Despite the two Ballydoyle runners Carlisle Bay and Kyprios lining up with lively chances I feel the likeliest of outcomes is for either to play second fiddle.
It’d be remiss to ignore Ralph Beckett’s Scope who produced a solid performance on return however in this much tougher contest he looks a tad out of his depth despite the yards very good recent form.
With the Epsom Derby the main aim for the winner of this contest I just cannot look past Adayar. The famous royal blue silks of Godolphin should be lifted aloft in the winners enclosure come 14:55 today. A close second at Sandown on return in a Group 3 trial contest showed he should be up to this level and is likely to improve for this step up in trip. He’ll also be able to handle the softer ground and looks tough to beat.
