QABALA 7/2 – Won the Nell Gwyn in April before finishing a good third in the 1000 Guineas, disappointed in the Irish guineas and reportedly scoped abnormally post race. Rated 109 and not been seen for 47 days are a couple of the negatives.
ONE MASTER 100/30 – Won a French Group 1 last season but at five is older than the ideal profile and all wins have been over shorter.. .
BESHAAYIR 4/1 – Won a Group 2 at the Curragh last time and will likely be involved again.
I CAN FLY 9/2 – Group 2 winner last season who is running consistently, second to BESHAAYIR at the Curragh but showed a fair bit of improvement last time when third at Royal Ascot on unsuitably soft going. Likely to progress again.
This is a good renewal of the race and several have claims but I expect the finish to be fought out between Curragh one two BESHAAYIR and I CAN FLY and my preference is for I CAN FLY 9/2 to reverse the form, she put in a better performance when third in the Duke of Cambridge and is entitled to come on again for the experience.
