Verdict

KING OF STARS lasted long enough up with the pace at Ascot last month to think he's back in good nick and with stall 1 a big plus, it's easy enough to envisage him making a very bold bid. Paul Midgley saddles 3, with Ventura Express and Indian Sounds definite threats.

  1. KING OF STARS (IRE)
  2. VENTURA EXPRESS
  3. INDIAN SOUNDS (IRE)
