I must admit to having a few small quid on the Al Aasy derby gamble. His breeding does fit the profile and someone gave me a stat that said both Sea The Stars classic winners were once raced two year olds which I thought was interesting. To go from 66/1 to 20s in that short space of time is quite something. Therefore I was a little surprised to see him at 5/1 with WH for the derby trial. That’s massive potentially. If he is to win the derby he has to win here and there doesn’t look that much in the race so I’m on
Interesting race that Frenchy. Oisin Murphy spoke well of the well bred English King. There’s 14s about him and i don’t know if he’s certain to show up. He does show up well enough in his sectionals too. Just a maiden winner, Max Vega definitely sets a high enough standard, but the visual impression combined with his pedigree suggests EK could be pretty decent.
Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!
This race looks a shade disappointing without the usual AOB runner or 2. English King would appeal as the obvious one to me. Certainly appears to have the most potential in here, also liked Pride Of America but have stamina doubts.
