I’ve been talking down Detroit City all year with the attitude that a 5yo can’t beat seasoned campaigners like Brave Inca & Hardy Eustace but the more I look at it, the more I like DC and I hope he drifts on the day to around 4s when the Irish get stuck into HE & BI. Otherwise it’s no bet.

<br>I totally agree.  I’ve tried to pick holes in the imposing grey all season.  Whilst its certainly not a cert, it could prove good value on the day if as you say the Irish get stuck in to the other two main protagonists.  Could Straw Bear be the value?  Excuses for his defeats, has a good cruising speed, could the race be set up for him?
