    I’m always looking for a quirky bit of form or storyline when it comes to certain races.

    Sir Michael has won this race 7 times with 7 different jockeys. Step up Andrea Atzeni to continue that trend on Crystal Ocean to join the likes of Dettori, Moore, murtagh, kinane, fallon, piggott and swinburn.

    The form has to be there to contribute and his maiden win was more impressive than it seemed. He was in control all the way and was eased down to win by 2 lengths. The Dante form was franked and he was crying out for further. Strong race though, good luck.

    Crystal Ocean is a half brother to Sir Michael Stoute’s Hillstar who won…

    This race.

    Quirky enough for you Chivers?

    Quirky enough for a bet. Not quirky enough to win

    On at 7’s AP Ginge. But got a really, really sickening feeling about a certain Irish horse in this.

    Sir John Lavery I presume, Botchy? Has sope for further improvement, but has done nothing yet and needs to prove himself on the ground too. Albeit Coolmore probably had quite a few to choose from. He’s only joint second favourite in my book. This is my idea of their fair prices:

    Crystal Ocean 15/8, Salouen 7/1, Sir John Lavery 7/1, Permain 8/1, Best Solution 10/1, Best Of Days 13/1, Call To Mind 16/1, Intern 33/1, Khalidi 40/1, Glencadem Gold 66/1, Raheen House 125/1, Frankus 200/1.

    I’ve backed Crystal Ocean @ 5/2 and saved on Salouen @ 8/1 and Call to Mind at 20/1.

    Did you take the 7/1 immediately after the Dante?

    Seems quite a bit of market confidence that Permian is still capable of his best and with a slow pace favouring prominent runners quite likely… a third saver @ 7/1.

    Phew! Got away with that one.
    Crystal Ocean didn’t settle in the slowly run early fractions. Considering that, did well to keep on as well as he did for third.

    Peslier, Peslier, Peslier – you silly man. My run of near misses continues.

    The winner’s a tough horse mind.

    What did Peslier do wrong?

    Congrats Permian backers.

    The Dante form is working out quite well, and the Derby doubters might have to rethink their evaluation of its quality. Although it probably isn’t a vintage crop, it certainly looks like it’s not as bad as some initially thought. I’m looking forward to the Eclipse and Irish Derby even more now.

    Nothing at all and I was on Khalidi at 20’s.

    Yep, just watched it back again and I was being harsh on Peslier. The horse was boxed in for a few strides at the top of the straight but to be fair to Peslier nobody could have ridden it much better.

    I retract my statement.

    Khalidi just needed another twenty yards.

    Yep, pretty much. I’d imagine they’ll go for the similar race at Glorious Goodwood next. Permian probably Voltigeur bound.

    Matt Chapman thought Khalidi should have scored comfortably.

    No doubt the horse will go off short next time but I won’t be on him. He’s been in and out all season, so could easily go off short and get stuffed.

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