3 pts win LANSKY  8/1 ( with at least 10 firms, 9/1 with two.)
Tattersalls Acomb Stakes

Always an interesting race this and has thrown up plenty of good ones down the years. Most of these are entered up in some of the big Autumn juvenile events including Dewhurst entrant Lansky who is worth chancing at the price. He was well touted before making his debut at Windsor last week and won in the style of one who is already much better than the bare form indicates, which of course he'll need to be as it was admittedly an ordinary contest. Massively hard to weigh up and could be anything, and that includes a high class performer.

Lost - 3 pts

3 pts win VENICE BEACH 7/1 ( at least 10 firms, bigger with three)
Great Voltigeur

Never handled Epsom and overall this one is a reliable, likeable sort who should run his race here and not be far away. He ran a solid race to finish a staying on third in the Grand Prix de Paris last time and while he looks as though he may be even better over the St Leger trip, the level of his form is already good enough to win an average renewal of this, there is probably further improvement left, and if Cracksman is only marginally below his best he is the most likely to take advantage.
