Verdict

With so many open to improvement stepping up in trip, this looks wide open. Ivanhowe is a leading contender as he won a Group 2 trial at Cologne over 1m3f in good fashion beating Empoli a couple of lengths with Schulz, Quinzieme Monarque and Noble Galileo further behind. Lucky Speed is another to consider having just got the better of Flamingo Star and Bermuda Reef in Munich with another three of these further back but the vote goes to NICOLOSIO. He beat Probably seven lengths at Hanover in May and looks to have every chance of rewarding trainer Waldemar Hickst a first German Derby success with William Buick doing the steering. Global Bang finished runner-up in the German 2000 Guineas and should go well for last year's winning yard.
