14:30 – Dark Thirty (each-way)

I’m going to take on Alfred Munnings and I’ve landed on DARK THIRTY, based purely on form. He won at Newbury in May and the two horses behind him, Mysterious Night and Marbaan, have both gone and won since. He’s a good each-way shout against a very short favourite.

15:05 – Monaadah

This is a pretty open race but I’m going with MONAADAH for Saeed bin Suroor. He won at Meydan in March and has followed that up with wins at Newcastle and Kempton. Jim Crowley is on board too.

15:40 – Mostahdaf (each-way)

If Hurricane Lane is the horse he was last year then he should win but I’m going to take him on with MOSTAHDAF for John and Thady Gosden. He was well beaten by Bay Bridge on his last start at Sandown but he still ran well. He’s a good each-way shout.

16:20 – Creative Force

Home Affairs could very well win this and give Australia another win but I like CREATIVE FORCE. They’ll go hard in this and that will suit him. He’s drawn in stall one and he’s already had a couple of winners from low draws. I’d rather be on that side. He’ll want all of the 6f but he’ll do me!

17:00 – Warrior Brave

I was doing my research on Quarantine Dreams and that led me straight to WARRIOR BRAVE. He’s drawn in stall three and he’s a great price. He ties in with the favourite too. Warrior Brave is 1lb worse off for his and Quarantine Dreams’ run at Naas in April yet he’s a much bigger price. He’ll get the trip too.

17:35 – Pervade (each-way)

I’m with PERVADE as the favourite is short enough! Colin Keane is on board for Francis-Henri Graffard. He’s drawn in stall 16 and he’s a solid each-way price. He could be progressive and he’s not coming for a day out.

    18:10 – Wordsworth

    I’m very much in the Wordsworth camp for Ryan Moore and Aidan O’Brien as I can’t see Trueshan running. Going up in trip will suit Wordsworth and there should be plenty of extra improvement.
