I’m never a fan of horses being able to compete with Group 1 level sprinters after 1 good run and I think the favourite here is far too short. Alpha Delphini was an big eye catcher in the Kings Stand and is weighted here to get the better of Muthmir. He is certainly a couple of point’s overpriced here on that run. The draw is a negative around this silly sprint track but he comes from behind anyway so it’s not the end of the world. I have him as a 5/1 shot so 8/1 is certainly too big.

Pactolus although on the face of it looks a AW specialist, his form of the turf is actually very consistent and given his good draw here and a good run last time he is on a mark here that is well within his grasp. 25/1 is too big and the place value seems to be very good.

I had changed my mind here from an earlier selection Glory Awaits . He was decent enough last time for the first time in a while . If he is on the way back the 33/1 is going to look big . I’ll have a point win saver just in case to save the tv from damage if he were to win .

Farquhar has been placed in this race before and I think has a few excuses for poorer runs this year. He is 6lbs below his 3rd place here 2 years ago and has showed some signs of a possible return to form. Surly this would be the race to kick on. 40/1 looks great value
