Forecast

Quadrilateral (11/8), Billesdon Brook (9/2), Lavender's Blue (6/1), Lady Bowthorpe (15/2), Maamora (14/1), Indie Angel (14/1), Onassis (16/1), Look Around (16/1), Posted (22/1), Romola (22/1), Stylistique (50/1)

Verdict

A strong Group 3, featuring two former Group 1 winners. They look the obvious pair to focus on, with QUADRILATERAL, who has Ryan Moore taking over in the saddle, narrowly preferred to last month's Falmouth runner-up Billesdon Brook. Last year's winner Lavender's Blue may prove best of the rest.

  1. QUADRILATERAL
  2. BILLESDON BROOK
  3. LAVENDER'S BLUE (IRE)
