Forecast

Pianissimo (5/6), Tajawoz (5/2), Alfaatik (4/1), Ring Cycle (20/1), Blowing Dixie (33/1), Midport (33/1), Gate City (40/1)

Verdict
John Gosden's juveniles are in tip-top form and he holds a strong hand here with the well-bred Alfaatik and PIANISSIMO. The latter looks the pick judged on jockey bookings and the hint looks worth taking. Tajawoz has an AW pedigree and needs monitoring in the market, whilst Ring Cycle is the pick of those with experience over a trip in line with his breeding.
