I think this market would look a lot different if Muthmir hadn’t run poorly enough in the July Cup. He just couldn’t get involved in the finish there but that can happen in sprints and one re-look at the Kings Stand confirms to me he is a Group 1 Sprinter. He travelled supremely there and but for a bump over a furlong out and perhaps going down the wrong side at the finish he could have won that race. I actually have him as a solid favourite here and the others have it to prove they are up to that level. Out Do looks to be flying and he could be the main danger. I think Muthmir should be around 5/2 so double the price has to be taken.

I’m going for the totally obvious here in Magic City. He has an excellent course record, has had a light enough season and had more than likely been prepared for this. I’m not getting over excited as he is on a tough mark but with the very good 5lbs claimer on tomorrow he should be able to get competitive. 20/1 is simply too big and hovering up the remaining scraps of that will be value
