A couple of decent races at the Curragh to conclude the week. I'm hoping a consistent O'Brien runner will enjoy the step up in trip and drop in class. It's been a decent week for the selections, fingers crossed this one can end the week in style.

Curragh 3:35

This renewal doesn't appear to be full of horses who could win this, with arguably three or four at a push having a chance based on the bare form. In my opinion, THE MEDITERRANEAN deserves to be the favourite and should take all the beating if he stays this trip and if he isn't fatigued from his efforts in the St Leger just over a fortnight ago.

In recent years this race has been dominated by 3yo's, who have won the last three versions of this race. At this time of year, the weight for age allowance isn't massive, but it is still a big help. The Mediterranean is already the highest rated horse in the race, yet he gets 7lbs from his closest rival, Search For A Song. The latter horse doesn't appear to be at the same level as she once was, and I think she has an uphill task of giving away weight to a horse who could potentially be better at this new trip, as he could be a cup horse for next year.

Aidan O'Brien's horse definitely has the strongest form on offer, with his recent third at Doncaster in the St Leger. He finished 4.75 lengths behind Hurricane Lane, who is an absolute monster of a horse and is definitely in the top 2/3 of the 3yo crop this season, so that performance is no disgrace. The time before the Leger saw The Mediterranean finish 2nd to Yibir in the York Great Voltigeur Stakes. That form has been boosted since, as the winner went on to win the Belmont Park Derby, and doing it in easy fashion. Obviously that's in America, so it's hard to weigh up what he beat, but to put it into perspective, Bolshoi Ballet was back in fourth, 5.5 lengths behind Yibir, and he is a previous Group 1 winner.

Of the older horses, you'd have to say that Lismore is the main threat. He looks like a totally different beast under the trainer Henry De Bromhead, and beat a decent field in a Group 3 at Sandown back in May. He has not been seen since, which would be a concern, but nevertheless he will one of the main rivals.

    Evening,

    A messy disappointing Saturday it looked for punters.. I only had the one large each way selection on Irish Admiral but he faded quite quickly.

    As usual Saturday is normally a day to keep the money in the pocket or stick to the football but even that throws in the shocks with Liverpool drawing with Brentford and untied beat by villa.. You can’t win!

    Anyway back to racing. I’ve only the one selection and I’ve been sat scratching my head over two runners in the race but I’ve finally decided on one.

    Knowing my luck none of them will be anywhere to be seen and I’ll be away with my tail between my legs… but I’ll take the punt anyway!!

    1:50 – Epsom Downs – Sovereign Prince 7/2 365

    The other selection that I was struggling to choose from was DevasBoy for mark johnston. Like I’ve previously said punting on inexperienced 2 year olds with only a handful of runs under their belt is always a risk regardless of yard,jockey and pedigree. Well in my opinion anyway.

    Johnston likes his horses taking the lead or at least very prominent 1 or 2 of the leader. I don’t know… I do feel Fanning will take him to the lead/be very prominent and you see it all the time with inexperienced 2 year olds that take the lead, they get lonely and start to wonder.They are still learning their trade.

    Sovereign Prince is conceding weight all round which isn’t a plus but he ran a nice 2nd to Wings of war who went on to land the Mill Reef and that forms stands him in a strong position regardless of being top weight. Buick on board is an obvious plus and doesn’t need explaining.

    Good luck

    Have a bit of that!

    Sovereign Prince swoops through with half a furlong left to land the spoils! Devasboy chased her home in behind and I got that one bang on the money!

    It’s been a fantastic week of tipping!

    Well done if you followed, well done all winners!

    Race 1 gulfstream- gran saman 14/1 e/w

  13. cairnzy1878 4 weeks ago

    Last one from me,

    Each way extra 4 places on this one. Not sure if all online betting firms offer it. If not take the normal 3 places.

    5:50 Ffos- Notre Maison

    Coast and Lil Guff are probably worthy enough market leaders but Lil Guff was frustrating to follow and finally got the head in front last time out at Kempton but has been penalised for that win and that might just find her out.

    Coast ridden by Oisin Murphy current market leader
    ran into one too good last time but should be winning in this company sooner rather than later.

    What drew my eye to Notre Maison was the booking of Rob Hornby the young jockey is in decent form and he seems to ride some big odd winners as of late. Trainer has only ridden 2 year olds this season and both have won their races was another thing that caught the eye. If you can take each way extra ( 4 places ) at 20s it might not be a bad bet.

    Nothing else from me today. Good luck!
