6:15 Salisbury - Quickthorn
Quickthorn for me in this one. Quite a few people will be looking towards Berkshire Rocco for Andrew Balding, but I like this Hughie Morrison runner.
A fantastic second in the Ebor action a couple of weeks ago at York, I was so impressed that day, but also before that too.
Three wins from six if you want to get 'general' about the form, this gelding won the Duke Of Edinburgh at Royal Ascot, and that was when shaking off a 13lb penalty after winning at Haydock before that too.
Quickthorn is an absolute monster and I think really underrated generally, and perhaps in this race too.
Quickthorn is not just my favourite bet of Friday, Quickthorn is my favourite bet of the week by a mile.
