Forecasts

Bradsell (11/8), Little Big Bear (13/8), Persian Force (4/1), Blackbeard (5/1), Shartash (18/1), Apache Outlaw (80/1)

Verdict

BRADSELL is the only unbeaten runner in this Group 1 contest and Archie Watson's impressive Coventry winner can maintain his unblemished record at the chief expense of Aidan O'Brien's improving Little Big Bear who bids for a four-timer. Persian Force, Blackbeard and Shartash can fight it out for minor honours.

  1. BRADSELL
  2. LITTLE BIG BEAR (IRE)
  3. PERSIAN FORCE (IRE)
