It’s hard what to make of Wesley Ward’s Finnegan, who is disputing favouritism for this Group 2, as he has only raced Stateside, winning a Pimlico maiden by five lengths when last seen out in May. His trainer rates him highly, reporting him to be up there with Acapulco, in which case the others are better off staying at home. Coolmore-owned, he could be the next sprinting star and this race has produced some high-class winners – a certain Muharaar took it 12 months ago.

Still, we’ve had just one winning favourite in the last decade and with Mark Johnston’s Buratino, bet365’s 11/4 joint favourite, attempting to defy a penalty – the last six horses to try have finished 202269 – the temptation is to look elsewhere for the winner. And you don’t have to look far to stumble on William Haggas’ AJAYA, who took another step forward when finishing second in a French Group 2 last time (Areen in third), following on from a maiden success at this track, and represents a massively in-form stable who won this race in 2006 and 2010.
