Gutaifan got the job done in his usual ‘no thrills’ manner at Donny yesterday, returned at a BSP of 2.94.
Today’s shortlist in Group 1 heavy, namely…
Doncaster 3.45 Storm The Stars
Leopardstown 5.45 Golden Horn
Leopardstown 6.20 Legatissimo
Storm The Stars has shaped with promise in Group 1 company previously, and today’s 1m6f trip could well be answer to finally getting his head in front at the highest level.
Golden Horn is a superstar of a horse but is possibly vulnerable on rain softened ground. Having said that, 2-1 may look a very big price after this race has been run.
Legatissimo is another horse whose connections have raised concern about the ground, but she’s very smart,and very consistent.
Given the doubts about the going at Leopardstown, I’m going to weigh in with…
Doncaster 3.45 STORM THE STARS
…as my best of the day. But given a slight concern about the wellbeing of the Haggas yard, I’ll put this one up as a highlighted horse as opposed to a 1 pt recommended bet.
