WORK WATCHER - York 5.35 1 Mutadaffeq @ 25/1 (33/1 at 7.30am with PP/BV) / 2 Okool @ 9/1 (Sky go odds to 5th) 1/2 point e/w each
I think that the market leaders ZEELANDER and REVEREND JACOBS look solid if little value. I would suggest you have a small
reverse forecast on them to cover the main each way tips and include them in a Tricast Perm with the selections. I do though think
there is some real each way value with Odds to 4th everywhere and to 5th place with SkyBet - so use them if you can.
MUTADAFFEQ looks way over priced to me at 25/1 let alone some early 33/1. I think that will be gobbled up. O'Meara has started
this season better than last and now seems settled in to his long-term Training base. It is easy to forget how quickly he has built
in the last 4-5 seasons and some correction and flat spot was inevitable. He delivers winners here and although his middle distance
horses have not fired so well in the past 2 seasons, MUTADAFFEQ looks one that could run well at big odds. It has form at the trip;
unlike many in the race and will have come on for a very good seasonal debut. lt is back to its last win mark too and just looks too
good to ignore here. I looked at a few others with proven form at the trip and think JE SUIS CHARLIE and REGAL MIRAGE will
run very well, the former may just need to run and the latter might just find a penalty and firmer ground a bit too much.
In OKOOL though we have a proven stayer, has a decent record fresh and running off a very nice mark and very consistent and
looks the type to follow in this type of race all summer, and at 9/1, will surely be very competitive.
