Fewer good colts this year definitely Chaos but overall most of the G1 winners have been colts with Mozu Ascot, Without Parole, Call The Wind and Dream Castle to add to Cracksman..

Echo all above….well done ANAPURNA & King JoniThings turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out...June 1, 2019 at 11:38 #1443960
I know Joni, but his only classic winners have been fillies. One of the yearlings has been named Warren Hill, now wouldn’t that be good if he/she turned out good.

Veracious reminds me of Anna Kournikova: Looks good, wins rarely

For tomorrow at Chantilly I have played the Frankel daughter Obligate.
She needs to improve for this a bit, and I am confident she willJune 1, 2019 at 23:03 #1444165
Good luck with Obligate tomorrow hein, noticed it’s Good to Soft at Chantilly so should suit her over Matematica.
I didn’t think Veracious would win today to be honest, she has a high knee action and she has never run well on Good to Firm ground. I thought Nyaleti would have the beating of her today but Veracious was well in front of her and Nyaleti finished plum last.
Hopefully we can draw yet another line under those runs and hope to see them at Royal Ascot.
So many decent horses finishing last this meeting Lavender’s Blue in the Oaks, Telecaster in the Derby and Nyaleti today. It will be interesting to see them next time out and how they perform all those runs were just to bad to be true.

Nyaleti finished lame Jac. Hope she’s OK but I doubt we’ll see her at Ascot. Some horses just hate Epsom so I wouldn’t write any of them off on the basis of their Derby/Oaks runs (having done so with Ulysses to my cost!). Don’t think Veracious liked it either but it should have set her up for Ascot. Hopefully she’ll win a good race before the end of the year.
Fingers crossed for Obligate todayJune 2, 2019 at 13:37 #1444295
Thank you very much Jac
The ground turned out to be good there, but it didn’t keep Obligate from winning as her class prevailedJune 2, 2019 at 16:29 #1444312
OBLIGATE remains unbeaten in the group 2 Sandringhm Stakes at Chantilly today, also SUN MAIDEN got back to winning ways in the Nottinghamshire Oaks

Well done with Obligate hein the Frankel gravy train keeps rolling on. Jac
I haven’t seen the race yet and hope to catch up before I go away.
Thanks Tonge for the feedback on Nyaleti. That explains her bad run and hope she is alright. Mark Johnston had a dreadful Epsom not for lack of talented horses..I know the feeling I backed most of them.
Agreed that we must draw a line under horses that did not fulfil their potential at Epsom and give them another chance. Veracious did also underperform at Newmarket and I would be more cautious with her but a nice galloping track like Goodwood could see her back to winning ways.
