Van Beethoven is one the most experienced in the field and landed a Group 2 sprint at the Curragh recently with stable companion North Wind three lengths behind. The Ballydoyle colt looks sure to be thereabouts at the finish and is preferred to Konchek, who disappointed in the Norfolk at Ascot but still finished in front of Charming Kid. Advertise found only Calyx too good in the Coventry at Ascot and should go well again but the latter is trained by John Gosden and the Newmarket handler runs LEGENDS OF WAR in this. The Scat Daddy colt made a winning start in novice company at Yarmouth when showing an impressive turn of foot and it would be no surprise if he proves up to this level. Dunkerron and Sporting Chance look up again it in this company.
