Betting Tip: Mount Logan @ 7/2 with williamhill

With Scottish forced to miss this Group 3 due to a pulled muscle, the race has been thrown wide open with six of the remaining seven runners rated within 2lb of each other – the exception being Majeed who is the outsider of the lot. Given that Aryad looks more of a 1m2f performer, the distance he won over last time, and Berkshire has his stamina to prove over thus far, we can narrow it down to four. Of these, Sir Michael Stoute’s King’s Fete has been put in as favourite and that’s understandable as he looked an unlucky loser (an understatement!) when finishing third in Royal Ascot’s Duke Of Edinburgh Handicap last time after being badly hampered by the winner Kinema. Given he’s run well over track and trip previously, I’d expect him to reverse form with the Ascot second Elite Army.

However, MOUNT LOGAN also likes it here and, indeed, Roger Varian’s charge is unbeaten in three runs at the track, most recently when landing a Listed contest over this trip in May. He’s since finished a respectable fourth behind Dartmouth in the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes and is looking better than ever at the age of five. His trainer confirmed him in “very good form” in a Stable Tour only last week and the bit of rain that was around yesterday won’t compromise his chances one bit as all of his five wins have come on ground no faster than good, though I’d be happy to support on ‘good to firm’ too. At a best-priced 7/2 with Hills, he’ll be carrying my money.
