Leicester Tip: George Villiers

Yard have won last two renewals of this race and promising colt shaped well on debut at Sandown. Best in race after adjusting for pace.

John Gosden has won the last two renewals of this race and he is well represented again by George Villiers in the 4.00 Leicester.

It’s been 123-days since his last run so it’s unlikely he’s had a trouble free summer but on the positive side he’ll have done plenty of growing. On debut at Sandown he shaped with plenty of promise. He was green and got too far back in a steadily run race but he was the fastest closer by 0.21s and earned an adjusted speed rating of 79.

When adjusting for pace he was the best horse in the race and he can confirm that but losing his maiden tag.
