Everybody knows that Sir Erec has got one hoof on the Triumph, but nobody really wants to back him at evens. It’s a price thing. And it’s a price thing with Adjali, who went for a walk in the market on the basis of his heavy defeat at the hands of Fakir D’Oudairies at Cheltenham, but it’s worth remembering that he went off 5/4 that day, and there are reasons for giving him a pass for his subdued shift, the less testing ground for one thing, also possibly not over his Welsh war with Quel Destin over Christmas, next to nothing between them that day but now a lot between them on the betting. A more patient ride in a bigger field may just do something for the freshened-up Adjali in the Triumph, and if the rain comes so will the support.
