Commanding was very impressive on his 2nd start when stepping up to this trip and bolting up on the dirt last time. He looked like he’d taken a big step forward from his debut, travelling very strongly and pulling away from the field. With proven form on this surface, he’s a big player, although stall 13 doesn’t help. The Godolphin runners, First View, Laser Show and Lost In Time all merit respect without looking unbeatable and therefore even from a slightly tricky stall 13, Commanding looks the one to beat and at around 5/1 you can play safe each way.
Advised Bet: Commanding Each Way – generally 6/1 or 11/2.
