Caravaggio is sure to be top of many ‘banker’ lists ahead of Friday at Royal Ascot, yet it may pay to look elsewhere.
There’s no doubting his class and Aidan could hardly be more bullish about his chances, after a pleasing reappearance.
However, the same could be said about Harry Angel. He’s been heavily backed every time he’s set foot on the course, which suggests he obviously shows something at home, and his last performance was simply jaw-dropping.
He pulled hard when being just touched off by the reappearing Blue Point (giving him four pounds) on his seasonal reappearance and it would be no surprised to see the form reversed.
Godolphin now own the pair, after forking out a hefty some following Harry’s last visit to the track. He made all at Haydock, never seeing another rival, moving readily clear of Second Thought and Mubtasim, who since ran a stormer to finish third in the Jersey.
Harry’s Angel is a horse on the upgrade and at 7/2, he looks worth a small interest.
1pt win: Harry’s Angel (Commonwealth Cup) @ 7/2
