B365 Bunbury Cup (Heritage Handicap)

A very exciting day for us, as the ENIGMA Syndicates have a stake in Ventura Tormenta who takes his chance in the Superlative Stakes today, provided the ground dries up to somewhere around goodish. We think he'll appreciate the extra furlong.

These are the days we dream about. Through ENIGMA, his owners paid just £251 per share. 

The Bunbury Cup

I've been looking at CARDSHARP all week. He has a really good course record, 7fl is his trip and he's sure to go off a nice price.

The selection won a Group 2 here as a juvenile and was only beaten 1 length in this race as a 3-y-o, carrying 8lbs more. He's still only 5-y-o now and has worked down to a very attractive mark.

Poor recent form means nothing for an older Johnson handicapper. Cardsharp's form was poor coming into the race 2 years ago when he 4th and there were clear signs of revival early season this year. 

There is more than a whiff of him being lined up by Mark Johnston today. James Doyle rode all his past good races here and he's back on board today. 

Cardsharp has won on good and gd-sft before. I also tend to like stalls 10+ in this race, and the other Johnston runners are drawn low. 

It will be no surprise at all if he heavily outruns his price today, which is somewhere up around 22's.
