Betting Tip: Log Out Island @ 11/4 with betvictor

At around 12/1 bar the pair, it’s hard to get away from the Richard Hannon-trained duo of King Of Rooks and LOG OUT ISLAND, the selection and mount of William Buick. The former is odds-on across the board after recording scintillating victories on his last two starts and will be ridden by Frankie Dettori, while his stablemate is a best-priced 3/1 after winning over track and trip on his debut in late April.

Apart from their trainer they have another thing in common in that they both had Tuesday’s Coventry Stakes winner Buratino behind when winning last time. That horse has improved in leaps and bounds since and can now lay claim to be the best and most exciting juvenile around, so it’s safe to say the form has been well and truly franked. For the record King Of Rooks beat him five lengths, while Log Out Island had a further half length advantage.

Strictly on form there won’t be much between them here, yet the odds don’t reflect that. Another thing in Log Out Island’s favour is that he is proven on the track, whereas his stablemate was beaten over 5f here on his debut and appreciated stepping up to 6f when winning his next start at Newbury. He dropped back a furlong to win at Sandown last time but that’s a stiff track and the selection may just have more pace.

Of the rest, you’ve got to respect Charlie Hills’ Nottingham winner Shanghai Glory. The form of his debut win is working out well and his trainer is in far better form now after a slow start to the season. He could muscle his way into the frame.
