Forecast

Gustav Klimt (15/8), Librisa Breeze (3/1), Sir Dancealot (4/1), Yafta (6/1), Dream Of Dreams (10/1), Breton Rock (12/1), Dan's Dream (25/1), Tomyris (40/1)

Verdict

GUSTAV KLIMT has done very little wrong at the top level this season but narrowly failed to get his head in front. His running style suggests a drop back to 7f may not be ideal but the Coolmore brains trust will no doubt have plans to overcome that and at Group Two level he is surely going to take a lot of beating. Group One winner Librisa Breeze is a huge threat and Dean Ivory's pride and joy is just as effective over 7f, the only slight concern is fast ground. Sir Dancealot has done nothing wrong this season and as a winner at this level over this distance latest he is sure to make another bold bid but the 3lb penalty just swings the balance elsewhere.
  1. Gustav Klimt
  2. Librisa Breeze
  3. Sir Dancealot
