Betting

Forecast

Luis Fernandez (11/4), Optimum Time (3/1), Simpson (9/2), Character Witness (8/1), Rainbow Jazz (11/1), Rum Runner (12/1), Choosey (16/1), Mysaan (20/1), Bombastic (25/1), He's Our Star (25/1), Wiltons (50/1), Jazz Affair (66/1), Epsom Bounty (66/1), Rio Santos (100/1)

Verdict

Optimum Time carries a winners penalty, but faces a much more realistic assignment than in the Listed Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot, and is one of a few runners to have the benefit of experience against some likely rather late maturing types. LUIZ FERNANDEZ is another with experience, and was probably denied the opportunity to aim higher after his Redcar success due to the enforced stable shutdown for Kevin Ryan. Whilst that was a narrow victory, the race has worked out well and the form is rock-solid, and he presumably makes the journey South from Yorkshire in order to gain valuable course experience prior to the Super Sales Sprint later in July.
