Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

KEHAILAAN sets the standard after two solid efforts at Newcastle. He has to prove he handles this different surface but makes most appeal. Special Directory has a very appealing pedigree for this surface being related to US dirt performers and she could go well. Thunderclap is another interesting newcomer with Oisin Murphy booked.

Betting Forecast

5/4 Kehailaan (Ire), 4/1 Arctic Emperor, 17/2 Thunderclap (Ire), 9/1 Special Directory (Usa), 20/1 Khufu, 40/1 Helm Rock, 40/1 Jenson Benson (Ire), 33/1 Divine Balance (Usa), 16/1 Beyond Infinity, 100/1 Frankeur (Fr), 250/1 Sovereign Moon, 250/1 Shamrock Wine (Ire)
