So here we are with another Classic weekend! Fantastic stuff! The blog did ok again on Thursday with OPINION POLL (5-4) winning and STIPULATE coming 2nd at 14-1. That would have been a great nap, just got pipped though.
On to Epsom. I will do my normal best three and then cover all the Epsom races too. Lets hope we have a great Oaks on Friday and some winners!
BETTERBETTERBETTER 1605 EPSOM – (nap) (unplaced) is bred to do the job and whilst the run at Chester was disappointing I have a sneaky feeling the better ground and undulations will suit this one.
AMOUR PROPRE 2000 HAYDOCK – (nb) (unplaced) is a class horse and won a Group 3 at the Curragh last time. Has a real touch of class and should be too good for these.
CLINICAL 1340 EPSOM – (treble) (WON 7-1) was third in this last year on good ground and then progressed and went on to win three races at Listed class. Another step up required but it can be bridged
Here are my Epsom selections as promised other than the two above :
BLACK SPIRIT e/w 215 (unplaced)
WORTHADD 250 (unplaced)
NORSE BLUES 325 (unplaced)
LADY GORGEOUS 1650 (3rd – 5-1)
FAMOUS POET 525 (unplaced)
My trainer to follow Declan Carroll has one first time out at Newcastle JOMARI 1330 – worth a stab? (unplaced)
