13:25 – Hermana Estrella

I’m going with HERMANA ESTRELLA. She was too free in the Guineas and dropping back to 6f will really suit her. Jamie Spencer takes the ride again, which is always a bonus! She’s open to plenty of improvement.

14:00 – Dexter Belle

I like DEXTER BELLE for Eddie Lynam. His first run for Eddie was pretty impressive and he travelled really strongly. He’s stepping up to 7f here and I’ll take a chance on him.

15:05 – Shartash

I’m going to go against Blackbeard and Crispy Cat and siding with SHARTASH. He could be the improver in this race as I don’t see Blackbeard making many changes since his Royal Ascot run.

15:45 – Lionel

Tuesday and Westover are at the top of the betting but I’m going with LIONEL for David Menuisier and Jamie Spencer. He was really good on his last start at Goodwood and he impressed at Newbury before that. I feel sorry for the Curragh that they haven’t got the top horses in this race to sell it.

16:20 – Rumbles Of Thunder

I like RUMBLES OF THUNDER and he seems the one to beat. He impressed last time out at Gowran Park when winning and he wasn’t bad at Cork in April.
