I am on one for the weekend good and early as quite frankly I can't believe carpet 3-1 is about, this one will surely be shorter by Saturday afternoon.
Best bet for the Group Three Group Three John Of Gaunt StakesI tipped Safe Voyage in the G.1 Lockinge Stakes over a mile at Newbury a fortnight ago, as much for the going conditions as anything – it went horribly wrong. Back to seven furlongs for the Group Three John Of Gaunt Stakes at 3.30 the eight-year-old is back at a trip he loves, on going that suits and in much calmer waters class wise; he does have a penalty to carry but it’s only 5lb. They are likely to get a bit more rain yet on Friday up there and it’s pretty dull forecast for Saturday so the ground shouldn't dry our too much. His track and trip record reads four wins and a second from five starts, including winning this in 2019. Those loses from 14-days ago were only lent Mr Bookmaker, get on the gelding for this weekend at 3-1 - it’s a safe bet!
