Selection Reasoning:

Trainer Mark Johnston has his string running well and runs both Aquarium and Persian Moon in this mile and a half handicap. It was a close call but I am giving Aquarium another go at winning a mile and a half race following a below par run at the Epsom Derby meeting. Aquarium is very well drawn in stall 4 and well treated on a mark of 100. Twice raced at Goodwood he met all sorts of traffic issues behind Fayez in a 10f handicap before running a good race at Listed level over 1m4f. The drying ground should help regarding this trip as will this flat course.

Current Odds: 

 14/1 Bet365 4 places else 12/1 generally look for 5 places, use BOG bookies

Selection Reasoning:

Dark Vision has slipped down the weights to a rating of 103 having started off this season rated 111. He won a Group 2 at the Goodwood festival as a two year old and is talented on a going day. We backed him at Sandown in a listed race earlier this season in the listed Heron Stakes. That race has worked out very well with the winner a Group 1 horse. Dark Vision ran well for James Doyle behind Walkinthesand at the Newmarket July meeting so it’s a positive that James is booked to ride. He has a good draw in stall 3 and will love this easy mile on fast ground.
