One week later than advertised, St Mark’s Basilica won for subscribers to my selections service at VG Tips. They were very happy as this was just one of three winners from three races selected at the home of flat racing on Saturday October 10th.
Just six days after the Aidan O’Brien trained colt could not take his place in a race in France, the 16/1 tip to my members romped home in the high profile Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket. The day before, via my deep and detailed analysis of the race, I alerted them to the fact that St Mark’s Basilica was one of the few in the race that would enjoy the soft turf underfoot. He did.
It was an excellent ride for Frankie Dettori to pick up as Ryan Moore, who had previously ridden the winner, chose instead to ride stablemate Wembley, which finished in second place. Watch the entire Dewhurst Stakes below.
