What's not to like about Main Sequence?

Not my area of expertise but I thought I would cast my eye over the Derby runners today for a small interest.

The one thing that immediately struck me is how a horse that is yet to go beyond 8f is an odds on favourite. As impressive as Camelot has been, going in to the unknown in having to run 33% further than previous tests doesn't strike me as a value bet. I am sure that last years winner and the breeding has some bearing on the current price.

Equally astounding is that we have a horse in the race yet to be beaten from four starts, yet to be fully stretched and has won over 12 furlongs.

It may have been a quirk of fate that drove the Lingfield Derby Trial on to the Polytrack and I personally get very annoyed at the constant derogatory remarks made about All Weather racing for obvious reasons, but boy will I be chuckling if Main Sequence can land today's Derby after coming of the All Weather.


A little each way at 10's, that where my money is going!
