What are the highest ideas for the large race?
Common readers of my Solar column are sitting on two ante-publish vouchers within the race at double determine odds, specifically Native River (12-1) and Our Duke (sixteen-1) and nothing that has occurred this week will change my thoughts!
Each are robust stayers, and whereas Native River is a greater jumper on paper, Our Duke is properly able to slicing out errors.
I discover it onerous to consider that no less than one among them gained't make the body, probably each.
Native River is recent after only one run this season, whereas Our Duke has received higher with every run for Jessica Harrington since points earlier within the marketing campaign. Fingers crossed.
