Forecasts

Love (11/10), Lord North (2/1), Armory (5/2), My Oberon (17/2), Sangarius (9/1), Audarya (10/1), Desert Encounter (25/1)

Verdict

ARMORY made an impressive return when landing the Huxley Stakes at Chester and, while he has a small amount to find with Love and Lord North at the weights, he has a fitness edge over that pair, so he gets the marginal vote in what should be a fascinating renewal. Audarya isn't a forlorn hope, either.
