Verdict

This is a tight race on the figures but ORAVAR is worth siding with. He is expected to confirm placings after he got the better of Chief Of State, Singfonico and Garden Party last month and has won three times at this distance. Chief Of State rates a serious contender, Garden Party should be involved but needs to be excused a bad run last time, and Herstel is likely to attract market support.
