Verdict

TRUESHAN took this impressively 12 months ago and Alan King's 5-y-o appeals as very much the one to beat again on the back of his taking victory over Stradivarius in Longchamp's Prix du Cadran. John Gosden's legendary stayer is still much respected but William Haggas's lightly-raced Hamish is feared most on this occasion now he gets his first chance over 2m with ground conditions to suit too.

  1. TRUESHAN (FR)
  2. HAMISH
  3. STRADIVARIUS (IRE)
