Forecast

Dubai Legacy (4/7), Napanook (7/4), Cool Reflection (12/1), Illegitimate Gains (40/1), Twilight In Paris (66/1)

Verdict

DUBAI LEGACY fund the step up to Group 2 company beyond him at Ascot last month, But the Godolphin colt had made a winning debut at Doncaster before that with a subsequent winner back in third and looks the one to beat on that form. Napanook disappointed when sent off favourite over 5f at Nottingham last time but finished closer over today’s trip earlier and is preferred to Twilight In Paris. Cool Reflection is a half-brother to a Listed winner among others and makes more appeal than Illegitimate Gains of the newcomers.
