Betting Tip: Alfajer @ 9/1 with bet365

William Haggas’ South African import Cold As Ice is much the best horse in the race – she is rated between 5lb and 35lb superior to her rivals – and wouldn’t have looked out of place in the much stronger Sprint. A dual Grade 2 winner, she looked unlucky not to win a qualifier over 6f here last time, having dwelt at the start and then been stuck at the back before finishing late into third, and a cleaner break here would make her very hard to beat.

However, she’ll need to be sharp from the gates given her wide draw in stall 10 and, with bookmakers going a stingy 4/6, I’d rather have a little each-way on Marco Botti’s ALFAJER. She finished a place in front of Cold As Ice when third at Wolverhampton two outings ago and didn’t enjoy as smooth a trip as Volunteer Point when a place behind that rival at Deauville last time. Her form figures over 7f here are ’12’, making all on the first occasion, and Andrea Atzeni might try similar tactics here from a plum draw in stall one.
