    The post position draw is history, and it is time for racing's greatest minds to start planning strategy. Will there be a fast pace or a slow pace?

    There is no escaping the fact that Hard Spun proved he is a brilliant, classy horse with his bounce back performance in the Lane's End Stakes (gr.
