Verdict

European raiders have won three of the five renewals with Aidan O'Brien picking up last year's race. He runs Dewhurst third George Vancouver here who makes more appeal than stablemate and Listed winner Lines Of Battle. Dundonnell has leading claims on his defeat of Steeler at York as the latter went on to beat today's rival Artigiano at Newmarket when the favourite, FANTASTIC MOON, was hampered and only finished fifth. Jeremy Noseda's colt is fancied to prove that running all wrong and come out best on a fast surface that will suit. The home challenge looks a strong one as Balance The Books has already beaten Brown Almighty and Joha and the latter has subsequently won a Grade 1 trial at Keeneland. Chad Brown also runs Noble Tune, a major threat on his impressive victory in the Pilgrim Stakes at Belmont and preferred to Gervinho, also unbeaten having scored over C&D last month.
