Betting Tip: Journey @ 15/8 with coral

John Gosden landed a double on the Knavesmire on Wednesday, continuing his good start to the season, and he can be on the mark here too with JOURNEY. She is the top-rated runner in the field courtesy of her second in a Group 1 at Ascot’s Champions’ Day last October (1m4f, good to soft), when she was just denied by St Leger winner Simple Verse, and that run also proved her versatility over the ground. She clearly stays 1m4f but seems just as effective over this shorter trip and I’d expect Frankie Dettori to give her a positive ride to make use of her stamina.

The market has been a solid recent guide with the last nine winners all returned at 9/2 or shorter, including five winning favourites, so it could pay not to look past the selection and her two closest market rivals, Beautiful Romance and Lady Of DubaiBetVictor go 2/1, 4/1 and 9/2 on the trio respectively. Of that pair, Lady Of Dubai may given her most to do. Trained by Luca Cumani at the time of finishing third in last season’s Oaks, she has joined Roger Varian for 2016 and could do even better with another year on her back. Her new stable has made a solid start to the season.
