Betting Tip: Cape Speed @ 9/2 with betvictor

Roger Varian’s Haalick has been put in as a short-priced favourite for the finale and and that’s understandable as he was very impressive when winning over 7f here on his return, putting the race to bed in a matter of strides. He’s clearly improving at the right time of year and it would be no surprise if we were to end up contesting better races later this season. But the current 2/1 is no giveaway as he did enjoy the run of a rough race last time and I just wonder whether he will quite so effective over this longer trip, given the turn of foot he showed.

So, I’m going to take him on and the Mark Johnston-trained 2000 Guineas entry CAPE SPEED makes most appeal of the rest. He too looks to be improving fast judging on recent starts and was completing a hat-trick on the all-weather when scoring over a mile at Kempton last time, pulling clear under top weight from a last-time-out winner. A staying on winner over 7f on his previous start, he looks the type to keep finding for pressure – like many of his stablemates – and certainly won’t be found wanting if this race develops into a scrap.
