Short, high quality field.  Last year's Arc winner looks like a value at 12-1.  The top 3 are logical.  Frankie back up for the Gosdens on Emily Upjohn.  Trial separation lasted, what, hours or days?  LOL  Mishriff, another Gosden trainee, looked really good in the Coral Eclipse - ran the best race, IMO.  Frankel's son, Westover will go to post as the fav.

If Torquator Tasso's odds hold up I will take a flyer even though it seems heavy going would be preferred.  No way he should be 12-1.

Decent clip.

He did.  Smartly taken back though.  Savvy ride.

Good call.   Ended up at 16-1, that is the kind of horse I put a largish PLACE wager on.  :)   

I love 2nd-horse-longshots.  They often come in at OP that way and place pays better than the winners many times.
