    Too early to say for definite, but that looked a nothing pace in the Irish Guineas, imo.

    I still wonder if Kingman was at his best that day, apart from falling out of the stalls. I said at the time, that [falling out of the stalls] and maybe going a shade early might have cost him a fair bit. But he was mightily good today.

    Noble Mission in the Tatts GC

    Always showed he has talent but had been very quirky, now in great form, Magician the obvious (and pretty much only) danger and probably a better horse but the ground should suit NM a lot more. 6/4+ decent.

    Anyone got a cogent argument about the value of 2/1 about Olympic Glory.

    Kelso 2.40 Discoverie 13/2 e/way

    I think this horse has been put away and plotted up for this race - His last race at Hexham in December has worked out well with the two in front of him both running well off 10lb+ higher marks. This race is being sponsored by the Coppola family and they also own this horse.

    They are also sponsoring the 3.10 and Have Solis running so will do a small e/way on Solis and a small e/way double, but Discoverie is the one I fancy.

    if he can beat cirrus over 10 on soft, in france, he's a very good horse.

    I think he is, just not good enough.

    Possibly although he looked beaten at a mile anyway. Maybe needs a longer straight than the first post at Longchamp.

    Had a bit of the 8/1 about Frozen Over in the 16:45 Uttoxeter, in the hope it gets some reward for consistency.

    Aye, but he was ridden more handily than normal.
    Just my take, but he needs to be kept away from Toronado, and today was a test for the POW. Doubt he'll take in any 10f races now though.

    A really poor run by Frozen Over, could see it coming before the 3rd last. Oh well..........

    b/br colt Oasis Dream - Shamtari
    Winner of a Warwick maiden over 6f last August and third in a handicap at Newmarket off a mark of 83 in April
    "He is a colt I like a lot and he has come of for his reappearance at Newmarket. He has been working nicely and should be out again soon. He should stay further than 6f and will win his races."
