    One of the most interesting races of the year and no one offering me insights as to how to lose my money? Shame on you.

    For  the little its worth I think Vital Equine ew may have some merit. I thought the ride at Newmarket was unusual at best and a mistake at worst( I favour the latter)  I can see no reason for Duke of Marmalade to reverse form and whilst Cockney Rebel looked a very good horse indeed perhaps 5/4 is a little short in the circumstances.

    I agree with you. If there is any value in the race it is him, but I find it hard to have a bet as the Curragh is no friend to the front-runner. A watching brief, I think.

    Steve Harley (who is involved with the Huffer runner and was very bullish before it won at Newmarket) has just been on radio 5 but he thinks the best bet today is 230 bev Pivotal Express.<br>

    Looks straightforward to me.<br>Cockney Rebel has the best form in the race, and I can see no reason why he won’t run to it. Can’t really see anything improving past him, either.<br>Obvious choice, and his price reflects it, but there are many worse 5/4 shots.

    I’m sticking with Vital Equine, more out of fear that he will improve enough to hold off the rest than anything else.

    No reason to suppose Cockney Rebel will not be thereabouts but, having looked at it in detail today, Creaghadoir, at 10/1 on bf, looks the bet.

    Good luck to Cockney Rebel, but the 33/1 received at Newmarket pre race on the english Guineas winner is eminentley more fanciable than 5/4 at the Curragh today.<br>Creaghdoir back at this trip with a course win as well under his belt is interesting. Bolger will surely be looking to get something out of the Irish Guineas as compensation. (small win bet)<br> Some obscure form lines might also come into it with two huge outsiders having raced against the likes of Asiatic Boy and Teofilo in the last year.<br>Traffic Guard and Trinty College will be my place bets. They arent that badly drawn either, away from the main action.

    Not to mention 7/4 shots; quite amazing to see him at that price.

    You really have to feel for Teofilo and Jim Bolger, (And our own David Johnson:cool: ). <br>JB has always thought, and said, that the horse is superior to Creachadoir, which makes him some animal on recent form?<br>Let’s hope he can get him back on the racecourse soon.

    Ha. Reet, I’m no more disappointed than any other racing fan, who would just to love to know where he would have finished in the Guineas and how much of a race he’d have given Authorized in the Derby.

    The winner looks a good horse. As pointed out on TV he was pulling early so to win well from a good horse in 2nd was a nice performance. Hopefully we’ll see him at Ascot and then perhaps a step up to 10F (he looks like he’d cope with that).

    This one is a nice horse with a good attitude. A pleasing win and form well and truly confirmed.

    I wonder, (as commented on down below), how the eccentric Mr Maudlin is feeling right this minute.:biggrin:
