    Not a race I’m looking to go mad in, as the short priced Trueshan looks solid.

    I’d like it softer for Princess Zoe, but I’ll probably bet her anyway. Well beaten by Trueshan last time, but I thought she ran ok, and I’d love 10’s.

    It’s almost impossible to make a case for Nicholas T, but his run last week won’t have taken too much out of him, and I could see him running in for fourth if it’s a going day, and things fall right.

    The other one who looks overpriced to me is The Mediterranean, and he looks to have decent place prospects.

    I’m actually a fan of Hamish to and as you say the hard race trushan and Strad had may effect the result

    Def think Trueshan can be taken on here , he likes to get his foot in and he won’t get this so I’ll def be looking for e.w plays ,

    Trueshan still the best here. Won very easily last time.

    I def think Trueshan is vulnerable here , def get why Hamish is being supported but the other that interests me is The Mediterranean , you can be disappointed by the last run and worry about stable form ( to be fair not many runners and most bigger priced ) but that Leger run sticks in the mind

    Win Hamish

    E.w The Mediterranean

    Hukum made a noise when he got beat by Hamish, so I think Hamish has been overbet a bit. I think BS and Hamish should be about the same price really.

    “Trueshan still the best here. Won very easily last time.”

    Did he? Looked like they had a protracted battle for a good furlong to me with Trueshan asserting late on

    This is one of those races where I think I would kick myself if I didn’t bet him at a price like this, so it’s Stradivarius at 4-1 for me

    Strad aint the horse he was and Trueshan can be taken on , they both had a hard race last time , it may well pay to take on the horses that ran at longchamp in all races

    In what is possibly Strads ever run before going to stud career I think they want to give him chance to go out in a win

    Win, lose or draw he has been a great horse to watch over the years

    Master of Reality hasn’t done much this year but is a big price for a horse who finished a close third in the gold cup a couple of years ago and should enjoy the ease in the ground. The trainer is in fair form too. I’ve backed him ew at 80-1 with b365.

    With the bit of rain this morning softening the ground, in the style that that bloke off the Fast Show who lived in a shed: “Today, I shall be mostly backing Frankels, Nathaniels and Pivotals”
