With so many good options to choose from in the BC Mile, not many people got behind Atomic Eclipse. The six year old gelding would go off as the second longest shot on the board at 34/1 and was hardly picked in the Pick ‘em. He came into the race off a couple of runner ups in Grade 2’s, which are results to be proud of, but others in the field just seemed to have raced in tougher spots and also had success in them.

In such a deep field, Painville was not made one of my choices for the race, simply because of the quality of competition.
