It was another really good day for us today, although one that could have promised to be even better had we had a bit more luck in places. Born In Bombay won at 14/1 with Bilimibi our 2nd fancy of the race picking money up for 4th at 12/1. Cannock Chase ran out an impressive winner for us earlier in the day for Ryan Moore and it was a great disappointment to see Inchilla's effort being interupted after being hampered badly.
Fingers crossed we can make it a 4th profitable day in a row at the meeting, below are our main fancies:
2.30 6f Class 1 Albany Stakes –
SUNSET GLOW 5/1 (sent out to members 5.30pm).Yard's runner let us down today, but should never have been allowed to run with pre loading antics (looked more like a gymnast). Yard's 2yo is really interesting and should be well up to performing at this level on what has been seen so far.Stepping up to 6 furlongs is a slight concern but should hopefully be no trouble and price looks on the generous side.
3.05 1m 2f Class 1 Wolferton Handicap – (Most bookies paying 4 places but be careful)
SAXO JACK 10/1 EW.Progressive sort who did well last season and shaped well in a few starts in Dubai for new yard. Had a small break and should be ready to go here.
3.45 1m 4f Class 1 King Edward VII Stakes –
ADELAIDE 3/1 (sent out to members 5.30pm).Looks the progressive horse lining up here for Aidan O'Brien and it would appear that they have primed their 3yo for this target. Impressed on three dates to date and fitness should be bang on here after a couple of runs last month. Taking on extra furlong should suit and is the leading contender.
4.25 1m 0f Class 1 Coronation Stakes –
MY TITANIA 9/2.Impressed in Ireland as a 2yo and although length of break is a slight worry, is expected to be fit and ready here and in our eyes should be leading contender and what has been achieved to date. Step up to a mile looks in favour and can leave mark.
5.00 2m 0f Class 1 Queens Vase –
CENTURY 5/1 (sent out to members 5.30pm).Shaped impressively in a Curragh maiden back in October on good ground. Made a pleasing enough reappearance last month at Chester in a listed event, staying on encouringly. Steps up in trip to 2miles and which could and should unlock further improvement. Will strip fitter for that Chester run and with the stable having a few winners today, the team will be filled with confidence.
5.35 2m 0f Class 1 Queens Vase – (Paddy Power paying 6 places, many bookies paying 5 places)
RUSSIAN REALM 6/1 EW.Won a decent Goodwood handicap last time out and is progressing in decent order.8lb higher here but should relish a well run race and looks a solid bet for the places at least.
BRONZE ANGEL 20/1 EW. Looked a little in need of both runs this term and should be bang on here.Not on the upgrade but is 1lb below LWM and at a decent price looks worth a bet.
