Very much a speculative bet here, Miyasaki at 66/1, my price being 16/1. I was tempted to rule him out even after making my book but he has a couple of things in his favour namely winning form at the distance and came 2nd in a Group 3 in July. His trainer is unknown to me but foreign is usually good for value if only because he is unknown to everyone else and avoided like the plague. I’m happy to take a chance here, with the field cutting up probably due to the going and a possibly muddling race as a result. Pricewise’s tip Fanunalter is one of the NRs which will further confuse things.

Without Miyasaki, the bet would be Marvo at 33/1, value price 9/1. Ladbrokes are a more cautious 20/1. An interesting little race at the end of the Flat season.

Hope the new html table makes things clearer :-)
Trainer Rune Haugen’s website:…/rune-haugen-using-science-to-train.html Won’t connect just at the moment but looks worth a check later.
Sporting Life comment: pressed leader over 5f, weakened over 1f out opened 100/1 touched 100/1

Beaten a long way. It will be interesting to see where he runs next; I would expect over longer distance.
