Forecast

Tiger Moth (5/6), Patrick Sarsfield (4/1), Red Kelly (8/1), Buckhurst (9/1), Silence Please (12/1), Bolivar (12/1), Up Helly Aa (16/1), Cormorant (16/1), Rakan (33/1), Fresnel (66/1), Geometrical (66/1), Broad Street (100/1), Mr Mooj (100/1)

Verdict

TIGER MOTH hasn't been seen out since pushing stablemate Santiago very close in the Irish Derby but Aidan O'Brien's highly progressive 3-y-o is confidently expected to take this en route to tackling better company later this autumn. Buckhurst is far more exposed but rates a very smart colt so is fancied to chase him home along with in-form Patrick Sarsfield.

  1. TIGER MOTH (IRE)
  2. BUCKHURST (IRE)
  3. PATRICK SARSFIELD (FR)
