The Sussex Stakes looks like it might be the race of the year, the market attention is being held towards the top of the betting with the Irish and English Guineas winners lining up.
At an each way price Aidan O’Brien sends over Vatican City off the back of a respectable run in the Derby. The trip maybe taxed him too much but his run before saw him come second to Siskin in the Irish 2000 Guineas.
He didn’t get much luck in running but when he got the daylight to run into he finished powerfully into a never troubling second.
Double digit odds underestimates his chances with that line of form in the books with a clearer run.
