    Bad run by Pretend and it wasnt just the draw although the race was dominated by high drawn horses
    Pretend is better than that even on turf and turf wasnt to blame

    1 point lost today so not a disaster

    6 points staked because of the non runner with 5 points returned for a 6/4 winner at 2 points staked

  2. John 1 year ago

    JohnB, aside from Golden Horn which is the red hot favourite what other horses do you believe have a chance for the Derby this weekend? Or at least able to make the frame for 2nd/3rd position?

    Would love to hear your thoughts and from any others please.

  3. John 1 year ago

    This is the shortlist so far:

    Golden Horn
    Jack Hobbs
    Elm Park
    Giovanni Canaletto
    Hans Holbein
    Success Days
    Storm The Stars
    Best Of Times
    Rocky Rider
    Rogue Runner
    Carbon Dating

    Carbon Dating at 200/1? Hmmmm.

    Paddy Power have stopped paying double the odds on a single winner on a lucky 15 on the horses since end of February, and I didn’t even notice until today !!

    Epsom Downs
    Saturday July 6
    The DERBY

    The Main Contenders

    Aiden O’Brien has won the Derby five times with GALILEO, HIGH CHAPARRAL, CAMELOT, RULER OF THE WORLD & AUSTRALIA

    What where the main O’Brien Derby horses before this season started have all gone and he is now relying on horses that where never really thought about but that’s what happens in racing as a top class two year old doesn’t guarantee a top class three year old
    O’Brien runners this year are

    who won the Lingfield Derby trial but the fact is that a major improvement is needed for him to even place let alone win as that race was pretty ordinary form

    Probably regarded by many as the main hope for O’Brien but his last run at the Curragh was poor and obviously needs a big step up on form to trouble the main fancies

    Looking at previous form this is another horse that needs some serious improvement to win
    he has won over 1m 4f but that last run at Chester just isn’t good enough yet that was his best form yet but I wouldn’t be surprised if Storm The Stars reversed the Chester form

    I really can’t see which one of those O’Brien horses could place
    Other horses we have are

    Trained by a trainer that has to be respected Dermot Weld this unbeaten colt by Shamardal could yet be anything as he has yet to run against anything of note and also has to step up an extra four furlongs
    he has so much against him yet as I said he is unbeaten and could be anything

    If we are going to get an outsider placing then this could be the one as he is improving with every run and did stay 1m 4f when second to Hans Holbein
    Storm The Stars was also second to Golden Horn beaten a head over a mile as a two year old

    But the main form for the Derby has to be the Dante

    This horse was third in the Dante but he was more experienced than the two in front of him and still couldn’t take advantage of that which suggests he won’t be able to do it in the Derby
    also no horse has ever reversed the Dante placings to win the Derby

    Now its down to the John Gosden pair

    this horse last time took the step up in company when running in the Dante and second to Golden Horn but beaten just under three lengths
    the worrying part was how he was hanging which is not a good sign for a course like Epsom
    and again no horse has ever reversed the Dante placings to win the Derby

    MY 33/1 anti post pick this horse has stormed his way to the top of the betting and is now 7/4 favourite
    The owners have stumped up the £75,000 to get him in the race even though the owner doesn’t think he will stay the distance
    would he really pay £75,000 to supliment a horse he thought couldn’t win?
    Golden Horn has every attribute to win the Derby
    He can switch off when running which is a major plus as he can conserve energy for the finish
    He is also well balanced which means he will handle the undulating track and in my mind he is a worthy favourite

    My top three placings are

    1st – GOLDEN HORN

    2nd – JACK HOBBS

    I wondered if you (or anybody else) had any detailed results on how the doubles you advise have performed since you began posting?
    It is quite clear that you have been doing a great longterm job overall, but I was curious as to how it broke down and whether the doubles were in profit?

    Connections of Zawraq have warned the colt is not certain to line up in Saturday’s Investec Derby after suffering an injury scare on Tuesday morning.

    The Dermot Weld-trained runner is among the leading fancies for the Epsom showpiece but after completing a satisfactory piece of work, he was found to be slightly lame on his return to the yard.

    “He did a bit of work this morning with Pat Smullen up, he did it fine and walked back to the yard OK but when the head lad came back into his box, he just thought he took a lame step,” said Angus Gold, racing manager to owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum .

    Zawraq is prominent in the Derby ante-post lists after impressively winning his two starts to date.

    Gold said: “He did his work fine, had a pick of grass back at the yard, but they just felt he wasn’t 100 per cent when they trotted him up.

    “He has been taken to the vets for an X-ray and scans and they came back fine, they didn’t show up anything apart from a small mark on the inside of his near-fore cannon bone, so hopefully he has just given himself a knock.

    “He’s being iced and hopefully he’s just given himself a bang, but we will obviously know more over the next 36 hours or so.

    “It was his final piece of work so he’s done everything he needs to do and is a fit horse.

    “We are hoping to get him to the Derby but we just wanted to make everyone aware of what has happened.

    “We’ll see if anything comes to light in the next 36 hours.”

  86. Nick 1 year ago

    Why did the jockey stop when the gap opened. But in all honesty a good enough horse wud of went through the gap and won it.

  87. Martin 1 year ago

    He had room for a run and wasn’t good enough.

  88. hbombs 1 year ago

    Even with a clear run….don’t think it had a chance with the winner…might have snuck a place….but even then…not sure

  89. Nick 1 year ago

    Johnb not really the gap opened and he never went through. The horse doesn’t look good enough in my opinion
