Forecasts

St Patrick's Day (5/4), True Valour (7/4), Smash Williams (9/2), Full Moon (5/1), Ardhoomey (11/1), Medicine Jack (14/1), Fas (25/1), Mr Scarlet (40/1)

Verdict

St Patrick's Day is the headline horse, being a winning brother to Triple-Crown hero American Pharoah and making his debut here for Aidan O'Brien, but he's passed over in favour of recent Epsom third TRUE VALOUR, who has better form in the book. Ardhoomey would appeal more over shorter, while Smash Williams got back on track to some degree last time, and has place claims with 7f looking within his compass.
  1. True Valour
  2. St Patrick's Day
  3. Smash Williams
