Baaeed (William Haggas)

I think most peoples lists will include BAAEED, son of Sea The Stars. He is seven from seven and looks like the best miler around. The Queen Anne Stakes looks made for him at Royal Ascot.

Trueshan

Trueshan (Alan King)

TRUESHAN is a bit more ground dependent as a staying champion. We have had a dry spring and nature has a way of balancing the books. If it’s been a dry spring chances are we will have a damp summer and autumn. If that is the case this lad will thrive in those conditions.

Emily Upjohn (John & Thady Gosden)

I was working for ITV at York when EMILY UPJOHN won and I loved her. She has lots of size and scope about her and she put up a very authoritative display. The Oaks looks tailor made for her but she could be interesting for targets later in the season also.

Romantic Proposal (Edward Lynam)

ROMANTIC PROPOSAL, daughter of Ravens Pass, is talented and she won some nice races last season including the flying five at the Curragh, beating A Case Of You in the process. Her comeback run at Naas was impressive and she could just be a sprinter to follow this season. The Kings Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot would be the perfect fit for her.

    Coroebus  (Charlie Appleby)

    Winner of the English Guineas, COROEBUS is definitely a player for all the big races this summer. He certainly looks as though a mile is his trip & the the St James’s Palace Stakes could be his for the taking.

    Homeless Songs (Dermot Weld)

    To win a classic by 5 1/2 lengths takes some doing and that was a hell of a performance by HOMELESS SONGS, daughter of the mighty Frankel. You have to feel that races like the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot will suit. The Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket is another but whatever she runs in she has to be respected.

    Kyprios (Aidan O’Brien)

    Might seem a little odd putting in another ‘stayer’ in the line-up but KYPRIOS is versatile on ground and having two shots at the target is never a bad thing. I’ve been super impressed with this horse and I think he can only get better as he gets older.

    Blackbeard (Aidan O’Brien)

    BLACKBEARD was an easy winner at the Curragh, beating a smart Moyglare Stud-owned horse in Ger Lyons. Definitely one to follow.

    Noble Style (Charlie Appleby)

    I was working at Ascot for ITV when NOBLE STYLE beat a horse called Wallbank that had been highly touted and had cost a lot of money at the sales. This horse looked like he was going to improve for the outing, yet still won convincingly. I thought there was a lot more to come from the son of Kingman and he definitely goes into the notebook.

    Stone Age (Aidan O’Brien)

    Aidan O’Brien will be hoping that he can get one over on Charlie Appleby as it has been a great start to the season for Godolphin, winning the three 2,000 Guineas of England, France and Ireland with their colts. Ballydoyle have multiple contenders for The Epsom Derby but STONE AGE was impressive in the Derrinstown and looks like he will be the mount of Ryan Moore in the big race next week.
