Betting

Forecast

Masaarr (11/4), Communique (7/1), Chief Ironside (7/1), Dukhan (8/1), Poet's Prince (9/1), He's Amazing (9/1), Master Of Wine (10/1), Mekong (11/1), Loyal Promise (16/1), Glencadam Master (22/1), Connect (25/1)

Verdict

MASAARR gives the impression he will appreciate a greater stamina test and he gets the tentative vote in a wide open renewal of the race these connections won last year. Master Of Wine may have been let in lightly by the handicapper after a smart effort at Epsom last time while He's Amazing is a consistent sort with course form who should run well.
  1. Masaarr
  2. Master Of Wine
  3. He's Amazing
