The quirky but talented HOUSE OF KINGS is fancied to take the bet365 Esher Cup wearing blinkers for the first time.
The headgear is probably needed judged by the way the son of Camelot ran around under pressure last season, but his form reads well, in particular a defeat of subsequent winner Global Hero at Leicester in September when he showed a fine turn of foot to win decisively.
Third-placed Attainment (beaten two-and-a-half lengths) is now rated 83 and the fourth, Reesh, 85 suggesting that a mark of 86 is far from punitive with the additional promise that the headgear will encourage a more professional attitude.
In the bet365 Mile, I can't resist rowing in again with the admirable OH THIS IS US who did us a good turn at Lingfield last Friday.
This is a step up in class, and the lack of pace is a concern, but Richard Hannon's charge could well have a fitness advantage over most of his rivals and, considering he is rated only 4lb and 3lb below last year's winner Addeybb and Beat The Bank respectively, and superior to the likely favourite Sharja Bridge (who had a straightforward task at Doncaster last month), he looks good value.
