I don’t go in for coincidence betting as a rule but Neymar (they must have asked the striker’s permission to use the name, surely?!) would be a very apt winner on the same night as the Champions League final, for which Barcelona are red-hot favourites. Even more so if the player in question scores and I bet a fair few punters will be doubling up on his namesake. The horse is not without a chance after finishing third at Thirsk last time, although it’s a worry he looked a tad one-paced on that occasion and is now dropping back in trip. He’s reluctantly swerved in favour of AVENUE OF DREAMS, who cost 270,000 guineas as a yearling and is making his racecourse bow for Charlie Appleby. He doesn’t have many runners at the track (0-6 since 2010), but he does particularly well in three-year-old maidens like this one (23% strike rate) and plenty seem to win at the first time of asking. The booking of Graham Lee catches the eye and his mount wouldn’t have to be anything too special to land this.
