There is only one international runner left this time and that is the French Horse Iresene who is around 33/1 in the the international markets.

The very short priced favourite is Equinox who is rated the top horse in the world.  He will be partnered as usual by Christophe Lemaire and the trainer Kimura-sensei was very positive when talking with our colleagues yesterday.

The track should be fast which will suit him. 

The main danger is seen in to be Liberty Island, the triple crown winning 3yo daughter of Duramente out of the Aussie mare Yankee Rose.

She has oodles of talent but this is her first time against the older horses.  She will have a weight advantage and is on 5/2 in the UK and 4.7 locally.

The market really opens up after that with Do Deuce and Titleholder both on 17.0, William Buick's mount Stars on Earth on 21.4 and Joao Moreira rides Danon Beluga who we may put in as a third pick on 29.2. 

There could be some fortunes made if a roughie gets up but all signs are pointing to the top two and the favourite in particular.
