Betting

Forecast

Stag Horn (13/8), Nuits St Georges (7/2), Just Hubert (7/1), Smart Champion (15/2), Seinesational (17/2), Themaxwecan (9/1), Platitude (10/1)

Verdict

None of these can be ruled out but it could be worth siding with THEMAXWECAN who has shaped better than his recent form figures suggest and took this event 12 months ago. Nuits St Georges is a likeable stayer who arrives on the back of a cosy Newmarket success so is feared most, although sole 3-y-o Stag Horn is another who is sure to make his presence felt.
