15:30 York– Simple Verse (BEST ODDS 9/2 with Coral)
Simple Verse wasn’t far away when third in a Group 2 last time out and his mark remains unchanged after that effort. He’s a distance winner and the only question mark I’d have about him would be how he is going to take to the softer ground. The sane could be said for the first two in the betting so therefore I think there’s a bit of value about this horse. That third place looks even better because the horse was stepping up in trip for that race. Simple Verse will be back into his comfort zone in terms of distance and I think this classy sort will go very close today.
