Racing: Ante-Post update - Moiava en vogue as Bionic defects
Tuesday 06 April 1999
Mujahid remains the favourite for the 2,000 Guineas, although news from Newmarket suggests there may may be plenty of money in the next week for Enrique. Henry Cecil's colt is impressing in his work with the older Bold Fact. Killer Instinct and Ballet Master, Cecil's other 2,000 possibles, are also reportedly working well.
Daliapour, Luca Cumani's Derby candidate, has also been catching the eye at Newmarket and is another who can be expected to shorten in the betting, if only because he was touted as a good bet for the Derby in racing's trade press over Easter, a remark which also applies to Commander Collins and Dubai Millennium (2,000), Moiava (1,000) and Ebadiya (Oaks).
Glamis, winner of the Stanmore Stakes at Kempton, has shortened in the Derby betting.
Double Thriller remains the absurdly short-priced favourite for the Grand National. Bearing in mind that Rough Quest, following his superb second to Imperial Call in the 1996 Cheltenham Gold Cup which made him a a handicap snip for that year's National off 10st 7lb, started 7-1 on his big day, no one should rush in to take 9-2 about a horse which finished a tired 32 lengths fourth to See More Business - just 31/2 lengths in front of Addington Boy, who is 1lb better off on Saturday - in this year's renewal.
