Very frustrating day on Wednesday, with the days only bet The Grey Gatsby a desperately unlucky loser in Prince Of Wales Stakes, failing by short head .With anything like clear run would clearly won the race .Small profit on the race , though no consolation when you miss out on 13-2 winner.

MIZZOU :Progressive sort ,winning 4 out 6 .Shown big improvement since stepping up in trip ,including winning G3 Sagaro Stakes over 2 miles at Ascot last time ,beating Vent De Force by 2 lenghs .Should be suited by this longer trip and ground conditions will suit .
TRIP TO PARIS : Been in great form this season in handicap company ,landing hatrick in Chester Cup in May off mark 95 .Finished creditable second in G3 Henry 11 stakes at Sandown last time .This longer trip shouldn't be problem,though has to reverse form with Vent De Force.
