Betting Tip: Arod @ 11/4 with bet365

Decorated Knight did me a good turn when winning a Listed contest at Goodwood last time, but this is a tougher test and I have to desert him for AROD. He is hardly an original selection in that he is clear favourite – Betfair go a top price of 3/1 – but he has plenty going for him as the winner of last year’s renewal and the fact he is unrealised for that success, as well as a subsequent Group 2 victory at Ascot. He arguably bettered those performances when making Solow pull out all the stops in the Group 1 Sussex Stakes, going down my a mere half length, and he can be forgiven a couple of well beaten efforts in Australian Group 1 company at the end of last year. If the gallop reports can be believed, he’s come on a ton for his reappearance third at Ascot and, still relatively lightly-raced, he looks to have an outstanding chance of defending his crown.

He had two lengths to spare over the reopposing Custom Cut 12 months ago and he should again take care of that horse. A bigger danger might be Roger Varian’s Mindurownbusiness, who has proved a fine performer on the all-weather since joining current connections and has a 2-4 record on turf.
