I was going to back sphenpyta (or how ever you spell it) but the more I think about the race the more inclined I am to back Our Smoking Joe. I think he can outstay the favourite in what should be a good day of racing. I envy you Oaksnaf.
Yeah Our Smoking Joe is looking a great chance given that it is raining outside my window at the moment. Although the track was pretty hard during the week, so whether it rains enough overnight to give the track a bit more give will remain the question.
One thing of notice is that the Internationals have always complained that the hard tracks subject their top line horses to poor performances. So maybe..... they might just win something.
