The first selection ahead of the great race from us is the Sir Michael Stoute trained Desert Crown who looks to be the freak in the field, for the handler who has previous winning this race.
The three year old son of Nathaniel was a 280,000gns purchase as a yearling and has been seen twice to date, winning both events emphatically.
Running once last season as a juvenile over 8.5f at Nottingham in November, the colt went on to beat a smart field by close to six lengths.
Saved for this season and said to be only 80% fit for his first outing in the Group Two Dante Stakes at York, he went on to rout a good field by nearly four lengths.
The performance was extremely taking and with him set to improve in a big way for the run he is very hard to look past.
