Forecasts

Beamish (6/4), Cleveland (3/1), Gear Up (4/1), Duke De Sessa (6/1), Licence (8/1), Layfayette (8/1), Falcon Eight (22/1), Manu Et Corde (28/1), Sandhurst (33/1)

Verdict

CLEVELAND maintained his progressive profile when second at Royal Ascot and he makes obvious appeal back in Group company on his first start for Joseph O'Brien. Beamish is an obvious danger and Layfayette is likely to bounce back quickly from a lesser effort.

  1. CLEVELAND (IRE)
