iBet: Gosden’s The Fugue each way value in the Eclipse
Sandown, Coral Eclipse, 3.50pm
Back The Fugue each way at 4/1
Back either team to win by less than 7.5 points in the final Lions Test at 2.1 with Betfair’s Tri Bet market
Al Kazeem, Mukhadram and The Fugue lock horns again tomorrow after their tussle in the Prince Of Wales Stakes Royal Ascot. Roger Charlton’s horse Al Kazeem won the day fair and square that day, coming late to grab the spoils, and is entitled to go off the 7/4 favourite. However, Mukhadram (7/1 tomorrow), who cut out the running that day broke clear in the straight for a while and stayed on well, continues to improve and it’s certainly no foregone conclusion that the favourite will confirm the form.
We returned a profit in the Prince of Wales by backing The Fugue each way – she finished third at 13/2, finishing strongly – and once again I think that it’s John Gosden’s filly that offers the value at the prices. You can back The Fugue at 4/1, so if she makes the top three we will get our money back. And I think that she has a chance of winning.
It was The Fugue’s first race of 2013 and the other two had the edge on fitness. She came from a long way back that day, and it is looking like she will get here preferred sound surface tomorrow. According to Oddschecker she was matched at 80/1 for this on Betfair in May. I think you might get a bit bigger than the currently available 4/1 if you take the SP.
Warren Gatland’s decision to drop Brian O’Driscoll from the squad and bring in another six players for the final Lions Test tomorrow morning will go down and brave brilliance, or crass stupidity. Ibet won last weekend by betting on another close match, and I see no reason to desert a winning formula.
