York 2:10

Indy looks one of the most unexposed in this field and there was plenty to like about his seasonal reappearance until he ran out of steam which is probably understandable. His 3yo form is also very good and if he can move on from his seasonal debut here when a bit fitter he can get involved at a big looking 20/1. I’m also going to have a tiny bet at a huge price on Sir Jack Layden . He was a very good 2yo and perhaps suffered for his Meyden trip as a 3yo. He can also improve for his seasonal reappearance here at a big price.

Blaine has an excellent course record to say the least with 3 wins around here. He was poor last time but that can be ignored with sprinting as poor runs are regular in these races. A mark of 100 in well within his grasp judging by his runs last year and 25/1 with 5 places looks huge.

Caspar Netscher has been running well the last year or so at the highest level and on his day is well capable of winning this race. The race terms aren’t the best for him but he looks a good few points too big at 25/1. Also I think Gathering Power may be an improver this year judging by what I saw last year and on her reappearance.  I don’t think the ground will be in her favour here but at 33/1 ill have a min bet just in case as she was my original selection and changing minds leads to frustration.
