A tough task for punters with so many newcomers to consider but the last three favourites have all won. VON BLUCHER will likely start near the head of the betting after going close on his debut at Sandown and with Ryan Moore replacing Frankie in the saddle. The latter is claimed by his retainers for the 185,000gns purchase Jarir, a brother to the smart Oasis Knight among others. Stablemate Manaafidh is out of a prolific mare and Paul Hanagan's choice ahead of Muntazah while William Buick goes with Folkswood ahead of Lovell. House Of Commons showed promise on his debut at Newbury and is another to consider.
