Betting Tip: Postponed @ 7/2 with bet365

Telescope was an impressive seven-length winner of this race 12 months ago before going on to chase home Taghrooda in the King George, and he’s no bigger than 5/4 for a repeat. He’ll certainly take some stopping if in the same rich vein of form and was back in the winners’ enclosure last time, albeit after beating seven vastly inferior rivals at odds of 8/13.

But he’s not unbeatable by any means and having been turned over at odds-on on his reappearance, I’m opposing him with the ever-improving POSTPONED. Luca Cumani’s colt ended last season by winning the Group 2 Great Voltigeur over today’s trip and while he’s been beaten in both starts this term, they were over shorter and he was just a neck and a short head behind Al Kazeem when third in a Group 1 last time. Back over his ideal trip and with the sounder surface in his favour, he looks a knocking good bet at 7/2.

Telescopes trainer Sir Michael Stoute also runs last year’s second Hillstar, who is making his seasonal reappearance and may need it, and Snow Sky, who finished well behind the selection in the Great Voltigeur. John Gosden’s Eagle Top is more closely matched with the Cumani’s runner on three-year-old form and he is greatly respected.
