Ortensia is a relatively straight forward selection here. She is a good bit clear of anything in this race on form. Her last run in the July Cup was good considering the ground was very soft. I think on good ground here she should be a very strong favourite and I’m having a lot of difficulty coming up with any alternatives, as the field seems full of horses of a lower class or ones that aren’t on form. I would be slightly concerned that possibly Spirit Quartz could start his threatened run to top class here but he doesn’t seem as good value as the Aussie here, altough  ill have small saver just in case.

2 Points Ortensia win 7/1 Bet365/Coral
