Betting Tip: Lockheed @ 9/2 with bet365

Bookmakers are taking no chances with Best Of Days after he demolished a decent field at Sandown on his debut, with no bigger than 5/4 on offer. The fifth has won since to boost the form and Hugo Palmer’s charge, who has Group 2 entries later in the season, is the one they all have to beat. But his presence ensures we can get a good price on the rest and the majority of his rivals can boast more experience. They include Aidan O’Brien’s Courage Under Fire who has yet to get his head in front after four starts, but arguably brings the best form to the table, courtesy of his second (albeit four-lengths adrift) behind stablemate and top-class Caravaggio in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes last time.

However, a narrow vote goes to William Haggas’ LOCKHEED, who confirmed the promise he showed on his Ascot debut when relinquishing his maiden tag at Goodwood (7f) and has been working very well at home since by all accounts. He needs to come on again to land this but the stable juveniles do tend to improve with racing and Haggas has a good record in this contest. Frankie Dettori takes over from Ryan Moore and the Italian has been making hay on the stable runners in 2016, with five of his 13 rides (38%) obliging and he’s 3-3 on the juvenile representatives. Take bet365’s 9/2.
