Larry says, "Some progressive types will head to the start of this Class 4 mile and none more so than SIAM ROYAL ORCHID who looks due to knock in his second career win at his seventh career start. The Shamus Award 4YO showed enough at his first campaign to have a crack at the Group 1 Guineas in May and while outclassed in top 3YO company, his two runs this campaign have been very good and he should be hard to hold out with Louis Beuzelin on-board. OCEAN CROSSING is another progressive 4YO that looks due to win a race like this after having excuses not to finish closer from a wide gate over the mile last start. The Australian-bred has drawn awkwardly again (gate 10) but Vlad Duric is in fine form and he will be hard to hold out under hard riding late. SUN FORMATION - another lightly raced Australian-bred 4YO - is yet to run a bad race at five career starts and given he had traffic excuses at a crucial stage in a similar affair last start, he should play a part with more luck in running from gate 1. Of the others that can win without surprising, LIMíS RAY got back from a wide gate over 1400m last start and was not fully tested through traffic in the straight, so he has plenty more to offer, while CENTURIAN also looked to have plenty in hand at his most recent outing and will add value to exotics. SPIRIT OF BIG BANG is also worth a market watch but this field is much stronger than the weak maiden field he faced last start, SUPER TYCOON and SILENT PRINCE both placed in this company last start and should be competitive, while RUNMINDERBINDERRUN and ARCHIE are not impossible down in the weights. Betting Strategy - SIAM ROYAL ORCHID win."
