Verdict

Wesley Ward again has a strong hand in this race with NAKATOMI and Lucci. The former needs to prove his effectiveness on turf, but he was well on top of a subsequent stakes winner when making a successful start at Keeneland and can take this step up in class in his stride. Instinctive Move impressed at Bath and also looks very promising, as does Cadamosto for Ballydoyle.

  1. NAKATOMI (USA)
  2. LUCCI (USA)
  3. INSTINCTIVE MOVE
