Verdict

Ballydoyle landed this prize last year with the smart War Decree and they clearly have their thoughts on introducing another nice type here with three interesting runners. Rostropovich is a half-brother to Zoffany and cost 1,100,000gns at the sales, while Coat Of Arms is a full-brother to stablemate Seventh Heaven. Tentative preference, however, is for BERKELEY SQUARE, who is a Galileo colt out of 1000 Guineas winner Homecoming Queen. Ger Lyons' Camelback looks best of those with racecourse experience.

Verdict

ROSTROPOVICH is presumably the O'Brien number one with Ryan Moore in the saddle, and the son of Frankel seems sure to go close unless inexperience is his undoing. Camelback ran an eye-catching race when third on his debut and can split the O'Brien horses, as Berkeley Square ought to be able to place.
