Forecasts

Camelback (7/4), Rostropovich (11/4), Berkeley Square (13/2), Raphael (7/1), Medal Of Honour (10/1), Coat Of Arms (12/1), New To Town (16/1), War Hero (20/1), Sunnyhill Lad (25/1), Spirit Of Dreams (66/1), Pak Army (66/1), Shandon (66/1)

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this race last year with War Decree and there's a good chance the winner will be amongst his trio of runners this time out. Rostropovich is the pick of the stable jockey but the draw makes things a little awkward for that runner so BERKELEY SQUARE is taken to get his head in front despite probably wanting a little further with time. Camelback made a promising debut here and should come on for that effort but he's another who has to overcome a wide berth (12).
  1. Berkeley Square
  2. Rostropovich
  3. Camelback
