Betting Tip: @ Sergei Prokofiev @ 10/1 with betfair

Punters are faced with another short-priced favourite in Aidan O’Brien’s Ten Sovereigns, who has been put in at odds-on to beat seven rivals, including stablemate SERGEI PROKOFIEV. That’s understandable as the son of No Nay Never has looked the business in winning both his starts, both over this trip at the Curragh and a Group 3 last time. In doing so, however, he only beat a horse that was even further behind him in a maiden a week previously and while he still belongs in the ‘could be anything bracket’, I’m not going to back him at best odds of 4/6 to find out.

Sergei Prokofiev, on the other hand, looks a shade a value at 10/1 as he can be forgiven a poor run last time when his stable was out of form and had looked smart previously, including when third behind Calyx in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes. With the edge in experience after five runs and with the drying ground very much in his favour, he surely has a better chance than his odds suggest, with enough runners (eight) for an each-way bet should you wish to play safe.
