Verdict

No favourite has won this in the last 10 years which doesn't bode well for likely market leader GALE FORCE TEN. But that's the only negative surrounding the Ballydoyle colt as the third has franked the form of his second in the Irish 2000 Guineas behind stablemate Magician and he was just beaten in the French 2000 Guineas prior to that. He can reverse recent trends as none of his rivals can boast that level of form. Tawhid might need some rain to fall to take his chance but his third in the German 2000 Guineas wasn't a bad run and he is possibly more effective over this shorter trip. Garswood will also benefit from the drop in distance and can't be discounted while Montiridge is consistent and won a Listed race at Sandown last month. The unbeaten Mutin may prove best of the French raiders and Music Master possibly has place claims but it looks like most of the others have a bit to find to play a part.
