Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

FAROUK D'ALENE looks another top prospect for Gordon Elliott, who has a good record in this race, and he can remain unbeaten. Gigginstown could well enjoy a 1-2-3, with Lieutenant Command and Fire Attack solid contenders. Champagne Gold has more to offer in this sphere also.

Betting Forecast

6/4 Farouk D'alene (Fr), 5/1 Lieutenant Command (Fr), 13/2 Fakiera (Fr), 11/2 Fire Attack (Ire), 15/2 Champagne Gold (Ire), 16/1 Botani (Ire), 300/1 X' Girl (Ire)
