Verdict

Aidan O'Brien won this prize with Treasure Beach in 2011 and ADELAIDE can follow suit. The latter just failed to land a Grade 1 at Belmont last month, beating Sheldon and Global View in the process, and stablemate Belisarius should ensure a decent pace. Tourist has won all three starts on Turf and he looks best of the home team representing Bill Mott, although Divine Oath has scope for improvement having won a Grade 3 here last time.
