Forecasts

Love (13/8), Adayar (9/4), Lone Eagle (7/2), Mishriff (13/2), Wonderful Tonight (12/1), Broome (14/1)

Verdict

An intriguing renewal, not least as the Derby winner takes part for only the second time in the last 10 years, and it's Epsom-hero ADAYAR who gets the nod, with this year's Blue Riband boosted by the subsequent Group 1 successes of third-placed Hurricane Lane. Love is feared most if the ground stays on the quick side, but if the heavens do open Wonderful Tonight could provide the main threat.

  1. ADAYAR (IRE)

  3. WONDERFUL TONIGHT (FR)
