PYTHEAS is the form pick to break his maiden tag at the expense of Sir Pitt and Burnett. The selection has run consistently well all year finishing second on two occasions. She has kept improving with experience and if she can recapture her form she will difficult to oppose. Newcomer Sir Pitt is well bred and comes from a yard with a decent strike rate with their debutants. She is sure to have been well prepared and the market will be the best guide to her chances. Burnett is another newcomer to note coming from the Godolphin camp. He is another well bred individual so warrants plenty of respect. Pytheas has the best form on offer and with luck in running she is sure to give her supporters a good run for their money.
