I’m going to be changing the way i’m putting up selections from tomorrow, and try my hand and the lower priced end of the mark for a decent period of time. Its doesn’t mean there wont be any longshots as there will still be the odd standout ones when the price warrants it. I think its more difficult to make a profit at shorter prices but i want to give it a shot and see what happens. Follow at you peril.

I pretty annoyed as I’ve had The Pentagon on my mind for this all week and the price is on the slide downwards there now. I think he is among the best of Ballydoyles 3yo’s and although he didn’t really show it in the Epson Derby i think he could well improve a fair amount here today. This track and ground will be right up his street and I fully expect him to be in the 3. We may just take what remains of the 25/1 EW sooner rather than later.

Predictably I like the 2 big outsiders of the field here. Clever Cookie got no luck in running last year in this and i think if he can get over his draw he can get involved here of this mark. Arch Villain has a remarkable record fresh 011214 and there is every chance he can get involved here at a huge price. He was a very good 4th in last years Ebor which has worked out well, again of a break. 66/1 with 5 places is easily enough to justify the risk.

North Wind didn’t run as good as i hoped at Ascot but i fancy her to be better here at a huge price w/o the fav. She is a speedy filly
