Norfolk Stakes: Bakeel
Course and distance winner in a decent time and that is despite fluffing the start. Big, strong colt who should only improve with time but already looks up to winning this type of race.
Bakeel is a big price for the Norfolk given he won a trial over course and distance and that is despite ducking right out of the stalls. The time of his win was good and although the form isn’t flashy everything bare the last horse had won previously or since.
You only need to watch the video to see that Bakeel is a bull of a horse and should have plenty of improvement in him. Walbank was mightily impressive at York and I can easily see him winning but on speed ratings there’s not a huge amount between them and we have to take the value option.
