That's an easy one - Persuasive in the Sandringham. I hope I can persuade you all to back him (that's awful...apologies!)
Especially as you said HIM!
The betting editor has spoken! Slap on the wrist for me. I can confirm that Persuasive is, in fact, a her.
Most of the two-year-old races are guess-ups and that goes doubly for the Chesham, in which you get maidens and horse with only one beaten run to their names. Frankel has made a great start and Cunco's change of gear was quite taking, but if the market is all over him I'll be taking him on. Thought Churchill quite eyecatching on debut
I agree with that git Kealy who will have me study anatomy for the next week. The Chesham is a complete and utter guessing game with no form lines interlinked really. Churchill could be special, though - as baldy has already told you.
No! Of the three Guineas winners, Galileo Gold looks the most vulnerable to me. I'd be be very surprised if he finished ahead of The Gurkha.
I think we've covered the ground. Softer it is the worse it will be for punters is the normal. As for the draw, I think historically you want to be high, but with the ground it's difficult to be too confident. Depends on where the jockeys want to go.
Answering two questions at one time. My fault. Galileo Gold is getting rather big.
Even Song in Ribblesdale - nothing to beat
The more I think about it, the more I think Persuasive is going to prove much better than a 95-rated handicapper so I'm all over her in the Sandringham at 7s. She's special, mark my words. And she is a she.
Has her c hance in a very open race. A few I put ahead of her this time though.
I cannot believe that Esoterique is almost double the price of Erveyda. That makes no sense at all to me.
Could go well, but don't see why he should beat RIbchester, who is a big price for a horse who was third in the Guineas. Gossip talking again in this race with the Gosden-trained favourite having only won a handicap off 86 last time.
I'm going to take a chance on Remarkable in the Jersey at 14-1. Loved the way he went away from the pack when chasing Log Out Island last time.
Think Global Applause has best form in what could prove a weak race. Harry Angel has to improve an awful lot. Always possible, but Global Applause is by Mayson and may even improve for some cut
I was taken by Silver Line's debut at Nottingham but the ground is a big worry.
Yeah that' the Jersey fav I was on about. Stupid price really but stable know what they're doing. Be surprised if he doesn't go bigger on the day
He was value for a lot more than the winning margin at York and the form has worked out quite well. But does he deserve to be so much shorter than Remarkable? It really is quite remarkable that he is so much shorter than Remarkable. That sentence is remarkable.
Oops here's the other three: Out And About - Britannia, Even Song Ribblesdale, The Tin Man - Diamond Jubilee
I know you didn't ask but here's mine - Jennies Jewel (Ascot Stakes), Persuasive (Sandingham), Remarkable (Jersey), Esoterique (Queen Anne).
You make a good case, but Dave can't have Jennies Jewel getting beaten either! I'll side with him
I don't think he will stay and he won't like the ground. Dermot wasn't even going to run him in the Supreme if it wasn't decent ground and I really wish he didn't! He embarrassed me in it!
Brando has to be interesting in Wokingham as he's crying out to go back up to 6f and split two well handicapped horses last time. I've missed the boat now he's 8-1 thought. Sudeois has a shot, but I love The Tin Man - he'll win
I didn't even know what language that question was in for a few minutes! I get it now! I like The Tin Man too but if the ground dries out a bit come Saturday I'll be backing Limato in the Diamond Jubilee.
Good luck with that one - he's older than me
