Forecasts

Mooneista (2/1), Equilateral (7/2), Castle Star (6/1), Cadamosto (10/1), Brostaigh (10/1), Ladies Church (12/1), Geocentric (12/1), Last Crusader (16/1), New York City (16/1)

Verdict

MOONIESTA shaped as if still in good form when fourth in the King's Stand at Royal Ascot and is taken to land a second successive win in this Group 2 contest. Brostaigh is a fast-improving 3-y-o sprinter and can give Jack Davison's filly most to think about. Equilateral looks best of the remainder.

  1. MOONEISTA (IRE)

  3. EQUILATERAL
