First Nation will really appreciate stepping back up to 1m4f and the better ground he’ll encounter here. We’ve been waiting for him to run on decent ground ever since his excellent 2nd at Royal Ascot. Whilst he’s acquitted himself very well on softer ground than he’d like, an improved run is expected today and he’s got a cracking chance.
Eynhallow has always looked like this step up in trip will suit, as will the bigger field and stronger pace. He’s won 2 nice handicaps and run well in defeat when the pace of the race hasn’t suited. He’s very much over-priced and a big run can be expected.
