Mo You Think to run
Looks good - I'd just bump VE up into the value and drop the Jap down into the Unders (without even looking at its price - sneaky chance to get balloted for mine) - would be keen to get on Capt in a first 3yo home market.Race is wide open for mine.
Zaaki @ 3.50
State of Rest @ 12
Dragon @ 21
Captivant @ 26
He might be able to fall into a hole if a number run their best but he is like the Masky boy of mile + races - just not fast enough to get into the race - maybe worth throwing into exotics if your desperate to flesh them out but my guess is he runs past a few tired horses late and finishes 6th-8th - he is a genuine 100/1 shot - just not that good any moreThe Jap at 100/1 isnt terrible for a roughie for mine. Runs to his best good get into the top 5
They will 100%.In all seriousness though the only chance Mo has is if they get their hands off their dicks and actually choose to ride him forward - that's the only way the 3yos win it - settle in the first 3 and make the older horses with the weight chase. Given how he was ridden in the Guineas (too far back for mine) I am not sure whether they have the cajones for it.
I wouldn't be so sure - these connections are renowned for having little initiative and being very defensive.They will 100%.
Trainers know that's the only way a 3 year old can win. Look at Castelvecchio - ridden dead at every start but in the Cox Plate they lit him up early and was in first handful.
Anamoe will go forward and be very hard to beat.
Ah yes the mythical upside. Lets hope he can find it.
