Verdict

TROPICS (NAP) looks to have strong claims of repeating last year's win in this. He was back to something like his best when finding only Slade Power too good in the Group 1 July Cup last time and is the one to beat on that form. Group 1 winner Reckless Abandon also has claims on his best form for Clive Cox as he debuts for Godolphin but Eton Rifles is better with plenty of cut in the ground. Alben Star posted a better effort in the Stewards' Cup last time while Intrinsic and Intibaah are progressive four-year-olds who could both go well.
