Barsanti is surely only going down to York and coming back to pick up the money isn’t he…!? Okay, maybe it’s not quite as simple as finding money in the street, but I don’t think it’s far off it! His run at Royal Ascot in the Hardwicke last month was a cracker, and he can continue trainer Roger Varian’s red-hot form.
Back at Ascot in the Wolfteron, Snoano popped up in a tight finish to win, showing a great attitude to force his way through a small gap late on. This has been the target for him all along, and he has picked up some more led on his back, but he looks up to the task.
He will get the pace to run at that he needs in this race, and might be a good each-way price to boot.
You might remember that Sir Dancealot returned to action at HQ looking like he’d been locked in the feed room!
Honestly, he was bigger than me at Xmas. However, after two more tries he is finally fit now, and ready to go. Not only that, but the trainer’s form has improved and he ran against a French Grade one performer in his latest race. This time, he’s in the right company and has a very important high draw.
I’m backing Irish horse Gustav Klimt in this race. Aidan O’Brien and his team went close with a much lesser light in this division on the opening day of the festival. This lad also took a nice step forward from his debut when he won easily over seven furlongs at the Curragh a couple of weeks ago.
There’s really no need to look any further than him, he’s another top prospect by his mighty sire Galileo and maybe he’s the champion two-year-old we’ve all been waiting eagerly for.
The price of Limato may of tightened up a touch, but to be fair the the 6/1 on offer at the start of the week was never going to last even with you PADDY!!!!
Now, he is rated 120 so only two lbs lower than the short-priced favourite here. Though he is easy to ride, as he drops in and takes his time early. All I’m saying is… Caravaggio LOOK OUT!
