Forecasts

Bond Street (11/8), Would You Believe (4/1), Kion (8/1), Royal Navy Warship (8/1), Castrogiovanni (10/1), Minnie Haha (12/1), Akua (12/1), Namazee (16/1), Patrick Joseph (33/1), Powersville (50/1), Way Back Home (50/1), Decked (50/1), Prep (50/1), Simmonscourt (50/1), Rockafilly (66/1), Florida's King (66/1), Courtney Crimson (100/1)

Verdict

Bond Street looks destined to shape the market here but it would be brave to take a short price on him at this juncture. His latest effort over 7f around here was a bit of a letdown. He's clearly well thought of at Ballydoyle and should have a race like this in his compass however. More interesting is the newcomer WOULD YOU BELIEVE for Ger Lyons, who is operating a 20% strike rate on his 2yos over the previous 12 months. He's bred to be quick and should have a say in this contest. Kion wasn't disgraced on debut here and should improve while Namazee and Akua are newcomer worth paying attention to.
