Verdict
Trainer Aidan O'Brien landed the spoils in this contest four years running between 2012 and 2016 as well as saddling the runner up in each of the last two years. The War Front colt, FORT MYERS can resume the winning thread following a number of gallant efforts in Group company over the summer. Justifier, winner of a Listed contest at Tipperary in August and British raider, Above for the Archie Watson yard appear to be the biggest dangers. Joseph O'Brien won this race 12 months ago and his representative Unforgetable should not go unnoticed in this.
  1. Fort Myers
  2. Justifier
  3. Above
