14/1 Discussiontofollow up for the Stewards’ Cup

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Discussiontofollow has caught the eye in his last two starts and makes plenty of appeal at 14/1 in the Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood today (3.45).

Michael Murphy trained gelding has won three of his nine starts over this afternoon’s 6f trip, and was last successful in a valuable contest at Ascot 12 months ago when scoring by a head.

Discussiontofollow backed that up with an excellent sixth of 24 to Intrinsic in this race, coming from well off the pace and getting hampereed inside the final furlong before running on strongly to be beaten 2 3/4 lengths off a mark of 98.

He is now able to race off just 2lb higher having shaped as if coming to the boil in his last two starts.

In the first of those, Discussiontofollow kept on nicely to finish a 2 1/4 length runner-up to Foxy Forever in a competitive 21-runner contest over 5f at the Curragh.

The five-year-old was then beaten just 1 3/4 lengths when fifth of 18 to Double Up in a 5f contest at Ascot, finishing the race off very strongly.

The step back up to 6f is sure to suit, and Murphy looks to have campaigned Discussiontofollow with this race in mind and have him peaking at just the right time.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Discussiontofollow (14/1 generally available – use BOG firms paying 5 places)
