Lord NorthA two time Group 1 winner amassing just over £2 million in prize money. Lord North with an official rating of 123 is well clear of his rivals on all known form and should just be too good for these.
John Gosden does target this race and has a superb record with his horses. However, he is off a long lay off, after bursting a blood vessel when last seen last March.
He will definitely come on for the run, though he has won 4/4 when fresh, be it a lay off or the start of a new season. Goes well first time out and has class over the field, mighty hard to beat.
