This race really revolves around Golden Horn and his stamina. IF the Dante conqueror stays then he will make life very difficult for the rest of the field. Jack Hobbs looks a decent bet at 9/2 given his current rate of progress, and considering the fact that the step up in trip to 1m4f should suit him. If your looking for a possible outsider then an each way bet on Hans Holbein or Storm The Stars look’s good as both are capable of running well at good odds.
