Betting Tip: Escobar @ 5/4 with skybet

ESCOBAR may have beaten just three rivals when maintaining his unbeaten record at Newbury last time, but all would hold solid claims in this contest and Hugo Palmer’s charge should come on again as he ran green and looked far from the polished article. He’s a confident choice to pass this latest test before a a possible crack at the Group 1 Dewhurst.

If he flops there are plenty of contenders to take advantage, with Aidan O’Brien’s Whitecliffsofdover looking the main danger. He certainly looked the part when relinquishing his maiden certificate at Naas last month and he’s clearly well regarded judging by his Group 1 / Classic entries. Ryan Moore partners him for the first time but I still think he’ll have to play second fiddle to the Frankie Dettori-ridden favourite, who is a best-priced 5/4 with Sky Bet.
