Just one Saturday winner that I can see, though a nice priced one at 8/1 for Highflying - well done. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Unless those behind in The Derby are absolute dross (and I strongly doubt that's the case), Desert Crown looks a horse to light up the flat season. To cruise past the leaders in such fashion at such a vital stage of the race is something I haven't seen for a long time. Credit to Kingscote's confidence. Let's hope he gets more good rides.
Mare Australis won at 7/2 in the 14.20 at Chantilly who was my nap.
NAP Tronador 5.15 Musselburgh. TST has another one, Business, in the 6.15..............bigger price.
Wikiwikiwgeels won nicely at Hamilton last week and can hopefully go in again today at Musselburgh. 6.45
Broadspear in the 16:20 at Goodwood.
My home addition is nearly at its end, with hopefully the City of Tampa approving the final inspection tomorrow. The only significant issue left is the floating bathroom vanity which looks like it was built by my brother as a child constructing his first Airfix kit. My brother is extremely badly dyslexic and has great difficulty both writing and reading instructions.
More Dilton's nap than mine, but he sure has a big chance
Nap Chantilly Al Hakeem
Chantilly lace, a pretty face, a pony tail........ won't get it out of my head all day now
5.15 Musselburgh - Annandale
Petite Rhapsody 17:02 Perth Nap
Great to see SMS win another Derby and with a horse that looks as though it could become a real champion. Also, congratulations to Richard Kingscote for being coolness personified and making it look so smooth. However, I suspect Rob Hornby will be what ifing for quite a while. With respect to the runner up, Desert Crown and Westover look like two very good horses and I’m really looking forward to seeing them run again, even if it’s not against each other.
Thus far my naps this month have veered between useless and hopeless and today I’m relying on Ascot Adventure in the 13.30 at Goodwood to register my first success of flamin‘ June.
Fashion Advice - 16.16 Muss is today's nap
Kimifive 3.50 Goodwood is todays nap,well done yesterday Highflying.
Hidden dimples 1.45C.
Ancient Rome Chantilly 15.00.
You just know the feeling when you think you think you have backed a Horse during the week at odds that at one time were 200/1 on bet 365 (I thought I did 150/1 [admittedly only a one euro e.w.] which is my usual stake) and fall off the settee with excitement when the Balding Horse got placed but your assumption turns out to be wrong. It turns out I didnt make the bet even though I told everyone I know to do place bets on long shots as there
wasn't much depth at the top of the betting and they won. I think I need to go on some life coaching course.
The next obvious race for Desert Crown is the Eclipse but he will run in to a stablemate who would start second favourite.
I have nibbled at the Jockey Club today but nothing sticks out except to say that at least there wlll be a Ballydoyle strong pace which is rarely a given in this Race and that may be designed to set up Ancient Rome but Ballydoyle cannot do tactic
Of course the much criticised Ballydoyle tactics set the Race on a plate for a Greenhorn having his 3rd start yesterday in the Epsom equivalent.
My nap is Mare Australis in 14.20. at Chantilly. Cruel to call a Colt 'Mare' but just like the Boy named Sue he learnt resiliency and is never far away.
