Impressive Twice Over

Real Madrid won big time but even their big wins will be only academic if Barcelona keep winning. In racing, Simon de Montfort tailed off in his race won by his stable-mate Monterosso. A disappointing result, and it will be interesting to hear from the connections what actually happened to the King Best colt. Musir was a game second behind Twice Over and was a good Place prediction. There are really two things that I can conclude at the end of this race; Musir is a pure miler and is best at 8-9 furlongs. He will have to stretch if he is to win the Dubai World Cup. Second, Twice Over couldn't have been more impressive with his comeback run, and is certainly a live contender for winning the DWC. I thought a couple of weeks ago that this race could not get out of the grasp of Mike de Kock with his duo of Bold Silvano and Musir, but Twice Over is making me think things over! Really exciting to say the least, and I hope that Buena Vista can show her mettle in the weeks ahead too.

On Friday, I like Borussia Dortmund as it hosts Cologne in the Bundesliga. Dortmund should win this, and at the very least draw as they march towards the title. So a draw-no-bet on the hosts is recommended.

Draw-no-bet: Borussia Dortmund
