A poor enough days racing tomorrow compared to day 1.
Invisible Man has an exceptional record in very good 1 mile handicaps. He has been poor his last two runs in conditions races over further but obviously prefers the big fields. He has showed his well-being this year of a mark 3lbs higher when an eye-catching 5th in the Royal Hunt Cup and a repeat of that run will give him a great shot here. He isn’t really and each-way price at 14/1 in the bookies, so I’ll go for a bit of win value at 16 on Betfair.

I’m going to take a flyer on one at a huge price here in Swerve. She ran some very decent races in Ireland with Dermot Weld, and has been running on soft ground all the time. The one time she ran on slightly better ground she was a good 3rd in a handicap at the curragh that has worked out exceptionally well since. I’m hoping the much quicker ground here might just be an advantage to her and if so her mark looks decent. She has the assistance of Fallon today and looks worth a small bet at huge odds on Betfair.
½ Point win ½ Point Place Betfair 42 win 11 place
All the evidence so far indicates that there isn’t a lot between Shirocco Star and The Fugue over 12 furlongs and although The Fugue was impressive last time out that was over 10 furlongs and really doesn’t have much of a an impact on this race. The difference in price is too much to ignore at 7/4 and 9/1 and Shirocco Star has to be backed at those odds.
