13:20 Leicester – Arthenus (BEST ODDS 8/1 with betfair)
Arthenus takes a big step down in class today after tackling a Group 3 race at a big price last time out. I think he’ll be a real threat at the mark he is on at this level, so I’m surprised to see him available at such a big price for this one. He’s not top weight for this one, but I’d certainly prefer him over the two horses with a higher mark in this field. He’s won multiple times over good to soft ground, so that shouldn’t be a worry and I can certainly seem him staying the trip here too. If there are as many as eight runners in the field when this one goes off, I’d certainly suggest backing him each-way.
