Saturday see's the first classic of the flat season take place with the 3yo colts all making an effort to become the expensive sires of the future. It looks a one horse race on paper, but is it?
Indeed St Nicholas Abbey has been hyped up galore since it demolished its rivals as a 2yo in the Racingpost Trophy at Doncaster. It was visually impressive and the price for this race became very short instantaneously. On the day it looks like he will be 6-4 or shorter, but with 15 rivals also gunning for victory surely that price is simply too short?
........So frustrated. Wrote an absolute stormer of a preview explaining why I had picked the value and dismissed some of the fancied runners. Not doing it again though sadly!
I know my own mind and so I simply have to state that my Guineas fancy is Inler and he is available at 28-1 on Betfair. I know he has only run once but this horse could be anything and alot of the other horses look held on form by St Nicholas Abbey. If this one manages to improve significantly for the step up in trip then big things can be expected come Saturday at a very nice price.
If you are unsure, then go to sportinglife and look at the horses debut run when it blitzed its maiden by 4 lengths without being asked a question. It also had a racecourse gallop the other week and murdered its 2 stablemates, one is entered in this race and the other won the other week in a handicap comfortably.
Definately not a horse to dismiss!
INLER - 28-1 on BETFAIR.
It could drift, it might not. I have not took the chance though and have backed it already as a precaution!
