Forecast

Master Of The Seas (2/1), Lucky Vega (2/1), Battleground (11/4), Thunder Moon (15/2), St Mark's Basilica (9/1), Masen (14/1), Military Style (16/1), Laws Of Indices (18/1), Wembley (22/1), Mac Swiney (22/1), Charterhouse (33/1)

Verdict

LUCKY VEGA was seriously impressive when running out a convincing winner of the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes over 6f here a month ago, and with 7f expected to be within range, he is very much the one to beat. Battleground already looks a very professional as well as a smart juvenile and has to be feared, while Master of The Seas defends an unbeaten record.

  1. LUCKY VEGA (IRE)
  2. BATTLEGROUND (USA)
  3. MASTER OF THE SEAS (IRE)
