The World Champion from Osaka has been forgotten this year, such has been the remarkable talent shown and times put up by 18yo Pamela Jelimo. However, Jepkosgei looks to be peaking and might still trouble her young countrywoman, who has been priced at an incredibly short 1.10 to win the final. In her semi, Jepkosgei looked very comfortable and racing from the front, just pulled out a little more when required and was hardly breathing after the race. It could be that she cannot live with Jelima, but I see her as clearly the best of the rest and think that she is fantastic value without the favourite.
1 point Jepkosgei to win 11.0 Paddy Power.
8 points Jepkosgei 2.625 Victor Chandler, without "Jelima" ..... this is 2.20 with Ladbrokes which is acceptable at a pinch, other companies should quote later in the day. NOW 2.10
