Betting

Forecast

Pactolus (5/4), Star Of Southwold (9/4), Felix (6/1), Smile A Mile (8/1), Nonios (14/1), Lunar Jet (20/1), Borodin (33/1)

Verdict

Last year's winner PACTOLUS raises his game at this course and can confirm superiority over Nonios, who was no match for the selection in the 2018 renewal. This is a tougher race and this time more of a threat might be posed by Felix, who having won for both Luca Cumani and Sir Michael Stoute, now starts out for another stable at a realistic level. He will be a big threat if he takes to the Tapeta surface. Smile A Mile, who was ahead of Star Of Southwold last time out, is suggested as the next best.
