Godolphin’s Setting Sail heads the betting in the opener on Day One and his form has stacked up nicely in recent weeks, but we have sided with two e/w pokes with up to 5 places on offer with numerous bookmakers.
Firstly, SOTO SIZZLER, who has never finished out of the top two at the track gets on well with Oisin Murphy (form figures 1,2) and gets in off a very attractive weight. He is seeking a turf hat-trick and looks overpriced.
At a massive 20/1, Mark Johnston’s AQUARIUM could also run a big race. He was given too much to do at York latest and has dropped below his last winning mark. The yard won the race four of the last ten years.
