Verdict

3 year olds have won the last 3 renewals but the 4 year olds look stronger this year and it should turn out to be a match between Urban Fox who won comfortably at the Curragh last time and the Lockinge winner RHODODENDRON who disappointed at Royal Ascot but is expected to bounce back over this course and distance.

Selection

RHODODENDRON 3/1
