I had Marsha down as one of the bets of the week earlier on but it’s hard to know now with the ground the way it is. This track will suit but we can’t go mad because she is unproven on soft. 7/1 is still a huge price in this race and value.
2 Points win 7/1 generally
First Selection may have finally come down to a mark he can win of. He ran some great races on soft ground in Group 1’s a couple of years ago and paid for it since. He showed a bit of improvement last time out and if he progresses again 28/1 is a big price here. Sir Roderic’s for is all on soft when he ran up a sequence last year. He has also come back down to a reasonable mark.
