Square De Luynes has been very strongly backed to hand Niels Petersen a sixth victory in this Invitational and he clearly brings some strong form into the race. Pat Cosgrace was in the saddle as the favourite sealed an emphatic eight-length triumph from the front over nine furlongs last time out. Stepping back up to a mile-and-a-half will suit and Frankie Dettori’s deputy, Rab Havlin has been booked to take the ride.
I, however, quite fancy taking the market leader on here, as I’m not sure he’s beaten anything of note during his two victories so far. Crowned Eagle looks to have a decent chance for Marco Botti, but I prefer the chances of Danish-based KING DAVID (NAP), who looks massively overpriced at 16/1.
King David kicked off his season by winning a Listed prize, before finishing second in a Group Three here at Bro Park, where his late charge from the rear came up just a length short. Marc Stott’s charge didn’t dwell on that defeat, powering home under a well-timed drive by Oliver Wilson to win the Preis von Lotto Hamburg.
Stott then decided to take King David to France, where he came up against many high-quality middle-distance horses. Although the Danish raider could only pass the post fifth, considering he was in with the likes of Olmedo, Mountain Angel and Trais Flours, a five-length defeat on soft ground which didn’t suit wasn’t a bad result at all.
This will be King David’s first start over a mile-and-a-half, but he’s a half-brother to two successful two-milers in Graceland and Teodash, so there’s enough in his breeding to suggest he could improve with the step up in distance. A wide draw isn’t really a negative for a horse who likes to be held up and I wouldn’t be surprised to see King David pick off his rivals in the final furlong. 8/1 is an excellent price for an each-way bet.
