Hey Striker, What are your thoughts on Forever William at Thirsk. He is in my tracker with your name next to him, so I guess I got it off your list?

Going is Soft and according to Accuweather there are showers during the day. It ran disappointingly on Heavy last year and its breeding does not scream out soft ground performer.

Doh!! Just seen your quote above!.

Maybe a wait and watch day

She settled today. She looked a serious filly.

Snow Lantern did today what Derab did when they met...pulled way too hard.

Also think Snow needs to go up in trip

Forever William will get a handicap mark after today's race [3.20 Thirsk]

So just a small each way play at 12-1 Bet 365

Though backed into single figures never got involved, though passed the winner on the run out after the line

Strange run showing early pace to lead and then eased by Boudot when headed, though the first two home were isolated on the opposite side of the track

Update

Western Soldier has now left the Graffard stable

I thought he ran a very good race. He is still a big baby both physically and mentally. He didnt know what to do when he was leading. Couple of cracks by Crowley, I think it learnt a lot. The first 2, I think time will tell, are a couple of decent animals. He ran all the way to the line and seems sure to be aimed at middle distance handicaps. I backed it, but only first 2. I consider it money lent rather than lost because I am confident this horse will win races.

A massive horse with the best to come, and understand he will now be gelded

I am pretty excited about this next "horse to follow"

Party House

Thought this Irish filly ran a lovely race against the two O'Brien colts in a listed race last weekend, and would probably have won if the trip had been a furlong shorter

She is in very good hands with Ger Lyons and will be a big surprise to me if not winning a Group race this summer

Definitely

Think she is a bit of value at 14's for the Gold cup

 

Search For A Song runs in a Group 1 today, but over 10 furlongs though the ground will bring her stamina into play

But this in reality looks a prep race for Ascot, having said that I would not like the horse to go off unbacked at double figure odds of 11-1 (4 places) with Bet 365

Malawi Mitigated Risk run in the same maiden tomorrow (2.55 Navan)

The O‘Brien horse already been smashed into 4-6 and obviously should win easily. The Weld colt goes up in trip and wears blinkers and will be a each way price around 10-1, so a better run than last time can be expected

The Fav had every chance but got nailed on the line, looks a 2 miler

Mitigated though had trouble in running disappointed but on the plus side his handicap mark now should be nice

yes be a Derby trial next 

Sir Lamorak did not run in a Derby trial due to the soft ground, but is still in the big race on Saturday

If declared the current 33-1 even though Moore will not ride looks tempting

 Impressive Win

Looked a lot more mature today,and also further evidence that today's run of Snow was not her true form 

Derab will try and win a French classic tomorrow [3pm]

Big ask but will be a each way price, 12-1 at the moment with 4 places

Forever William runs in a handicap tomorrow at Sandown (4.30) and is up in trip.

Already on each way at 13-2, current odds of 11-2

Malawi finished 2nd again yesterday in first time blinkers

Beaten by a well backed newcomer but finished clear of the rest, and as said above needs a step up in trip

5th!

Got a strange ride I thought bringing her solo down the outer, which she seemed to take offence to but hopefully the filly is Ok

Search For A Song is not running in tomorrows Gold cup suggesting that the above race might have taken its toll on her

appears very likely now that the Irish colt will go to Royal Ascot instead

and Ascot it is tomorrow [5.35] for Sir Lamorak

Win bet...currently a general 4-1

Did not make the cut and will be a warm favourite to win at Goodwood instead on Friday night, opened up at 13-8

Emporio is 100/1 for the Britannia!!!

Thats way to big a price for a horse who finished 5th in a Group 1 2 runs ago.

Yes it should have won its last race, where it was beaten a head in a maiden, but this horse finished 3l behind Lucky Vega, and 7l or so behind McSwinney and Poetic Flare, off level weights!!

Now its 100/1 in a handicap.

2nd!

Ryan Moore got roasted on social media for giving the horse too much to do..but he was giving the winner nearly a stone and would have won for sure but for hanging

Remains a nice prospect, could even be a St Leger horse

Is he losing it?

At Royal Ascot this week he’s had 20 rides so far, and ridden 1 winner - that being 11/10 favourite Love. Also worth bearing in mind that of those rides, 7 have been favourites!!

Yes he certainly is a “marmite” Jockey 

Not helped by the fact his main stable run too many good horses in the one race

For me the best rider in this country day to day is William Buick, and in the big races though I am not keen on him personally it is Dettori.

Agree re Buick mate. Don’t like how Frankie doesn’t seem to ride out a finish once he feels his chance of winning has gone.
