Crazyland won very nicely at Windsor first time out and this daughter of Kodiak showed a lot of natural ability. There is so much speed in her pedigree with the likes of Queen of Bermuda in the family. She sets a pretty good standard here with the second at Windsor, Sienna Bonnie, who reopposes here, winning next time out. Canonized and Nymphadora were slow away at Newmarket in the race a few of these were involved in and Andrew Balding’s filly could be a steal each-way as she was strongly fancied that day and blew her chance at the start.
Snow Lantern is a daughter of a 1,000 Guineas winner in Sky Latern and looked the real deal when winning at Newbury. With a little juice in the ground, she has to be the one to beat. They were worried about the undulations at Newmarket for the Guineas and instead targeted this contest and will then go on to Royal Ascot. Love Is You was very inconvenienced by the way the race was run in the Nell Gwyn at HQ. They sprinted late on and she was out-speeded. This will be much more her type of race. Creative Flair is interesting after her wins at Sandown and Ascot, where she kept on really well when looking in trouble.
Makram was a beaten favourite at Newmarket over a mile. Stepping up in trip now to 1m 2f will really suit him. He finished the race off really well and the extra two furlongs here are just what the doctor ordered and with only 8st 6lb on his back, he has to be at the top of the list. Blue Cup was a good fifth over this trip at Epsom and finished the race off really well in the hands of Ryan Moore. He should have been second at worst as he was denied a run several times. He was very keen in the middle part of this race so is not straightforward. It’s interesting that Ryan Moore stays loyal to his old boss Sir Michael Stoute.
It’s a shame that we don’t have Stradivarius on show but Mark Johnston won’t mind! I love Nayef Road, he is tough as old boots and handles all types of ground. He can beat his stablemate Sir Ron Priestley and Santiago. Santiago has had had the benefit of a run and last year’s St Leger fourth will be hoping to throw his hat into the ring for the stayers’ crown this year.
This is a wide open hcp and one of the leading trainers at the track is David O’Meara. His stable jockey Daniel Tudhope rides Star Shield, the son of helmet and he is proven on slow ground. He has run well off this mark at this track over a mile and dropping back to 7 I don’t think will be a problem. His draw in 19 may not be all that bad as they tend to spread out across the track. Boardman is the obvious one as he bolted up at Haydock and Tim Easterby loves having winners at York.
