Magic Tips Best Bet - J&B Met 2015
Jockey: Bernard FAYD'HERBE - Trainer: Brett CRAWFORD
LEGISLATE (SCRATCHED) was below-par last time but his brilliance is unquestionable. It has been reported that he had a lung infection but it is very concerning that he still takes his place in this line-up, a mere three weeks later.
LOUIS THE KING is top class and he has come back to best after his July mishap. He showed his mettle with a cracking last Queen's Plate effort and will also prefer this trip.
