As usual, these sprints are very competitive.
I am concerned about Merhoob here, he won well over C&D last time out, but he would need to step up again to be in with a chance, saying that he will like the ground, we know he likes the track. He is up 6lb though since his last win. It was 7 days ago and looking at his stats where he runs within 10 days, then its 2, 9, 1, 3, 5, 11, 1. I fear he might be vulnerable, but the system likes him.
Caspian Prince is getting on a bit now, and hasnt shown much for his new yard. His last turf win though came on this ground in July last year winning a Group 2, he is 4lb lower than that win, so he could if he wants to could get back to winning ways. And he hasn't encountered this ground since then.
El Hombre is a big price, and is only 1lb higher than his last win. He is only a 4yo, so could be improving with age
Hopefully, the winner will come from the ones named above, its a tough race, and a big field where lukc plays a big part. I will stick with the system this time
My Selection: Merhoob 16/1
