Any thoughts on the worlds on Sunday ? Course looks to be one of the hardest ever.
The Italians, French, Spanish, Colombians have very strong hands, GBR will fancy the Yates lads but no real evidence of previous one day form in classics that i can think of.
Nibali has targetted this most of the year but his injury in TDF set him back and they may well ride for Moscon who is in excellent form.
Dan martin is tailor made for this course but again injury has not seen him in best light recently. Valverde, Alaphilippe are 2 of the favs but i think both have had long seasons.
For a few small sporting bets have gone for Roglic 14/1 Uran 33/1  Martin 40/1 Kruijswick 150/1 and 2 mad ones on Nieve 400/1 and rein Taaramae 750/1 the latter 2 both excellent climbers on their day.

The podium of La Vuelta could be prominent, Yates, Mas & Lopez all have a shout (not even sure they're all racing tbh). IF backing a favourite I'd go with Nibali as he has been targetting it as you say.

20th for Dunbar
