Betting Tip: @ 7/2 with coral

William Haggas’ STORM THE STARS sets a clear form standard courtesy of his placed efforts in two Derbys and this Group 2 is a good opportunity to get his head back in front. He’s already had seven races this season, the last three at the highest level, and his well beaten third at Longchamp last time could be construed as a sign he’s feeling the effects. However, his trainer effectively poured cold water on that theory in an excellent interview in this week’s Racing Post, saying the horse did not enjoy inactivity and doesn’t need a break.

He will have to be near his best, mind, to cope with Richard Hannon’s Tashar, who arrives here unbeaten after two stats – a maiden and a Goodwood handicap last time. This is obviously a huge step up in class, but connections clearly think he’s up to the task, having paid the supplementary fee, and he wouldn’t be the first winner of this race to make a successful transition from handicaps. However, I’m going to stick with the selection at Sky Bet’s 7/2 and not least for the fact his stable can do little wrong right now.
