The Metropolitan of 2008 raced over 2400m at Randwick, should be a very very interesting race! Now in my opinion The Metropolitan has 4 main chances Red Lord ($2.80), Fuimicino ($6), Bianca ($7) and my personal favourite Gallopin ($8).
Now I’m going to have to go with the majority here, and assume that Anthony Cummings is going to have a very successful day at Randwick on Saturday. By that I saying that I think Red Lord will have a slight edge over his opponents in the 2008 Metropolitan. BUT. Yes he’s a solid performer, but at $2.80 I’m not feeling a lot of love. I mean value.
Anyone got any other tips for the 2008 Metropolitan?
