Love this race. The fastest 5 furlongs in racing.
Was very impressed with Amomentofmadness in the all-weather championships final. He showed a real speedy cruising speed but had that ability to quicken off the pace. That should be a major asset for this race.
He ran again at Chester this week and I hoped to see him run well and he bolted up. He’s run well in the Dash previously but, to my eyes, looks an improved horse this year and I feel the 20/1 is worth taking.
He’s entered in the race and this has been his target for a little while as it was mentioned earlier this season. The owners want a runner on Derby day according to the trainer.
As for the rest of the notable entries:
– Dark Shot heads the market after rattling home on the rail last year for a close second. He has looked out of sorts since and is surely worth taking on. 12/1
– Caspian Prince is a three time winner of this race. He loves to bowl along up front and the downhill 5f plays to his strengths. Can’t rule him out but he will want lightning quick ground. Probbly not an antepost proposition for that reason. 14/1
– Blue De Vega I think has still got plenty to come and is classy on his day. He’d be a danger if turning up. 14/1
– Duke Of Firenze ran well in the Abbaye over in France last year and has gone well in this before, like a fair few of these entered. Clearly loves the race but is generally an inconsistent sort and he will be high in the weights. 16/1

That’s an outstanding price. I’m in, will be half the price on race-day. Thanks MoM.
As every year, I will also have a bet on Caspian Prince.May 13, 2018 at 23:04 #1353884

Good price with the madness guys
I have backed two in this MAJOR JUMBO at 14/1 because if it turns up I think it will be favourite!!
And a left field one called SHAMSHON at 25/1 which I don’t think will get in but if it does this race will suit and was unlucky at the tack two runs ago!!May 17, 2018 at 05:50 #1354048
Unsurprisingly, Betfair and Paddy Power have cut him into 12s now.
Skybet best price at 14s still.May 17, 2018 at 11:22 #1354069

I had a good look at this last night whilst bored watching the Europa League final.
Boom The Groom is very well handicapped on his best form and this very strong pace will suit him. Should have at least been second LTO when he was stuck behind a wall of horses until late. 16s e/w with Hills is more than fair.May 17, 2018 at 19:19 #1354105
Last years unlucky second ran a stormy today in second behind El Astronaute. The latter would relish this race.
The former has been out of sorts since Epsom last year and when getting upsides the winner, surely ought to have won. I’d want to be on the winner today of the two personally if they both ran in the Dash.
Good shout with Boom the Groom Kev. He’s won I just can’t catch right.
The more I look at it, the more I fancy A Amomentofmadness. For a handicap sprint, I can see myself having quite a chunk on him by the time the race starts.May 17, 2018 at 23:49 #1354129

El Astronaute isn’t entered for this, going to Musselburgh next. Just in case anyone was scratching their heads at his absence.May 18, 2018 at 22:27 #1354247
Cheers for that Kev. Hadn’t realised he wasn’t entered. Strange decision that.May 22, 2018 at 01:27 #1354598
Skybet have A Momentofmadness at 14s still so I’ve topped up on him again.
