Harry Angel v Caravaggio - The Decider
The sprint division has been simply sensational in 2017 and we have one more treat ahead of us as the two stars of the summer clash.
Caravaggio came out on top when he beat Harry Angel to win the Commonwealth Cup at the Royal Meeting but since then, it is the latter who has kicked on and goes into this one as the favourite.
Since being beaten that day, Harry Angel has won the July Cup and the Sprint Cup Stakes at Haydock at the highest level to mark himself out as one of the best sprinters of recent times. The Godolphin horse has won Group 1 races on good to firm and heavy ground, and as such is rightly the favourite on Saturday at a price of 11/10 with William Hill.
Caravaggio (9/2), on the other hand, has failed to kick on from that famous Royal Ascot win and it will be fascinating if he can bounce back at the scene of his greatest success. He was well beaten by Harry Angel in the July Cup before finishing down the field in France, and although he won the Group 2 at the Curragh last time out, it is a big ask to beat an in-form Harry Angel.
Best of the Rest...
The Tin Man (10/1) is to be respected having won this race last season, and the Diamond Jubilee back in June, but his form has been poor since with Harry Angel beating him out of sight in both the July Cup and the Sprint Cup at Haydock.
Elsewhere, Tasleet is one to consider after he finished a distant 2nd in the Sprint Cup behind Harry Angel last time out and as such he comes into the each-way reckoning, whilst Librisa Breeze is a talented horse but doesn't look up to challenging the front two.
One horse who could well mix it with the big boys on a going day is the exciting Quiet Reflection who at times during his career has proven top class. A winner of the Commonwealth Cup and the Sprint Cup in 2016, the 4YO won a Group 3 on soft ground last time out in Naas and the conditions could well have fallen right for him at 13/2 with Hills.
Harry Angel has sprouted wings on his last two starts, and is clearly the best sprinter of his generation ahead of this final clash. Caravaggio has tailed off after early promise this season and has it all to do to turn it round with Harry Angel, whilst Quiet Reflection is the each-way play in the ground after coming back to form last time out.
