LOVE is in the air.
It’s Valentine’s Day and I’ve fallen head over heels for one in the finale at Meydan.
VERY TALENTED (6.00 Meydan) has had a stop-start career because of injury, but there is no doubting his class.
His form in 2016 was top-notch; he was a close third behind subsequent Group 1 winner Aclaim at Ascot before overcoming a track bias to fill the same position in the Cambridgeshire.
He returned from almost two years off to win easily at Chelmsford in September, but he bounced when well-fancied for the Cambridgeshire at Newmarket just nine days later.
He has been freshened up since and could be chucked in off his mark, while his ability to win off a lay-off is a big plus.

Meydan 6.00 – Very Talented: Plenty of back-class, goes well fresh and could be on a good mark
