Forecast

St Mark's Basilica (4/7), Loch Lein (4/1), Prince Of Verona (7/1), Baseman (10/1), Ecliptical (12/1), Duke Of Mantua (16/1), Coulthard (22/1), Perfect Match (25/1), Perfect Sign (50/1), Flying Rock (50/1), Dixie Bluebell (66/1), Hot Voice (66/1), Only Jack (66/1), Breagagh (80/1), Elanora (100/1), Keeper Of Time (100/1), Harry's Hill (100/1), Iva Batt (150/1), True Artist (150/1), Lord Dudley (150/1), The Casino King (200/1)

Verdict

ST MARK'S BASILICA was strong in the betting before shaping well in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes over C&D last time, so this should prove no more than a formality for such a promising colt. Newcomers Prince of Verona and Baseman both have eye-catching pedigrees but will likely need the selection to underperform if they're to make a winning start.

  1. ST MARK'S BASILICA (FR)
  2. PRINCE OF VERONA (USA)
  3. BASEMAN
