Forecast

Expert Eye (7/4), James Garfield (3/1), Hey Gaman (3/1), Connect (10/1), Raid (12/1), Fighting Irish (16/1), Cold Stare (33/1), Arrogant (66/1)

Verdict

The front-running Hey Gaman isn't one to dismiss quickly but he may prove vulnerable to some potentially classy finishers in this line-up. On the face of it, this revolves around EXPERT EYE, who proved much too strong for James Garfield when they met at Goodwood in the Vintage Stakes before blowing his chance in the Dewhurst before things got serious. He can put that disappointment behind him and remains a potentially high-class performer. Raid is an interesting runner on the back of winning a Doncaster maiden on his only outing to date.
  1. Expert Eye
  2. Hey Gaman
  3. James Garfield
