Near the top of his game again Kieren Fallon can guide GALTYMORE LAD to victory ahead of Cape To Rio. Mick Channon's Indesatchel colt was a gallant second to Toolain at Ascot last month and as long as there isn't significant rain (unproven on anything softer than good) he can lead them home. Chasing him hard should be Cape To Rio who would welcome any showers and he is another whose recent Listed form looks solid, although stablemates Bahceli and Reckless Reward are not discounted either. Brocklesby winner Chiswick Bey is highly-thought-of and it is intriguing that he is stepped back up in grade, however the stable's main hope will be Wooton Bassett who has attracted the attention of potential buyers and this unbeaten colt has had his form handsomely franked. Diamond Geezah, Majestic Myles and Super Sprint fourth Mappin Time are considered, with the other major player to mention being Tom Sawyer who needs to improve on his Tipperary win but could well do.
