Forecast

Alpha Centauri (3/10), Magical (9/1), Laurens (10/1), Happily (12/1), Clemmie (20/1), Dan's Dream (50/1), Lightening Quick (66/1)

Verdict

There seems little point in opposing the very talented filly ALPHA CENTAURI in her bid for a fifth Group 1. Jessica Harrington's stable-star has rock solid form in the book and has won with different tactics in a whole range of different conditions. We may not have seen the best of Magical and Happily and they are both dangers for Aidan O'Brien but Laurens could be the main danger, particularly if she can get an uncontested lead.
  1. Alpha Centauri
  2. Laurens
  3. Magical
