Forecasts

Verdict

Plenty in with chances but BAGUE D'OR looks a 3-y-o firmly on the up and he's taken to notch his third victory of the year having seemingly been well suited by the step up in trip when scoring at Newmarket 3 weeks ago. Fox Vardy has presumably had his problems but he's feared most provided he's ready to roll after a year off the track, ahead of Whitehaven and Praiano.

  1. BAGUE D'OR (IRE)
  2. FOX VARDY (USA)
  3. WHITEHAVEN (FR)
