    Thank you Jac for showing your great sense of humour again :heart:
    The trainer is indeed not too small of a factor, so I don’t quite understand why he isn’t taken into consideration more :unsure:
    Anyway I’m quite biased from Germany, as here those kind of “loser” trainers like him never win a bigger one, let alone a Classic..

    ..and also for Jason Watson this might be one or two shoe sizes too big, particularly coming out of such a long break :-( ?!

    Tom Marquand has named Domino Darling in his 5 to follow but not Born with Pride who he rode on debut.. Hope she hasn’t lost a leg.
    Jason Watson is a very good upcoming jockey but a lot of pressure on his shoulders for one so inexperienced
    I’d have gone with Rossa Ryan… :rose:

    I think Tom is boxing clever to keep the pressure off Born with Pride..😜

    So he’s probably a pokerface :-)

    Miss Yoda doesn’t look an easy ride but if she has wised up a bit over the winter she might come on a good bit and should stay. She is my second bet here at 33-1 (available at 40s elsewhere).

    Took 10s on Quadralatiral not long after her Fillies Mile win.

    That run just screamed to me Oaks filly rather than miler. Could see her perhaps being tapped for toe on Sunday but a big run would set her up nicely for Epsom.

    Errr…she hasn’t wised up at all. That was a bit of a horror show. Fair dues to her for getting up.

    I’ve cashed out on Domino Darling for now. Scoped bad and misses the trial tomorrow. Race against time to get a race in.

    Love looks streets ahead of anything else and if she stays will win easily. Not so sure she will stay though. She scooted away too quickly in the Guineas and I can see her dropping back to 10f after the oaks. Can see her being another minding or winter running up a sequence but at 8 and 10f. She may still win the oaks but Aiden May well have other contenders too. Hard to judge quadrilateral. If she wasn’t fav last time you’d say it was a good oaks trial but thought she would have gone past the second. This season is going to be so hard with the truncated season.
