Betting Tip: @ Eqtidaar @ 7/2 with bet365

Aidan O’Brien’s Murillo looks a big player on last year’s Coventry Stakes third and he showed he had trained on when running well for a long way in the 2000 Guineas on his return, only fading late on into ninth.

He’s not opposed lightly but his main market rival here, EQTIDAAR, was a real eye-catcher on his reappearance in a Group 3 at Ascot and Sir Michael Stoute’s charge gets the vote. A good winner on his debut last August before finishing fourth behind Invincible Army, he refused to settle in the first third of the race and that really should have put paid to his chances. But on the contrary, he came through to lead inside the final two furlongs and stayed on well to beat all bar his old rival, who is now amongst the favourites for the Commonwealth Cup. He would surely have gone mighty close had he settled better and with further improvement almost a given, he can go one better here and reward backers at bet365’s 7/2.

In anticipation of a win, or at least a big run, it’s also worth considering having a little on him now for that Royal Ascot Group a sprint with 33/1 available at Betfred.
