14:05 Newmarket – Kidwah

I watched a replay this morning of Kidwah winning at Redcar last time out and he bolted up. He was equally impressive on his debut at Doncaster the time before. It’s hard to know what to make of the form but Cieren Fallon is on board for William Haggas so he’ll do me!

14:20 York – Thunderous

I fancy Thunderous over Without A Fight, despite the market suggesting otherwise! There’s not much to say about a three-horse race so that’s that.

14:40 Newmarket – Laasudood

The Charlie Appleby horses have looked good at Newmarket this week but so to are the Richard Hannon horses. I’m going to side with Laasudood over Bay Of Honour. Christophe Soumillon is on board Laasudood, who won last time out at Doncaster.

15:00 Ascot – Alligator Alley

I’m with Alligator Alley for David O’Mearam, who is drawn in stall two, which is a slight concern. I wouldn’t be too concerned about his last run at the Curragh. He’s on a solid mark and he’s definitely getting to a position where he’s going to win a race.

15:15 Newmarket – Isaac Shelby

I can see why people would back Victory Dance but I like Isaac Shelby. I loved the way he kept with the job at Newbury even though he had to get a couple of taps from Sean Levey. I loved the way he hit the line so I’m with him. He’s open to as much improvement as Victory Dance.

15:35 Ascot – Chindit

This is a proper Group 2 race and I hope Chindit wins. He’s been making up the numbers in Group 1 races and he has ran credible races behind Baaeed at times.

15:50 Newmarket – Rhoscolyn

I’m siding with Rhoscolyn for James Doyle and David O’Meara. I liked his run in the Buckingham Palace, where he finished third. He had a wide draw that day but I feel there’s more improvement in him if he’s with the pace. He’s double the price of Montassib so he’ll do me!

16:05 York – Just Fine

I’ve landed on Just Fine, who’s dropping down in trip. He won at Sandown a few runs ago but this isn’t a major fancy, it’s a hard race to call.

16:25 Newmarket – Romantic Proposal

Perfect Power was brilliant in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot but I’ll go with Romantic Proposal for Eddie Lynam. He had a great run at Naas in April, beating Geocentric and Mooneista. Romantic Proposal also has form over 6f after winning at the Curragh last June.

16:40 York – Winter Power

I’m with Winter Power, who will be too fast for the rest of them. She’ll steady herself during the race to make sure she gets home and then she’ll bolt up.
