SIR BUSKER can call the tune in the Unibet Golden Mile.
The draw is important in this big-field contest with nine of the past ten winners coming from a single-figure stall.
On that score, we can put a line through Blown By Wind, Montatham, Afaak, Zwayyan, Fox Premier and Baltic Baron who are all too wide according to the stats.
A previous win over the mile distance comes in handy which is a big negative for Urban Icon, Cardsharp, Willie John and Prompting.
Most winners of this in recent years have had at least 8st 13lb on their back. That means Almufti and Cliffs Of Capri come up a little short on that score.
That reduces them to a shortlist of three — Bless Him, Vale Of Kent and Sir Busker.
They are all each-way prices but SIR BUSKER looks the one to beat given his excellent form this season.
He was a good winner the last time he tackled this trip in the Silver Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot.
He ran at Newmarket last time when second in a hot race and that’s another plus on the trends front.
