Verdict

This is an excellent race for the younger generation with 3 year olds winning 7 of the last 12 renewals and this year looks to be no exception, the two to concentrate on are Expert Eye who won the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot and the unbeaten WITHOUT PAROLE who won a listed race at Sandown on his penultimate start and followed up in the St James’s Palace at Royal Ascot by half a length from Gustav Klimt, he remains open to further improvement and is very much the one to beat.

Selection

WITHOUT PAROLE 7/4
