Verdict

Aidan O'Brien last won this in 2001 but has an excellent chance with COACH HOUSE in this year's renewal. His Oasis Dream colt has the best proven form emphasised by an impressive Listed victory at the Curragh last month and it's up to the remainder to match him at this level. Coulsty may well be capable of doing so as he blasted his way to a debut victory at Leicester with a subsequent winner five lengths back in second. Richard Hughes prefers him to dual winner Legend Rising while the unbeaten Saayerr could prove best of Willie Haggas' two runners. Both Eccleston and Emirates Flyer made winning debuts and are preferred to the likes of Green Door and Wind Fire while the US raider No Nay Never showed plenty of pace when scoring on the Turf at Keeneland.
