Betting Tip: Rusumaat @ 5/1 with bet365

This is tough but Mark Johnston’s RUSUMAAT may well the answer as his form stacks up well and he seems best over this trip on fast ground, which can’t be said about several of his rivals. Since making his debut on the all-weather back in April, he’s run five times on turf, winning twice, with his only bad run coming when down the field in Royal Ascot’s Coventry Stakes, which is generally one of the hottest juvenile races of the entire season. His best run came in defeat last time out at Goodwood where he found only Final Reckoning a quarter length too good. That horse has Group 1 entries later in the season as does the third Top Score, so the form looks strong. The only real niggle is his trainer’s record on the Knavesmire and with two-year-olds in particular – a very modest 5-93 (5%) since 2012. However, I’m not going to let that put me off and by way of compensation he’s dropped lucky with the draw in stall 14 if recent results are a guide – all of the last seven winners were drawn 13 or higher. Take bet365’s 5/1.

He’s preferred to stablemate Miss Infinity, who landed a 7f Listed contest in France last time, and the top-rated runner Rainbow Mist, who would have been the selection but for the fact she prefers some juice in the ground.
