The Racing Horse Verdict: We have to acknowledge Aidan O'Brien relies solely on Wembley when he was 1 of 7 Ballydoyle representatives left in at the five-day confirmation stage and the trainer has won this race nine times. This January colt is going to very hard to beat but we are opposing him with ONE RULER (16 April). His recent third in a 7f Doncaster Listed race has been working out well and he improved again over this additional furlong last time. He was well ridden at Newmarket where the consensus suggested he raced on the best ground but the way he drew away was something else and could easily improve past Wembley, and at 10/3 best price guaranteed looks perceived value. He was supposedly available at 4/1 but we could not get on at that price and do not know anybody who has, though we have banked the 7/2 and expect him to start closer to 11/4.
