Betting

Forecast

Ganayem (5/2), Akvavera (7/2), Ace Ventura (4/1), Arigato (6/1), Macaque (7/1), Sing Out Loud (17/2), Running Cloud (25/1), Ateem (28/1)

Verdict

GANAYEM flopped in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot when last seen, but her yard is back firing on all cylinders at present, and she can make her class tell against lesser rivals. Ace Ventura is unexposed and better than he could show on his return, so rates the main threat ahead of C&D winner Arigato, who is on a hat-trick, but is up significantly in the weights.
  1. Ganayem
  2. Ace Ventura
  3. Arigato
