    PK does look smart and it looks like either the Lagardere or the Autumn Stakes next to get a try at the track –

    I was holding off as i thought he would be more likely to go the french Guineas but reading the above Newmarket would sound the favourable plan if all goes well next time out, so i’ve had a go at some of the 25s.

    That’s me until next year with three sons of Kingman in my book for this – Calyx/KOC/PK. Hope they train on!

    This thread is sponsored by Nick Luck in conjunction with James Willoughby 😉

    He is a very good trainer and may not be fully recognised because of his ban but that’s just guessing really.

    James’ piece on KB will be interesting when it comes out, as long as it’s not too scientific!

    Agree Degaussed, 10s is too big after that performance.

    Royal Intervention picked up an injury on her last run and is out for the season Jac :negative: They hope to get her back for a Guineas trial but think 7F will probably be best for her.

    Not seen any official quotes but thoughts seem to be that Persian King will run in the Lagardere next rather than the Royal Lodge which is maybe a bit close being next Saturday.

    I’ve got a decent bet on Lah Ti Dar at a nice price from before her listed race so thought i’d Best take another look and try and cover it a bit with so many looking like non runners.

    Kitesurf chinned Magic Wand yesterday in the Vermeille and I think she’s definitely the bet in this field at 20s with BF/PP. Fabre’s comments sound like he wants to run her here over the Arc so i’d Say she’s 80% likely to go here at this stage.

    George Bowen 25/1

    Been aimed at this race and think the C & D will suit him. Biblical rain on Thursday has me a bit worried but such is life.

    Couldn’t agree more Ginge, the change of pace TDH showed was incredible. Massive player in the guineas and hopefully, for quite a few of us, he’ll go on to stay well enough for the Derby.

    Quorto i thought was impressive also but didn’t show anywhere near the same pace and won more in the style of a future Derby prospect than Guineas. AVD would be my early early Leger hoss, looks a right boat.

    Very exciting 2YOs the last few months and there is probably a few lurking still to come also :yahoo:
    Don’t forget King Of Comedy, Phoenix Of Spain franked his maiden form nicely again behind TDH on Saturday – just hope whatever is wrong with him isn’t too bad.

    Proper hoss Roaring Lion. Change of speed is exceptional.

    Very enjoyable race and the winner won nicely.

    Seamie I thought was holding onto more on SF, there was a point when KG was off the bridle as he started to nudge and instead of going on SF he waited for KG to start coming alongside before starting to push properly. Not sure he’d have won but he’d have been much closer B-) Definitely one to follow next season.

    LTD wasn’t as strong a stayer I thought and probably wouldve liked it slightly slower. Hopefully she makes amends in the F&Ms.

    Really looking forward to the race now that she’s running!

    Into 15/8 Fav looks a bit short to me, think books will try and get her in the book come Saturday morning especially if there isn’t anymore rain.

    Samcro decision decided and they’re taking this on by the moves of the markets.

    Generally they don’t make as good a chaser after two seasons hurdling, hope it’s not a case of what could have been with this beast!

    Excellent blog Paul, best of luck with BOF.

    I’ve taken three stabs now, added BOF 20/1 & Timiyan 12/1.

    Haymount 20/1

    Looks overs to me for a horse that looks pretty certain to stay well compared to many of these. Jumping is normally his let down however.

    Oddschecker glitch pal, FOH 2/1, OOSG 5/2 & Latrobe 5/1 with Powers. The same happened the other day and i had to double check before i bet Latrobe!

    Couldn’t be having a bet at this stage with the market so uncertain. LTD running would be lovely stuff.

    Latrobe is still a big old price for the irish one this weekend, 16s Ladbrokes is massive. Surely he goes there with OOSG out, ground looking decent and his best run coming at the Curragh.
