    See i thought that, but depending whic forecast you read, it’s not certain to hit the racecourse. A lot of it is mentioned as 40% chance etc. With the temperatures they are getting, it might not be soft.

    The ground is hard to guess isn’t it? Forecasts for heavy rain throughout the week, but 30 degrees lol.

    I was looking at this race with an eye to something that handles all ground. I wouldn’t like to be backing horses like, Limato, Tabarrak, Threat or Breathtaking Look until i knew the rain didn’t hit Newbury at all as they could well swerve the race completely.

    Threat being sold probably suggests what we know, he won’t make a top class stallion so CP don’t want him. A new trainer could revive him.

    Liked Glorious Journey and Dream of Dreams for this. Oisin booked for DOD’s seems a good booking too.

    While i don’t think that was a proper 2yo grade 1, i think St Mark’s Basilica has ran a cracker there. To my eye he looked all out over 6f, and will only improve once upped in trip. Promising horse + clearly well thought of.

    The form of her last run looked sketchy to be fair FF, and yesterday’s Platinum Stakes backed that up. She’s obviously just not that good, and was flattered by her G1 2yo win.

    Nice Jeff!

    Sonaiyla ran a cracker- Speak in Colours came to head her but he couldn’t but Glen Shiel snuck up by both of them! She’s a cracking purchase!

    So neither of my shortlisted horses turn up. Millisle will be tough to beat but given her massive performance off top weight in a decent handicap i’ll give Sonaiyla a go. I was shocked to see her run off 10st 2 the last time as i presumed she’d go straight into group races after her win.
    Given Music To My Ears is probably a 100 filly, that was some performance.

    I also find it quite interesting Billy Lee rides her ahead of Forever In Dreams. I presume he had first dibs, and FID finished close to Speak In Colours + is weighted better today, for all the ground isn’t ideal for her. She has some G1 sprint form so it’s a nice positive that he’s gone for Sonaiyla.

    each way.

    Pretty disappointing from both FF. So far, Cayenne Pepper hasn’t lived up to what i thought she was capable of!

    Shaped ok Dazzler without looking exceptional- Doubt he’ll be turning up at Newmarket regardless!

    The Saint Roi price is very appealing

    Very.

    I’ll be backing.

    Millisle was electric the last time, no doubt about it. But, Forever in Dreams under performed which left her formwise beating albeit easily a lot less. Wouldn’t back her at this price, though i see her as very hard to beat.

    There doesn’t tend to be more than 10 runners in this race, now this year could be different given what’s happened, but i think that does make it marginally attractive to have an e/w play. The issue is knowing what’s going to run.

    I really like Sonaiyla and i was very impressed with her top weight performance the last day, didn’t think she’d be able to. 5/1 isn’t a price i’d back her at though with Millisle there.

    Having just won a g2 and a g3 on the bounce, why run Speak In Colours? I wouldn’t totally rule it out given they went G2>G3 the last time but, i wouldn’t bet him antepost.

    The weather seems fine for the week, and that again wouldn’t suit Forever in Dreams in my book, so she’s easily swerved.

    The English handicap entries might not all show up, they are a concern as they’ve ran some very good races, but i couldn’t bet them now.

    The two on my shortlist are: Aligator Alley and Romantic Proposal.

    Aligator Alley ran a cracker first time out over 5.5f and wasn’t stopping, though predominantly his form is over 6f so it’s a minor worry. Punito Aurora came from the outside and flew home, while AA was running his race up the rail. Joseph’s were not flying then so it was some run. Hasn’t run since, i wonder why!

    Romantic Proposal, basically the same as Bobby, won even with trouble last time. Trainer knows his filly sprinters + wouldn’t run her if she didn’t do herself justice, alright, she has it to find on figures.

    Bobby, agree with you on Kaloor, was fairly eye-catching the last time + was well supported. Got a bump and had to go wide to run on, but all too late. Hopefully 2miles at Ascot will suit him.

    Menuisier is flying at the moment which is a positive, hopefully this doesnt turn into a big cliff horse.

    Bobby, McFabulous is an interesting shout! Wouldn’t be against backing myself at some stage.

    Loving pick yesterday Bobby!

    That race is very tricky today, even if you watch Powerful Ted back he cantered on the bridle when behind a wall of horses, arguably he could be a worry. Love Bigbad and think she’ll like the Galway finish, but couldn’t punt her at the price like you. Buttercup in theory is very difficult to beat, but she often finds one too good for me.
    I’ve backed On A Session and Flaming Moon in the Ahonoora. FM is concern at the trip, but I thought he might be worth chancing, his run the last day looked like the trip might suit But worth considering he was running in a group of 3 that were going no pace at all. Anyway, I chanced him but not overly hopeful the more I look. On A Session speaks for himself really.

    Good luck :good:

    I bet Born By The Sea also Bobby, I couldn’t make my mind up whether it was the ride, the horse stopping in front or a mix of the two lol

    Everyone’s allowed a bad week Mike especially at a tricky track like Goodwood. Still firmly believe you guys are getting very upset over a likely second place but anyhow!
