Double Bolt

Izzi Top would not have won, but lost her Place finish when hampered by winner The Fugue in the dying stages of the race. Had this race been in France, The Fugue would have lost the race in the steward's room. The daughter of Dansili is one of the better 3-year old fillies around and is certainly an improving type that needs to be followed in her future races.

One of the most anticipated moments of the Olympics takes place this evening with the 200 metres final in athletics. Can Usain Bolt do the unprecedented double-double of winning the 100 & 200 metres in 2 consecutive Olympics? Clearly, his only opponent in the race is compatriot Yohan Blake who did beat him at the Jamaican trials a couple of months ago in both 100 & 200 metres. This promises to be a Jamaican 1-2 and the order at the finish is the only question mark. After seeing the 100-metre final in which Bolt seemed to have regained his explosive dash, it is hard to go against him here. He looks to be back to his best and if he reproduces this type of form later today, he will be unstoppable. I will go for the exotics here with Bolt coming out first followed by Blake.

Win: Bolt
Top 3: Blake
Specials: Jamaica 1-2, Bolt 100/200.
