Forecasts

Noble Truth (5/4), Hoo Ya Mal (3/1), Dubai Poet (18/5), Light Infantry (4/1), Cresta (6/1), Tacarib Bay (12/1), Red Vineyard (33/1), American Star (50/1), Regimental Gent (50/1)

Verdict

NOBLE TRUTH's form is on an upward curve and is a cut above his rivals here too so he can resume winning ways having come up just short in Group 1 company at Longchamp. Hoo Ya Mal was just edged out by Charlie Appleby's colt at Doncaster and is again rated second best. Dubai Poet appeals as the pick of the remainder for place purposes in an intriguing Group 3 juvenile contest.

  1. NOBLE TRUTH (FR)
  2. HOO YA MAL
  3. DUBAI POET
