Betting

Forecast

Wissahickon (5/2), Poet's Prince (7/2), Elector (4/1), Communique (4/1), Beringer (5/1), Crownthorpe (14/1)

Verdict

A high-class renewal of this event despite the small numbers. Mark Johnston's runners Poet's Prince and Communique are both respected as they have improvement left in them. Similar comments that can be made about both Beringer who won as easily as he liked at Sandown and Elector who found a Group 2 at Royal Ascot too much last time. Ready preference is for WISSAHICKON who looked like a horse with incredible potential when winning at Lingfield last time and is taken to win this on route to pattern company.
  1. Wissahickon
  2. Elector
  3. Beringer
