Emmet Mullins knows the game and Planet Sport are punting that Crowns Major can be shunted into a place.
3.20 Newmarket - Crowns Major
Without the likes of Stradivarius, these high quality stayers' races are open contests and it can pay to stay away from the head of the betting in the 3.20 at Newmarket.
None of the top of the market such as Nayef Road and Eileendover are consistent performers and so the Irish raider Crowns Major comes into the reckoning.
Trained by the astute Emmet Mullins, handler of the Cheltenham favourite The Shunter, the versatile Crowns Major can stay all day and comes to HQ in good order after troubling the places in all of his seven starts.
The son of solid Japanese sire Daiwa Major, Crowns Major was the winner, on his penultimate start, of a lucrative one mile four furlong handicap at Galway.
Before that, the four year-old gelding had finished second on good to soft over two miles and half a furlong, again at Galway.
Jockey Jamie Spencer has just returned from a winning trip to Belmont Park with Yibir for a Group 1 and has the experience to deliver Crowns Major into at least a place.
The Crown could be sitting on top at the end of this long slog.
