    Sangarius might be one of my new favourites. Didn’t back him, never heard of him before this week but he looks fab.

    What horses caught your eye (not necessarily winners)?

    Japan and sangarius look like horses to follow for the season

    Fleeting too, wasn’t Ryan Moores greatest moment that one, she has a big win in her

    Will be interested in fairyland if she is upped to 6f, looked to have plenty of promise as a sprinter

    Japan big time
    also wouldn’t give up on Norway
    think the going didn’t suit that one and possible O’Brien horse for Leger if they swerve the race with Japan

    Two obvious ones maybe, Fox Chairman and King of Comedy, maybe not so obvious Constantinople nearly won the King Edward off top weight and is progressing with each run

    Agree about Fairyland FF (I’m biased cos she’s in my TTF) – did really well for one that’s suddenly been dropped fron 8 to 5.

    Ventura Rebel. Should’ve stayed in the longer Coventry Stakes rather than go for the sharper Norfolk.

    Agree on King Of Comedy who had Sangarius well beaten in one of his earlier races, He’s already put Too Darn Hot and Phoenix Of Spain out to grass and he’s getting better every time he runs.

    Have to give a mention to Angel’s Hideaway who ran a cracker to be 3rd to the colts in The Jersey Stakes this afternoon, she has been very highly tried by John Gosden this year and hopefully once back amongst the fillies she will get the win she truly deserves. :rose: Jac

    Agree on Norway Nathan, still very keen on him for The St Leger.

    Stylehunter – No luck at all in Hunt Cup, and would have won but for slow out the stalls, and no luck in running.

    Almost Midnight – Given a careful ride in The Queens Vase, but fared much better than expected, and probably a better horse than connections thought. Should have a big prize in him.

    Red Epaulette – Caught the eye in The Windsor Castle, and though maybe doesn’t have as lofty targets as the winner, he should have a bright future.

    Numerian – Turf debut in The Britannia, and fairly motoring at the finish, after traffic problems. Another who’ll be winning decent races.

    Japan – looks like an improver.

    Fox Chairman – looked unlucky to me. One for the notebook.

    Daahyeh – impressed by her finishing effort. Looks to have more in the locker.

    Sangarius – onwards and upwards for him most probably.

    Fair shout VTC on Numerian.

    Japan, Fox Chairman + King of Comedy the blatantly obvious ones.

    Momkin didn’t have a great passage in the Jersey by any means, when his chance was gone Atzeni didn’t touch him. I’d argue he was value for a length or two better than his finishing position.

    Eagles by Day- beaten rather easily by what could be a top horse. He shaped very well and given his pedigree he might well be one to improve for even further. St Leger 20/1 not the worst in the world, for all Ballydoyle will probably have something up their sleeve as per!

    Dee Ex Bee- now he’s proven over the trip, a more attacking ride will certainly suit him.

    Move Swiftly- being by Farrh she probably enjoyed the ground, but i think she’s good. Could be one of the top fillies going forward.

    Will be looking over this more i reckon this evening.

    Hindsight is 20/20 so make the most of it!

    Well I agree on Momkin, I’m still annoyed at the ride actually. He wouldn’t have won obviously but he should’ve finished in the top4 and been in the EW money for me. C’est La vie as they say….

    Glasvegas in The Windsor Castle for me.

    Dream Of Dreams finishing like the proverbial train to collar Blue Point just after the line …. am always a sucker for a flaxen haired chestnut!
    Nagano Gold, very unlucky at the start.

    Brothers Capri and Cypress Creek going down to the start together was eyecatchingly pretty. They look like they should be in the circus.
