Betting Tip: @ Spanish City @ 11/4 with boyle

Most of these have plenty of miles on the clock whereas the well-bred SPANISH CITY is just ten races into his career and the lightly-raced five-year-old may not be finished improving yet. After winning on his reappearance at Newcastle in May, he was far from disgraced in the ultra competitive Victoria Cup, finishing sixth of the 17 runners, less than two lengths behind the winner. He then did well to make the most of a drop in grade at Doncaster last time, coming round runners to deliver his challenge and lead close home, and he’s only gone up 3lb for that. Clearly at home over this his intermediate trip and with his stable continuing in flying form (11-35 in the last fortnight, he’s very much the one they all have to beat with Ryan Moore doing the steering.

Get Knotted is disputing second favouritism in most lists but he wouldn’t want the ground this quick and a bigger threat to the selection may come from The Feathered Nest, who has been in good form at Chester the last twice and may do even better back at a galloping track.
