18:50 Windsor – Parnassian (BEST ODDS 16/1 with SkyBet)
I think that there is some great each-way value in this race, in the form of Parnassian. SkyBet are currently offering five places for this handicap, which is one place more than usual. This horse stepped up to seven furlongs last time out, and ended the race a beaten favourite. That suggests to me that his best trip is six furlongs. He returns to that distance today for a new yard. This isn’t too big of a step up in class than Parnassian’s last win, which came over course and distance. He’s only three pounds higher than he was that day, so I think that 16/1 is a big price. He’s still relatively lightly raced and he’ll be more than happy to let other horses lead in this one. He usually waits until the last furlong or so to make his mark, and this doesn’t look the strongest handicap in the world. I think he’s got a great chance at a big price.
