There three that I believe have a breaking chance of completing within the six locations on offer in the bookmakers. The major one from this trio is DAZZLING DAN (greatest price 12-1). The three-year-old narrowly beat out Oxted time also contains experience running like the one at Doncaster in fields. He finished third to Pass The Vino in July, and that kind has worked out.
I think MUSICKA (best price 40-1) can be marginally missed in this one, particularly with the number of place terms available. The five-year-old ran fifth and has put this season. He’s finished second to Dakota Lahore, Gold and also Royal Prospect.
COPPER KNIGHT (best cost 33-1) was taking about the big boys this past year, and ought to have a chance from this subject. He finished alongside a horses that were strong despite finishing to Battaash in York. Can easily out perform these chances.
DURSTON (best price 4-1) – Non Runner
SHINE SO BRIGHT (best cost 8-11) produced an absolute belter when beating Laurens at the City Of York, and to be fair there’s nothing in this race at precisely the same league since Laurens. If that run So Bight cans replicate, he must win comfortably.
LETHAL LUNCH (best price 13-2) didn’t have a run when going back to turf in Ascot. He looks to have a cracking opportunity of scoring and comes back into the all-weather a second triumph. He was last seen with this particular surface back in August, where he narrowly beat Diocles of all Rome. He’s two on the all-weather , so I will be stunned to see him out of those areas.
Another one to keep an eye on is ARBALET (best cost 6-1), he may be winless this year but has faced up to a few tricky tasks. He’s a great deal lower in the ratings compared to last season, and is being attempted on the all-weather for the very first time. An intriguing prospect.
THREAT (best price 6-5) should relish this step up in trip, and so for me is the one to beat. He returned to winning ways at York, that has been his second career win from the Gimrack. His two losses to date have come from Arizona and Golden Horde, therefore no real embarrassment there.
LOGICIAN (best price 11-10) has shown no reason why you need to oppose him at the last classic of the year. Frankel’s son is unbeaten, he won at York with ease and the additional furlongs should not be a problem. There are serious question marks surrounding a couple in this subject I think Sir Ron Priestley may be well worth a bet without the favourite.
