11) BELGARION

 

BELGARION, who produced a stunning run to win the 2020 edition of this race will get the services of Piere Strydom for the 2022 renewal. He finished just under 5.5 lengths back on Kommetdieding in the 2021 edition of the race. This will be his thrid run after a rest so he should be cherry-ripe when the stall gates fly open on Saturday. Can the Snaith-trained gelding add to his July tally?
