1:50: BEYOND REASON was a decent G2 juvenile winner and she patent;y needed the run at Sandown for her seasonal debut. She meets all the trends and 25/1 is way too big, IF she has retained an interest. JUBILOSO has been trickier to place I suspect than Stouty first thought. A C3 AWT at Chelmsford, followed by a C4 7ll Newbury win, straight into a G1 Coronation Stakes, where she was 3rd behind Hermosa who lost yesterday. In this G3 company, she might deliver the goods she’s capable of. PERFECTION is also of trends int rest.
2:25 DUKE OF HAZZARD caught the eye when winning the Sir Henry Cecil Stakes LTO, albeit that it represented a drop back to Listed class. However, a quick return to the track, and a field size in which he’s never been unplaced, plus the blinkers might keep the improvement going. I think I’m sounding like I’n making too many excuses. BIOMETRIC has a bit of a task on today, and will need to improve to win. However he’s noyt got many miles on the clock and he improves every time. His win last time out in the Britannia Stakes has been working out well so far.
3:00 Dominic Ffrench-Davis is one of the truly good people in racing and has a loyal following of owners, regularly produces the goods and remains bewilderingly unfashionable. He runs INDEED here and his runs this season leave little doubt that he is still 5lbs in hand of the handicapper and possibly more. At 16/1 he is great e/w value. BEAT LE BON catches the eye on trends, as does SENIORITY who won this last year. Only 3lb higher in the weights and Ryan Moore on board has to backed..
3:35 All we’re really trying to do is avoid backing 1/3 on BATTASH who should win this. All the rest are in with a chance. COPPER KNIGHT might suffice, or BIG BROTHER’S PRIDE, but I’m going for RUMBLE INTHEJUNGLE who won the Molecomb last year he’s high on the trends and is value at all prices down to 14/1
