As ever with selling races some horses appear to be chucked in at the ratings and that's certainly the case with Sophie's Beau but the selection has to be BOLD RING who is certainly the form horse in the race. He gets a short head verdict over Piazza San Pietro. The selection's latest second to Rough Rock reads very well in the context of this race. Rough Rock has looked a real improver this year and even though Bold Ring is out at the weights he should go well. Kieren Fallon is a very eye catching jockey booking on Andy Haynes' horse. This son of Compton Place hasn't been in great form lately but his stable do very well in this grade and he must be respected accordingly. Sophie's Beau is best in at the weights but doesn't look the most straight forward of horses so we'll return to Bold Ring for the win.
