Verdict

ALFAADHEL is a colt very much on the up and looks to have been allotted a handy opening mark, so he's put forward as the answer. King Frankel has made a bright start to life in handicaps and remains one to keep on the right side of, as does Fantastic Fox, who scored as his rider liked at Hamilton last time.

  1. ALFAADHEL (IRE)
  2. KING FRANKEL (IRE)
  3. FANTASTIC FOX
