    Anyway he meets the same rivals today and I have a feeling he could come out on top this time.

    I'm still on my Sabatical with my Zero accounts so can't have a bet but g/l to anyone who does
    BTW Another horse his lordship was touting for the Golden Mile was Azano

    As I said last week that was never going to happen after all David O.Meara's hard work getting him back to sorts.

    As predicted he goes back to Redcar tomorrow. He's up against it with Golden Voice runnung but he's worth grabbing the 15/2 W Hill EW Azano or15/2 for a back to lay or 15/2.
    I thought he'd be 7/2 at best being a course winner

    He led until 2 furlongs out and then went out like a light I see. Even his trainer admitted before the Old Newton Cup that his best trip must now be 1M4F. Why they are still running him over 14 furlongs I just don't know.

    He looked like a horse with a lot of potential after the Melrose at York.

    Nevermind. Glad I swerved him today.

    I like him as well. The fav will be hard to beat but I'm not keen on the Magnet Cup horses who are next in the betting.

    Oscula killed me by losing at Ascot when she was the best horse (jockey went too soon) and winning at Goodwood when I wasn't on despite being the third best filly in the race. She's out again in the Dick Hern and she's short. Crenelle ran a cracker in a very hot Sandringham and whilst Heredia has been beaten twice since then that's Hannon for you. The form is good and 7/2 is very reasonable

    Also backed Admiral D in the last at Ascot. His formlines are very strong.

    I like the look of Royal Champion EW. He's a big price but that didn't stop him hacking up at Epsom

    Maurice de Gheest is a cracking renewal. Prices:
    Perfect Power 11/4
    Naval Crown 7/2
    Artorius 5/1
    Harry Three 13/2
    Minzaal 9/1
    Highfield Princess 11/1
    Rohaan 14/1

    It's quite open and the front two look short to me. I've done the Aussie horse ew as the extra half furlong will really suit. May have a little on Rohaan also.

    To be fair, Euro, there weren't many posts on the Shergar Cup either. I started the thread for the reasons given and was already regretting having studied the card before the racing started.

    I seldom study French racing and I wouldn't offer an opinion on a race there without at least a cursory check on the form. The Arc is probably the only French race I do study in detail.

    Going by the result of today's race, it's maybe a good job I avoided it.

    I do agree, though, that it's a shame the race didn't get much in the way of discussion. For my own part, I seldom read that thread because I only bet in the bigger Saturday and festival races and don't want to get bogged down reading a thread on races that don't interest me.

    Perhaps a separate thread if a big race like today's comes along?
    Never stop looking for what's not there.

    Fair enough. I think with the sprinters you don't need to study the French form honestly, certainly not when the Brits/Irish go over mob handed. I was a bit salty as Rohaan got a less than optimal ride.

    The Gosdens must think a lot of Audience, although struggling somewhat to find a distance for him. Maybe they thought it was 7 furlongs until he was found wanting in a Group 3 at Ascot, so they tried a Class 2 over 6 furlongs last time where he ran very well near the head of things until running out of puff in the last half furlong. Maybe tomorrow’s 5 furlongs will be just the ticket - Nottingham 3:50, 5/2 atm.

    Yes, I saw very nearly 8,000 and it’s a Class 3, too. No wonder people are up in arms about prize money.
