    I have fancied Moonlight Romance all the way for this but wanted to see how Shang Shang Shang got on.

    Moonlight Romance was the only one to give today’s Norfolk winner a race on debut. She then went on to race over 5F at Belmont and won without coming off the bridle really.

    She seems to get 5F well and has plenty natural pace. In this easier race than the Norfolk, I can really see her coming home a few lengths clear.

    After the drift on Ward’s runners, I reckon 5/1 looks likely to be taken, as the rats get back on board the ship.

    Happy with Moonlight Magic 5/1

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

    With Moonlight Magic pissing up last time and being beaten by Shang Shang Shang, I too was waiting.

    Now SSS has won, I’ve backed Moonlight Magic for Saturday.

    Queen Of Bermuda 15/2

    Really like this filly, she has to go very close here.
    Second on debut to Shades Of Blue who went close in the QM, then came out and bolted up twice in good style. Must be well thought of at Haggas’ going off Fav on debut and Doyler up is no bad thing.

    I’ve just watched a replay of Junius Brutus winning last time and he’ll do for me each way. Went a really good clip and won with plenty in hand, so the addition of a tongue tie is interesting

    I’m another on the American horse’s wagon here: 13/2 looks very fair seeing as the form has been franked from her debut.

    I’ve also backed both the Amy Murphy horses e/w at big prices. I was impressed with Kapono at Goodwood and Thegreatestshowman finished 3rd in a red-hot maiden at Newbury on debut. You can put a line through his Pontefract run (soft ground/6 furlongs) and a return to a quick surface last time saw him win readily.

    Moonlight Romance 13/2
    Kapono 40/1 (e/w – 5 places)
    Thegreatestshowman 100/1 (e/w – 6 places)

    I’ve gone in again on Moonlight Romance at 13/2.

    A lot of punters will not have seen her last win and it is a rare example of a horse barely coming off the bridle in a 5F sprint.

    This was her win:-

    The jockeys hands never come of her neck and the third in that race won tidily stepped up 6F at Belmont next time.

    Drawn 28 of 28 would be a question I suppose but she looks fast and came away last time for next to no urging.

    Moonlight Romance 5/1 and 13/2.

    The Haggas filly needs respecting but the trainer is having little joy at the Royal Meeting generally.

    Good luck.

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

    Queen Of Bermuda looks an interesting sort and Haggas was keen to run her in this race.
    At a price, 20/1 I’m having a go with Dom Carlos. He won his race at
    the Curragh quite cosily and I think there could be more to come from the O’Brien colt.

    The American horse was beaten coming out of the stalls but my word Dom Carlos has flown from the rear late on, would have got there with another 50 yards.

    He (Dom Carlos) absolutely flew Charles. He was just about last with a furlong to go,
    I just wish he had held a handier position earlier on. He was still good to me E/W.
    He reminded me a bit of Librisa Breeze with that late surge. I think he’s up
    to winning some good sprints, but he’ll need the luck if he has such exaggerated
    tactics.

    Moonlight Romance looked nervy in the stalls and completely fluffed the start. It was game over but she didn’t look fast enough anyway. It was the same sort of performance that Chelsea Cloisters put up and Welsey Ward has had a poor show from his fillies this year.

    It’s been odd that they just haven’t trapped well and been able to get away swiftly. They have actually looked clueless at the start, which is unusual for his juveniles.

    Only Shang Shang Shang and Stillwater Cove have been like the Ward horses of previous years. Stillwater Cove trapped like Ballyregan Bob but went off at a lick that meant she would not last.

    Oh well.

    Well done anyone who had the winner, he was never on my radar.

    I was shocked to see Van Beethoven here. I have said the last twice he ran that he looked a 7F horse and I thought he was an awful price dropped to 5F and Aidan got his answer big time with the horse looking totally out of his depth at the minimum trip.

    Queen Of Bermuda was one I couldn’t back purely because William Haggas never seems to land anything big. He drew a blank at Royal Ascot last year and is running out of time to avoid the Golden Sombrero of double ducks.

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

    WInner was impressive I thought, racing on his own on his side.

    Good to see Archie Watson with a RA winner so early, think he’s a serious talent myself.
