Ruby Walsh and Paddy Power fired up the trusty Zoom app to deliver a special preview edition of From The Horse’s Mouth for the Ebor Festival at York Races this week.
The lads took a look at two races on Thursday so let’s see what Paddy and Ruby made of the first of the day and the big one at 15:15. You can listen to the tip-filled From The Horse’s Mouth below or wherever you get your podcasts from.
I think the favourite Sacred is entitled to be favourite. She was second in the Queen Mary to Campanelle and that’s the strongest form in the race. Santosha beat Hala Hala Hala at Newmarket in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes.
Miss Amulet won over five furlongs at Naas but will she get the six? Maybe Sussex Gardens is the each-way play for Jessie Harrington. She did win over six furlongs at Naas and she was second to Mother Earth over six furlongs as well, so as an outsider Sussex Gardens but Sacred is entitled to be favourite.
Sacred for me. That second in the Queen Mary looks strong and it was eye-catching as well, she bolted two or three lengths clear of third and that’s over a sprint which is a long way in a sprint. So, any kind of improvement from that will probably be enough, I think.
Love will win and I think One Voice in the forecast to follow her home. One Voice was second to Fancy Blue in the Nassau, I think Love will beat Once Voice.
I think Love will win, one of the stars of the season, and I think she’ll lap them.
