Roughly 100 minutes to go before the horses will be ready to rock in the Duke Of York 6f Sprint (Group 2). I have put a sizeable bet on Inxile and cannot help but drool over its chance at the current prices still. I find myself needing to strap my hands around my waist to avoid the temptation of a further bet. I must remember I do not have unlimited funds and there will be plenty more value selections throughout summer that will entertain my interest like today.
No matter where I look I cannot find any quotes on the current well-being of Inxile. Dandy Nicholls has been suspiciously quiet about the horses chance and it could be that he is hoping for a huge betting pay day and does not want to spoil the horses price until before they go to post.
All I do know from quotes earlier this season is that Inxile was not expected by connections to win or go close last time and was considered in need of the run. It is therefore highly encouraging that he did manage to win and put in a career best showing despite not being cherry ripe. Something of which he should be today....
