Betting Tip: Harrison @ 9/1 with bet365

A wide open Group 3 and I wouldn’t care to rule out even rank outsider Goldmember, who ran a respectable sixth in the Bahrain Trophy last time and is the type to keep on improving with racing. The 25/1 on offer at bet365 demands a small each-way wager, but the bigger bet is going on HARRISON at 9/1 with the same firm.

Mick Channon’s runner hasn’t quite lived up to expectations since finishing third in a hot handicap at Sandown on his reappearance, finishing well beaten in the Dante Stakes on his next start and not taking up any of his Classic entries (he was in both the English and Irish Derbys). However, he’s run respectable races on his last two starts, finishing third of 16 at Royal Ascot and third again in the aforementioned Newmarket race, and the suspicion is we’ve yet to see the best of him. Back in May, his trainer described him as a “big baby” and “as good a horse as I’ve had since Youmzain”. That’s some compliment and I’m hopeful that fast ground and the return to the scene of his maiden win last October can allow him to start showing his full potential.
