With the Doncaster runner a non starter, the Major offers instead the selection from the Palace House Stakes.
This Group 3 5f sprint has a cracking field.
A win for Bordelescott would bring the house down and lets be fair, this is probably his conditions. It is unlikely he is good enough to win but a place is not out of the question.
Sole Power has two ways of going but will probably cope with conditions and if in his Nunthorpe mood is a danger to all.
Prohibit will also be comfortable with the rattle. He did not seem to go at all on his trip to Dubai and I am happy to put a line through that recent form.
Secret Asset is not an 80/1 shot (Sportingbet). It will not mind the surface and Mrs Chapple-Hyam means business when she books Richard Hughes.
Overall I think the winer comes from Astrophysical Jet, Prohibit or Secret Asset. Back the first for a win with three points. Back the other two each way with a point and have reverse forecast all ways for 6 bets too. Shabash!
