Verdict

SEA SIREN, a multiple Group 1 winner in Australia, joins Aidan O'Brien after making her European debut in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot and hopefully this massive drop in class can see her back to winning ways. Russian Soul has been earning his keep all year with several placed efforts in top company and though he's difficult to win with it's hard to see him out of the first three. Elusive Time has won no less than 13 races in Scandanavia but was a 50/1 chance when making his UK debut and well beaten in the Royal Hunt Cup. Three-year-olds have a fine record in this race so Boston Rocker must be kept on the right side though this will be the first time she's encountered ground as fast as this.
