The Prix D’Amerique comes round again today, with a full field of 18 runners.
As per usual, no coverage of this â‚¬1million race, the most important run in Europe after the Arc, either in the Racing Post or in the betting shops.
But, supposing I were able to place a bet and could therefore have my arm twisted to do so, I’d go (unimaginatively) for Offshore Dream to retain his title, with Niky being an e/w outsider to scamper into a place, especially if there’s plenty of pace on early. Last week’s Cornulier winner, Magnificent Rodney, may be better under saddle, although having Jos Verbeeck holding the reins won’t do his chances any harm. The 18 runners have between them won well over â‚¬15million in career prize money.
Anywhere I can see the race on the net, does anyone know?
