You have to go back to 2009 for the last time an older runner came out on top.That isn’t great news for this year’s favourite Dream Of Dreams but the Sir Michael Stoute runner is joined by Glorious Journey, History Writer and Breathtaking Look.

Official ratings are a big factor and you need to stick north of 107 as a rule.

That’s where we wave goodbye Surf Dancer, Namos, Symbolize and Lincoln Bright.

Sometimes you have to dig really deep to cut the field down using the stats but that really hasn’t been an issue this time as we are quickly reduced to a shortlist of just two — Threat and Pierre Lapin.

At first glance, their recent form isn’t great but that’s not a worry as just two of the past ten Hungerford winners scored on their last run.

But there is one pointer that brings us to a head — the need for a previous win over the seven-furlong distance.

That’s where THREAT pulls clear as he scored over the trip at Doncaster last season.

BLOG ARSENAL VS WEST HAM

GOOD EVENING

Welcome to our live blog of Arsenal against West Ham.

Mikel Arteta’s Gunners will be looking to make it two wins from two to start the season after a convincing 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage last week.

In addition to that, since the Gunners last played, club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penned a new three year deal believed to be worth upwards of £350,000-a-week.

West Ham meanwhile be looking to get their first points of the season on the board, after a disappointing 2-0 home loss to Newcastle to start the campaign.

For Arsenal, the aim will be to press on tonight after an excellent first game, in a bid to mount a serious challenge for the top four places this season.

On the other hand, West Ham’s immediate priority will be to pick up points quickly, in order to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on the news of Aubameyang signing a new contract, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said:

“I think the big reason Auba’s staying is because we have an incredible football club.

“He feels how much love he’s got from the fans.

“I played my part but the club and the people that have been able to put a package together for him to stay deserve credit.

Kick off is at 8pm and team news will follow shortly.

Leinster 17-25 Saracens: Goode day for Alex as Mark McCall’s side earn Champions Cup win

leinster 17 25 saracens goode day for alex as mark mccalls side earn champions cup win

Alex Goode inspired Saracens’ first-half bullying of Leinster in their own backyard as they left the Aviva Stadium with a defiant 25-17 quarter-final win and renewed hopes of a fourth Heineken Champions Cup title in five years.

Goode stood in for the suspended Owen Farrell at fly-half and gave a masterful display, converting his own 36th-minute try and kicking four penalties in a 19-point haul. Elliot Daly also supplied two monster strikes.

Having won 25 straight games since losing last year’s European final to Sarries, the Guinness PRO14 champions struggled into the wind and were alarmingly 22-3 behind at half-time.

Leinster got back within five points thanks to tries from Andrew Porter and Jordan Larmour, but with Goode landing a last-minute penalty, Mark McCall’s eighth seeds secured a famous Dublin victory and a semi-final trip next week to either Clermont Auvergne or Racing 92.

With Covid-19 restrictions robbing this heavyweight clash of a capacity crowd, Goode quickly made an impact with three central penalties inside 11 minutes. The best of them was from 42 metres out as the visitors built a 9-3 lead.

Jonathan Sexton sandwiched in a meaty response from the left wing, with referee Pascal Gauzere keeping a keen eye on the breakdown. Leinster’s best first-quarter assault was foiled by a Maro Itoje interception.

Sarries were defending astutely to keep Leinster contained near the halfway line and after Vincent Koch drove Cian Healy backwards to win a 24th-minute penalty, Daly brilliantly turned it into three points.

The pair combined again soon after, Daly drilling over from distance after another dominant Sarries set-piece. Leinster blew a big maul opportunity approaching the break, Sarries leaking a series of penalties but clearing the danger with a turnover and another scrum penalty.

The English giants then went for the jugular just outside the Leinster 22, Duncan Taylor deftly drawing in two defenders and offloading for the pacy Goode to score past Hugo Keenan’s last-ditch tackle.

The reigning European Player of the Year also converted to push the gap out to 19 points, with Daly failing with a late 63-metre penalty attempt. The England full-back missed an early second-half drop goal before Leinster finally seized some control.

It was much more like it from Leo Cullen’s men as Porter, with support from James Ryan, drove in under the posts in the 48th minute. Sexton took the hosts into double figures but Sarries’ physical defence managed to keep out further attempts.

That was until the hour mark when Sexton was caught high by Mike Rhodes, the 60th-minute penalty leading to a quick switch back to midfield where Sexton’s early pass put Larmour outside Alex Lewington and in close to the posts for a rallying seven-pointer.

Rhodes, the eventual man-of-the-match, redeemed himself with some key interventions, and despite Goode and Daly suffering penalty misses, a panicky Leinster coughed up possession when trying to break from deep.

It was left to the 32-year-old Goode to steer over the clinching penalty from the right wing, leaving Leinster crestfallen and ensuring that Saracens, against the backdrop of their impending relegation, could yet end their most turbulent of seasons with Europe’s biggest prize.
