The main 3yo challenge against the older horses, and in receipt of a valuable 7lbs, Megallan should prove hard to beat. Unplaced in the French Derby last time, he faced an impossible task from stall 15 and would also have been unsuited by the soft ground. He’s previously finished 2nd in the Dante, behind Hurricane Lane, who has since run 3rd in the Epsom Derby, won the Irish Derby as well as a further group 1 in France. Megallan was simply outstayed by the winner that day, as he quickened really well and looked the likely winner before just not quite getting home. That is top class form, the suggestion is this has been his target since the French Derby and he should prove hard to beat here.
