We quite like two here. Firstly, San Donato, who has been a big improver of late – with his most recent run at Kempton being in a very good time. We’re going with Heartwarming though, who never got any sort of run behind Sergei Prokovfiev a couple of weeks ago and looks to be over-priced based on her finishing position there.
Duke Of Firenze has dropped to a very nice mark and caught the eye at Catterick last time, suggesting he could be ready to pick up one of these races. At a bigger price, East Street Revue is an each-way option as he has also dropped to a mark below his last winning one.
We really like the favourite Magna Grecia. The fact he was supplemented for this would suggest he’s stepped forward a lot from his last run and that form had already appeared to be the best of offer here. Phoenix Of Spain would look the solid each-way option in the race and represents the biggest danger to the favourite.
We’re very keen on Young Rascal, who looks to have everything in his favour here and has by far the most potential in the field. Weekender is a nice type, but would look to need further than this, while Communique has been exposed in this grade of race before.
We like another favourite here in Chairmanoftheboard, mainly because this race really seems to lack depth. Charimanoftheboard bolted up on his only start at Goodwood in a good time recently with his trainer declaring after the race that he was the best horse he’s trained since Zafeen. May be one for a double with Young Rascal!
We really like Cogry here who won this race last year and is only two pounds higher here for trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies, who has hit the ground running.
We reckon Gumball has an excellent chance of beating Redicean here. He arguably has the best form in the race and gets weight off Redicean, so should be very difficult to beat.
