Ballymac Ruso is the main danger IMO. Tissue prices have Ballymac Ruso fav as he has played such a blinder through the heats and his consistency deserves nothing less. However Fear Zafonic has finally got his favoured red jacket by the rails. Although this is statistically disastrous box for Derby finalists he has been inconvenienced throughout the competition by not being in T1. Tonight he can make it pay and I think as the evening wears on and people think on Charlie Lister’s ability to get his dogs peaking and pinging on the big nights, he might start favourite.
Ballymac Ruso, drawn next door in T2, also has ferocious early pace but as he is predicted to take the middle line my money is on Fear Zafonic to hug the rails, lead up to the first and then nothing should catch him…
Of course if it was always that straightforward I would be blogging this from a yacht somewhere so we won’t really know until 10.12 tonight, but I am happy to nail my red jacket to the mast now 🙂
