Aragorn/Grassy

Yeah, I hear what your saying, but surely a truer run race would have been more help to the out-and-out stayer, while the sprint finish should have favoured the VC winner?<br>Not sure about the weight concession either, as KS would be at least 15lbs higher in most ratings before the race.<br>I am not knocking KS for any of his previous runs, but still feel his latest was below expectations. The Official Handicapper wasn’t too impressed either, as he has dropped KS by 1lb – not an enormous amount, but about what you’d expect for a first below-par run?<br>Of course, he should still have a favourite’s chance in the GC, but ceased to be a betting proposition, imo, when he didn’t assert more easily on Saturday.<br>Of the others, War of Attrtition, given normal GC ground, will probably be my bet, with some sort of f/c to include KS and Exotic Dancer, which I agree are the only other serious contenders.
