2:45 Auteuil

I’ll start this my saying I hope Shaneshill wins this as he is one of my favourite horses but for value here One Track Mind is the clear pick. This race doesn’t look as strong as it has in the past and I think there is nothing between the 4 raiders here. One track mind is a certain stayer goes on soft ground and I think this race will suit him. 12/1 is certainly too big here. He actually looks more of a 7/1 shot.

2 Points win 12/1 Generally

Huntsmans Close has a decent record fresh and is an in and out performer anyway so his two poor runs at the end of last year don’t really worry. He is on a mark here to get involved if he is on a going day. 16/1 is a big enough price in this race to make the risk worthwhile.

1 Point win 16/1 Generally
