I’d be very surprised if Ryan Moore doesn’t ride Bolshoi Ballet. He was really good in the Derrinstown Derby Trial and he’d been good prior to that at Leopardstown where he beat Flying Visit. We all know Flying Visit is very hit and miss, but it was still a good win.
Bolshoi Ballet just looked incredible in the Derrinstown Derby Trial and he looks the real deal to me. You’ve got to go back a long way, the early 2000s, to find the horse who won the Derby after winning the Derrinstown Derby Trial but Bolshoi Ballet could be the next to do it. I’d say he’s my NAP!
One I like and I’m only going off a bit of form is El Drama. He might be priced accordingly as he could be the second string of Roger Varian. His performance in the Dee Stakes was brilliant, where he beat Earlswood. Earlswood won at Curragh last weekend so it makes El Drama’s run even better. The form is there and it’s pretty strong, so El Drama is worth an each-way punt.
Mohaafeth, trained by William Haggas, won at Newmarket and beat Secret Protector and it was a good performance. Whether he could get the job done here, I’m not sure.
