EL VIP 16-1
It’s time for one of my Ten to Follow horses and a horse I said we would get a right touch with in a handicap and this could be it with him on a low mark like this. Please be aware though that El VIP has not currently made the cut for the race but by next week he should have. It’s not NRNB (non runner no bet) so don’t bet if you don’t want to lose your stake without a run. It doesn’t bother me because I know my antepost long term works so I am willing to take the chance.
This was my write up in my Ten to Follow post:
EL VIP (IRE) 4yo bay colt Breeding: Pivotal (UK) – Elle Danzig (GER) . Trainer: Luca Cumani . Owner: Al Shaqab Racing.
Rated 94 means we are going to get a right touch on this horse in a handicap. He is far better class and I can see many wins for this horse, I think he will prove that 1m 2f & 1m 4f will be his distances. Last time out he won over 1m, he wasn’t too good away and needed a bit of early encouragement, he was always at the back but it was inside the last furlong that he proved he wants farther by running away from his rivals at the end. It was an outstanding performance as the only 3yo in the race to outbattle more experienced rivals and he is guaranteed to improve, an exciting prospect this season.
