    A bit better from Different League this evening but beaten favourite again in 4th place in Listed class. Out to 20/1 in placed now and needs to find form in a hurry.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    Low draw on that track steve is hard to win most win races when drawn in middle very rare see group winners in sprints in low draw.Think better drawn at 6f see her in better light

    I don’t like having to make excuses for horses Darren. A group 1 horse should be rattling home in lesser company.

    A nice boost for the much overlooked Sands Of Mali today, when runner up from his last win, Alistair, confirmed what looked a much improved performance in running Sands Of Mali close, by landing a Group 3 sprint at rewarding odds of 7/1 at Maisons-Laffitte.

    With US Navy Flag staying at a mile for now, he may end up arriving here as a bust. I wouldn’t want to be investing in him at lousy looking odds.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    Taken a price of roughly 24s for UNFORTUNATELY on the machine. I think he will be an awful lot shorter once he has made his reappearance in the Sandy Lane, and his trainer was effusive when talking about how well he has wintered.

    US Navy Flag seems like he is going to the Irish Guineas next, with the statement being that the French Guineas was inconclusive regarding the mile trip. Leaving it late to prime him for 6F here.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    On Murillo at 16/1 for this so really hoping he does the business at Newbury this afternoon. Ground is in his favour and I’ll be mightily disapointed should he not come out on top.

    Absolutely diabolical from Murillo today, a far cry from the horse who ran so well in last year’s Coventry.

    I think that’s a bit harsh Charles. It was an absolute mess of a race tactically, and I thought SDS caught them all napping on the winner, with a brilliant, positive ride.

    Murillo is probably nothing special, and the Coventry form of last year hasn’t really amounted to much so I wouldn’t even say his 3rd there means an awful lot, but I think if today’s race was ran again he would have finished a lot closer.

    Eqtidaar and Murillo were the two best horses in the race today in my opinion, and if Crowley had got his fractions right on the former he would have won.

    Sioux Nation did himself no harm today. Some 8s about but not much.

    The fillies look out of it. Heartache was a huge bust and Different League was beaten again. The thing with the O’Brien filly is that it’s three runs this season that are about a stone and more behind her best form last year.

    Sands Of Mali was gutsy again in the Sandy Lane and Richard Fahey said it would be ideal if something would go off like a scalded cat and tow him into the race.

    Generally about 8/1 now for Fahey’s sprinter and connections seem to feel their is more to come from him. Unfortunately was the friendless and disappointing horse in the Sandy Lane.

    Invincible Army is a grand and consistent sort who has met good company along the way. He was a short head second to Guineas favourite Masar at Goodwood on debut and his flaw is being second when I back him :yes: Three wins and five seconds in nine starts, his worst placing was 4th to Cardsharp in the July Stakes, where US Navy Flag was second and the Coventry winner just pipped him for third.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    Equilateral 6/1.

    Unfortunately missed out on the 50/1 Ben has, but I am more than happy to get involved at this price. You couldn’t but be impressed by the way he hacked up at at Doncaster, and the second has come out since and won a handicap off of 80.

    Loving ours getting smashed in Voleur always nice when the 2nd horse wins a handicap off a decent mark. Fingers crossed for the big day 😀 😀

    Just wish I’d got more on it haha but it’s a game of greed and we have to block that bit out! Not long to wait now 😀
