Betting

Forecast

Defoe (5/2), Meteor Light (11/2), Emenem (7/1), The Statesman (7/1), Bear Valley (8/1), Appointed (10/1), Everything For You (11/1), Society Red (16/1), Temple Church (16/1), Star of Rory (20/1), Cullingworth (25/1), Teofonic (25/1)

Verdict

The suggestion here is EMENEM, who was unlucky to be beaten at Epsom last time and has shown some good progression through his short career so far. He may have to prove himself on soft ground here, if the forecast conditions come to fruition, but there should be further improvement to come and he should still be on a fair weight up only 4lb. Bear Valley ran a fine race in the King George V at Royal Ascot and should do so again here, while The Statesman could have more to offer at this trip.
