    This a group 3 or a group 1?

    It wouldn’t exactly be the most vintage renewal of this contest in my lifetime.

    Still, a race is a race!

    I see Poundland are sponsoring the 5.10 on Friday.

    Wouldn’t this race have been more suitable?

    I was at Epsom to see Rainbow Quest and St Nicholas Abbey win this race – well, I think it was this race!

    Triptych won it twice. Once in a downpour when she looked thoroughly miserable and then again the following year under an inspired ride from Steve Cauthen.

    I may watch a recording of that race instead of this one!

    If pyledriver was to drift to 5/2 id be very tempted

    Manobo is a lunatic
    High definition is a boat
    Hukum is solid but has a few lbs to find with pyledriver

    I feel like retaining this would’ve been the big aim for the entire season too

    Pyledriver 2-1. Free bet.

    Manobo for me.

    Takes a hold, by Sea The Stars out of a Nayef mare who won at 1m-1m2f, the drop to 1m4f could be the making of him.

    No Adayar, no Hurricane Lane, no Yibir, tomorrow is the day he takes centre stage in a 1m4f Group 1.

    I’ll try High Definition, I liked his last run.

    Manobo.

    Very lightly raced for a 4-yo with only four starts but has a great record. Hope he settles early and doesn’t pull as hard as he did in Dubai last time out.

    However, it wouldn’t surprise at all for Pyledriver to lift the trophy as he did face much stiffer competition in Hong Kong and Dubai…

    High Definition for me as well, surely he has enough ability to win a race like this sooner or later?!

    Had a small bet on the Johnston horse too because if you use Yibir as a yardstick he is ridiculously overpriced.

    Pyledriver 9/4

    Don’t get manobo myself, all his form is miles below pyledriver. None of his 3yo form has worked out and his meydan form beating a 90 rated Ian Williams handicapper in East Asia getting weight is not even group 3 form

    I’d have it 6/4 Pyledriver and manobo third fav behind hukum

    He pulls hard again he has no chance at this level

    (I’m well aware that saying this means he will now win on the snaff)

    And I won’t even get started on high definition, if that boat wins then this is the worst group 1 of all time.

    So I’d get on the manobo/high definition reverse forecast if I was you lot

    “this is the worst group 1 of all time”

    That is a very real possibility, terrible race!

    Looks like a solid group 1 performer in pyledriver running against a load of group 3 horses to me

    But iv been horribly wrong far too many times to be overly bullish

    It’s not a great renewal by any means and that’s why I think the one that sets a relatively low bar with an OR of 120 is vulnerable to a potential improver at the race distance.

    Interesting contest.

    PYLEDRIVER
    Win
    Conditions to suit and targeted at this race.
    Difficult to look beyond Frankie’s horse here.
    Manobo main danger, High definition has own ideas about the game. Hukum could also run well and those three the main threats.
    I’ve backed PYLEDRIVER
    Saver MANOBO who has only been beaten once and raced at a higher level than most.
