Forecast

Duke Of Mantua (4/7), Sword Zorro (10/3), Magnanimous (4/1), Fight Zone (5/1), Artistic Work (17/2), Kailash (10/1), Men Of Dreams (33/1), Laelaps (50/1), Flexible Approach (50/1), Covert Mission (50/1), True Conviction (50/1), Valderrama (66/1), Rugaday (66/1), Pat Costello (80/1), Massaman (100/1), Macs Dilemma (300/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these are open to any amount of progress after promising debut efforts. DUKE OF MANTUA fits right into that category having shaped as if this step up in trip is just what he requires when third at the Curragh 11 days ago. Sword Zorro is another open to improvement and gets the vote to chase the selection home, ahead of Magnanimous and Artistic Work.

  1. DUKE OF MANTUA (IRE)
  2. SWORD ZORRO (IRE)
  3. MAGNANIMOUS (IRE)
