Betting Tip: @ Gabr each-way @ 18/1 with bet365

Not a particularly strong renewal and that bookmakers have settled on John Gosden’s Without Parole as favourite, despite the fact he hasn’t won above Listed level, tells you that. He’s all about potential and while only workmanlike when landing the Heron Stakes last time, the ground was softer than ideal and he had suffered an interrupted preparation. Even so, he has got to find a stone in improvement to trouble some of these and he’s not for me at the forecast odds.

Classic form is in evidence elsewhere and Tip Two Win, who only found Saxon Warrior too good in the 2000 Guineas, and Romanised, who sprung a 25/1 surprise in the Irish equivalent, have to be seriously considered. Godolphin’s Wootton is another with claims having failed to show his true colours in the French 2000 Guineas last night time, when missing the break and ruining his chance by failing to settle.

However, it’s worth looking for something at a bigger price in such an open race and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if GABR proved up to the task. Sir Michael Stoute’s charge showed he was a talented miler when fifth in last season’s Racing Post Trophy and he looked to have done well from two to three when reappearing in the Sandown race won by Without Parole, going down by less than a length. He gave the impression that he would benefit significantly for that outing and his trainer has a fantastic record with progressive three-year-olds like him. At 18/1 with bet365, he looks cracking each-way value.
