This afternoon's Class 3 EBF Stallions Soba Conditions Stakes looks to be at the mercy of Move In Time and after a number of withdrawals the bookies have shortened up David O'Meara's charge to a generally available price of 4/6.
The Monsieur Bond gelding was a model of consistency last year when easing to victory at Headquarters before hitting the crossbar three times in a row, beginning with a narrow defeat in Ascot's Shergar Cup Dash. The margin of defeat was even less when again finding just one too good in the Symphony Group Stakes at York and the rotten luck continued in a Group 3 at Longchamp in September.
However, the following month Move In Time lived up to his name with a perfectly executed dash for the line under Daniel Tudhope to steal the Prix de l'Abbaye over the same track and trip and get his just deserts.
The 7-year-old has gone well fresh in the past and with today's non-runners cutting down the number of opponents, there is every reason to believe the horse can win off top weight.
