Forecast

Master Singer (4/1), Atty Persse (7/1), Sofia's Rock (7/1), First Nation (8/1), Homesman (8/1), Utah (10/1), Drochaid (14/1), Good Omen (14/1), Tartini (14/1), Mister Manduro (14/1), Janszoon (16/1), Bear Valley (20/1), Bin Battuta (20/1), Never Surrender (25/1), Oasis Charm (25/1), Twin Star (25/1), Shymkent (33/1), Reachforthestars (33/1), Majoris (50/1)

Verdict

Atty Persse is a potential pattern class performer in the making but his pedigree makes him a risk over this trip in a race that will be run as strongly as this. Mark Johnston took this in 2012 and his team here is spearheaded by impressive Haydock scorer Sofia's Rock. Whether he will be able to dominate this big field in similar fashion is debatable and Mister Manduro looks a better alternative with the strong pace bringing his proven stamina into play. First Nation appeals as another who will appreciate the pace and Master Singer comes here in preference to tougher assignments. Aidan O'Brien is well represented with Ryan Moore preferring Homestead who had UTAH behind in the Gallinule Stakes. The latter looked in need of the run and is now weighted to turn the tables. A juvenile victory over The Anvil,who has campaigned at the highest level, puts him on an attractive mark as he steps up to a trip which should yield some improvement.
