Verdict

Just eight runners contest this Group two event but there is plenty of talent in action. Aiden O'Brien is double handed with Go For Gold and Rio De Janeiro, but we will give the vote to Let The Lion Roar, with Rule Of Law possibly the main danger. They say there is nothing better than classic form and John Dunlop's colt has it in abundance. He finished just a length behind North Light in the Epsom Derby and then went down by just four lengths in the Irish equivalent. Big race specialist Mick Kinane is in the plate again and the combination will be hard to beat. Go For Gold belied his odds of 25/1 when chasing home Maraahel in the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood last time and can make his presence felt here today. While Rio De Janeiro should not be underestimated following a comfortable victory in a maiden last time. Rule Of Law has finished ahead of the selection in the Dante, at Epsom and at the Curragh, but he did have the better luck in running on all three occasions, so in this small field we expect Let The Lion Roar to get a clear passage and land this valuable prize.
