Betting for the Unibet Best For Bets In Brazil Maiden Stakes at 8.30 has been dominated by Elusive Guest as the George Margarson-trained colt looks the one to beat.
As short as 6/4 with some firms, favourite backers will find a top price of 15/8 available about the 3-year-old with Betvictor wher punters can benefit from best odds guaranteed, while 888Sport quote the same odds and will refund stakes as a free bet if the horse finishes second by a neck or less.
The lightly raced colt was third over course and distance on his sole start as a 2-year-old, but was unable to build on that promise when putting in a below par run on his reappearance over 1m 2f at this venue in April. Elusive Guest was never suited by the soft ground that day which won't be a concern providing it stays dry at Windsor and an improved run is anticipated.
The mount of Kieron Fallon bounced back with a cracking run for third at Nottingham earlier this month, recording a career-best RPR in the process and with further improvement likely, Elusive Guest has to be high on any punter's shortlist.
Bon Voyage looks the one most likely to push him close if first time cheek-pieces can have the desired effect, but Richard Hannon's charge is yet to get a head in front in 9 runs to date and would need to improve considerably from his last run at Bath.
