After winning the Craven steaks at Newmarket he continued to run with credit at the highest level getting very close in the St James‘s Palace here at the Royal meeting, was always a bit of a shell of a horse and should have strengthened into his frame with another winter on his back, The yard are coming into form at just the right moment
2:25 Born with Pride
Needs to leave her reappearance effort well behind when disappointing At Kempton, The yard runners at that early stage were taking a run to put them right or just a couple of pieces of work short of match fitness, she managed to win at listed level on her debut and was put up by her trainer in the early part of the season as a future star let’s hope last time was a speed bump in the road
Lampeter be the cornerstone of many and accumulator on the opening day of Royal Ascot this full brother to Japan looks like England to his wonderful pedigree, he was going through the gate nicely last season and wasn’t disgraced on his final start in group one company in the Vertem futurity at Newcastle and you don’t need reminding how strong that form is, he could as they say literally be anything
3:35 Well Done Fox
If Battash decides to turn up we may all be playing second fiddle but the race has a fantastic each-way look about it, The selection was slowly away and did incredibly well finished fourth in the Palace house at Newmarket on his reappearance this season, The track was favouring front runners massively and to get as close as he did to those pace horses was a remarkable effort, massive price each way
Is always going to have a spotlight on her being a half-sister to the legendary racehorse Frankel, some will say she has become expensive to follow and there may be a little truth in that however she is just the type that her trainer excels with and her form around here up at the highest level in group one company is by far and away the best on offer. Her Coronation form was close behind Watch me and Hermosa.
Ran a belter here over 2 miles when lumping 10 stone and was finishing off his race quite strongly, that looked an ideal prep for this marathon test, The excellent Gary Moore has given him a couple of runs jumping just to put him spot on from a stamina perspective and switching back to the flat with jockey who has a good record on him looks a shrewd move, 20/1 ew in a tricky finale
