Win last year by San Benedeto, and I fancy a repeat. He’s only a few pounds higher, and I just get the impression that he’s been kept back for this. He was impressive enough last year, and Bryan Carver Booker, which takes a handy 5lb’s off.
Stablemate Secret Investor is a nice type, certainly consistent enough, but there’s a chance he could go for The Grimthorpe, while Jerrysback, who I just really like generally, could also be Doncaster bound.
I’d have to consider covering either of that pair, but right now, happy to have a few quid on San Benedeto.
DOMAINE DE L’ISLE for me at 14/1 four places.
I don’t think he got home at Ascot last time out behind Ballyoptic but I think this tip and round will see him continue his progression and how come he is 14/1 and Bennys King is half the price?
Sadly off after an inspection this morning.
Storm whatsisname left the course waterlogged.
Was really looking forward to this one.
Fancied the Nichols horses and the bottom weight and five others!
Second cancellation of this race in three years.
