    Cougar Mountain tipped for bet365 Mile glory at Sandown Park on Friday

    Sandown Park's two-day jamboree of racing will see the Flat stars take centre stage on Friday afternoon, and the feature race of the day is the Group 2 bet365 Mile, which will see a classy field of ten runners head to the eight-furlong start, and it is a real head-scratcher for punters, as the bookmakers go 9/2 the field about this race won 12 months ago by the Richard Hannon-trained Toormore.

    • Richard Hannon stable has trained 8 of last 13 winners (Kool Kompany)
    • Three of the last five winners have been aged six
    • David O'Meara has trained 2 of last 5 winners (Mondialiste)

    Tips Cougar Mountain to win    Best Bet @ 15 / 2  

    Kool Kompany Aims To Continue Hannon Stable's Fine Record

    Eight of the last 13 renewals of the bet365 Mile have been won by the Richard Hannon yard, and with the aforementioned Toormore landing the prize for Richard Hannon Jr last year then he will hope to retain his crown with Kool Kompany, who has been installed as the 9/2 favourite with Ladbrokes, and will head to Sandown fresh from a Listed win at Doncaster on the first day of April.

    He beat Stormy Antarctic by a short-head that day, and is sure to strip fitter for his first outing of the season, and with this one-mile trip sure to play to his strengths then he is a worthy market leader, but the former Craven winner has often found Group company a little too hot for him, and he could be worth taking on with a classier rival.

    Cougar Mountain To Sparkle At Sandown

    Aidan O'Brien's Cougar Mountain was a Group 2 winner of the Joel Stakes last season, and the Ballydoyle raider is one that can often blow hot and cold, but at 15/2 with Ladbrokes he could be worth taking a chance on, as at his best he could well be the classiest horse in this fascinating renewal.

    He will carry a 3lb penalty for that aforementioned Group 2 win, but if Ryan Moore can hold him off the pace in the early stages, and get a tune out of him in the final couple of furlongs then he could well sprint away from his rivals to land this coveted prize.

    Best Of The Rest

    Roger Varian's Dawn Of Hope could only finish third to Kool Kompany in that Doncaster Listed event earlier in the month, but she has the potential to improve for that Town Moor outing, and at 11/2 with Coral is worthy of a mention, while Mondialiste has top-class Group 1 wins on his CV, but they have been abroad, so may struggle to repeat those on British soil, and at 6/1 with BetVictor is a little skinny.

    Of the others, Sovereign Debt (8/1) was a winner at Lingfield Park last time out, but this will be a lot tougher, with Jallota (10/1) and Mitchum Swagger (12/1) adding more depth to a race that can head back across the Irish Sea and to the Aidan O'Brien-trained Cougar Mountain, who can kick off his campaign with a win.
