Scholarship 22/1 EW 5 places B365 – The trends will tell you that it doesn’t pay to look much further than the top 3 in the market here or Aiden O Brien for that matter but the last couple of running’s have bucked that trend with an 11/1 winner and a whopping 150/1 outsider who bucked almost every trend there is for the Clive Cox yard in 2022. His runner today has only won an ordinary race to date but did so in good style and should progress further today. He will most likely get a good pace to run at from what looks a perfect draw and should play a hand if good enough as we feel he could be.

King’s Stand Stakes
Mooneista 12/1 Win Only – Ran a big race here in the Commonwealth Cup last year and seems to have returned a much improved filly this term. Arrives here in form having just been squeezed out in a G2 event where she looked a tad unfortunate and could go one better back down in trip today. Should get a really strong gallop to aim at which should play to the strengths of this fast finishing hold up horse. Last race produced a very decent looking time and she finished ahead of a couple of previous G1 winner. I would not put anyone off a small EW nibble on Mondammej 150/1 who will also be held up and finishing late from the right side of the draw.

Bring On The Night 9/2 win only – Two wins on the flat for Andre Fabre before joining Willie Mullins who when teaming up with Ryan Moore in this race has to be respected. Won a novice event over hurdles before looking a little novicey upped in grade at Cheltenham. Yard has a really good knack of sneaking one in here that has bags up his sleeve and we are in no doubt that this years runner will prove to be no different. Surrey Gold 16/1 looks a sound EW bet if able to go on this much quicker ground.

Harrovian 10/1 win only – John Gosden has won this race 4 times and besides the age of his entry this year Harrovian fits many of the trends that do well here. Not at the races when plunged in at the deep end last time out but had previously run arguably his best race to date when 4th in a G3. This looks a much more realistic target and there will be few in here that can boast that sort of form.

Copper Horse Stakes
Red Verdon 80/1 EW 5 places Bet365 – Group and Listed winner who looks vulnerable based on this years efforts but has fallen in the weights, comes here with the yard going well,gets ideal conditions and Hollie Doyle in the saddle all of which makes this a very interesting and lively outsider today.
