Overall a pretty good week which started off very well, notably with Latharnach repaying my advice of looking at the 22/1 without the red-hot favourite, Gleneagles, as he pounced late to grab second. The other highlight was Trip To Paris winning the Gold Cup at 12/1 having been the main each-way advice for the race and Illuminate was a fairly confident shout in the Albany Stakes winning at 4/1 but not so good towards the latter end of the week leaving me with a feeling of what might have been, especially as The Grey Gatsby looked all over the winner of the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes but couldn’t get a run until too late after being hemmed in Dettori on the third between 5f out and the furlong. Otherwise I am sure he would have won a minute.
Other winners to receive good write ups were Acapulco (I hope you got the 11/2 before she was heavily punted in), Mahsoob in the Wolferton, Solow in the Queen Anne with the second, Esoterique, as the each-way play, Rizeena each-way made a slight profit in the Duke Of Cambridge, GM Hopkins and Interception were shortlisted for the Hunt Cup and Wokingham and Oriental Fox was suggested as save material in the Queen Alexandra at 9/1 before being punted in.
Close but no cigar for Muthmir and Found plus Opal Tiara won the Windsor Castle on her side of the track but ala the pace was low as she could never land a blow.
The next meeting I will cover is Glorious Goodwood.
