Not a very good first day for me!!!
But today is a new day. Secret World looks somewhat overrated due to the jockey booking of Frankie, and the highly progressive Levera looks a far better bet at 10/3. I was extremely impressed with him at York after such a short lay off, and he looks the business to me.
Soviet Song looks unbeatable to me in the Windsor Forest. Echelon looks a Group 3 horse at best and is the lay.
I was so impressed with David Junior in the Champion Stakes last year, beating a very decent field very well. I was not at all impressed with Electrocutionist in Dubai, which may have been down to him not liking the dirt, but he seemed to go very well on it in his prep run. Godolphin have said they are 2 weeks behind schedule and that Electrocutionist has missed gallops. I heard that Proclamation was their best hope, so Electrocutionist is the lay.
Roxan looked extremely decent at Beverley, and I have been taken by Callan and Ryan’s comments about her. By Rock of Gibraltar, she doesn’t lack speed at all. Gilded of Richard Hannon has raced 5 times, and is only at the level of Roxan, and may well have progressed as much as she’s likely to.June 20, 2006 at 21:41 #66092FlatSeasonLoverMember

Jackane I don’t know if you know or not but there is actually a mistake on the racing post website as Gilded is actually 5lb better en the RPR than Roxan even though it says they are the same. Roxan was very impressive fto but I am going to trust my ratings and go for Gilded. She doesn’t have as much scope for improvement, but has improved for each race she has run, is proven in the condition, has an experience advantage and so won’t show any greenness, is better rated both with RPR and my own ratings and is very consistent. Add to that she is a better price (4/1) and i am very sweet on her. I am having a 2pt win bet on her.
Soviet Song should win comfortably, she was very one paced on her return but she won’t need to be at her best to take the race.
Secret World won’t get any of my money in the 2:35 although Asset might; Levera is the danger.
In the 3:50 I cannot split Electrocutionist and David Junior. Bearing in mind the thread I started last week in which I was very complimentary about Electrocutionist, and given that he is a better price, I will go with Electrocutionist.
I usually do my money in 30 runner handicaps but I quite like Minority Report in the 4:25. I think he has the best of the draw, is very little raced, put up a career best performance and is proven over the trip and with the going. 10/1 seems fair to me, though money talks and Another Bottle is respected therefore.
La Mottie is the one I like in the last.June 21, 2006 at 10:17 #66093caravanParticipant

Royal Hunt Cup
my four against the field are
Dabbers Ridge<br>Pinpoint<br>Prince of Thebes<br>Red Spell
Dabbers Ridge is more of a 7 furlong specialist but the draw has been kind to him and the connections like a tilt at the good handicaps
Pinpoint has the perfect form credentials for this race and the run last time here over 7 furlongs after a layoff of 231 days should now provide the gelding with an ideal opportunity to win this race
Prince of Thebes and Red Spell are no slouches and may run into a placeJune 21, 2006 at 14:00 #66094ArtemisParticipant

I have HINTERLAND clear top-rated in the Royal Hunt Cup. That will do me for today.
