Forecast

Sovereign (5/2), Fujaira Prince (3/1), Twilight Payment (9/2), Passion (6/1), Search For A Song (7/1), Micro Manage (8/1), Barbados (33/1), Raa Atoll (150/1)

Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has a superb record in this contest and his SOVEREIGN is taken to enhance it further following his runner-up effort to Enable in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot in July. All roads lead to the Melbourne Cup for Twilight Payment and he's the main danger to the selection on paper, ahead of last year's winner Search For A Song.

  1. SOVEREIGN (IRE)
  2. TWILIGHT PAYMENT (IRE)
  3. SEARCH FOR A SONG (IRE)
