Forecast

Great King (13/8), Encourage (5/2), Act Of Wisdom (11/2), Haajoos (13/2), Lightening Shore (7/1), Freddy Flintshire (8/1), Tease And Seize (100/1), Lindwall (125/1)

Verdict

An interesting race in which all eyes will be on ACT OF WISDOM, who fetched 1,100,000 gns as a yearling and represents powerful connections. He is bred to be smart and it will look highly significant if the market speaks in his favour. Great King and Haajoos are other likely-looking types, particularly the former, but Encourage shaped well on debut at Newbury and he is feared most.

  1. ACT OF WISDOM (IRE)
  2. ENCOURAGE
  3. GREAT KING (FR)
