THERE was just the one selection on Saturday at a big price and although the money came for the horse he ran disappointingly.
Mister Trader is the type of horse I feel I could do well with as I have a few ideas to get him back on track. October is now 3.5pts down and well done to all winners on Saturday.
Good luck for Sunday and to Scotland – although it won't be easy I fancy them for three goals.
Brother Bear ran in a Group 1 last time and although beaten over 13 lengths it was on very testing ground. This is a big drop in class for a horse beaten less than a length in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot. Connections go for cheekpieces here and he should be extremely hard to beat.
Turbojet won about as easily as is possible last time out at Listowel. That was on heavy ground and although conditions aren't too testing on Sunday the course is soft. The form of that last run makes him the one to beat even with Hurricane Darwin in the race. It should be a straight fight between the two although if returning to his best form Rightdownthemiddle couldn't be ruled out but I do like Turbojet.
Children's List is on my shortlist for this season as he looks a natural chaser. I really liked his win against Edwulf at Punchestown last year and he can kick on this season. It's his first run this year which is a concern but he should have too much for these rivals.
