Count Salazar ran a fair race in defeat at Perth yesterday considering he hung his chance away throughout.
Today’s shortlist consists of…
Longchamp 4.05 Sixth Sense
Doncaster 4.10 Akeed Champion
Doncaster 5.15 Elhaame
Sixth Sense theoretically has less on his plate than at the Curragh last time but is the most exposed of the four runners here. Has the form in the book though and looks fair value in that respect and should give a good account.
Akeed Champion has been progressing nicely for Richard Fahey and has the right man on board to be delivered late and should be in the shake up.
Elhaame has been targeted at this race ever since winning at York. He’s tough and consistent, and should take all the beating here. So therefore, my best of the day is…
Doncaster 5.15 ELHAAME
…who has been forced a shade odds-on but would merit a 1pt recommended bet at even -money or bigger.
