/1), Max Mayhem (8/1), Snapraeterea (17/2), Vafortino (10/1), Matchless (11/1), Flying Visit (11/1), Arturo Toscanini (12/1)

Verdict

MATCHLESS hasn't had much racing and shaped like he was in need of a longer trip when mid-field in a Guineas trial at Leopardstown last month, so he might be able to find a chunk of improvement over this distance. Erzindjan and Snapraeterea both have better form than the selection at present, so they're clear dangers.

  1. MATCHLESS (IRE)
