The Prix Du Jockey Club (French Derby) is run at Chantilly on June 1st.

I note that Natagora is running in this race, i thought that Natagora barely got the mile at Newmarket last time and feel that vastly different tactics will be needed for this filly to get the extra 2 and a bit furlongs. Anyway you can never tell, but this time i think the bet for this race is Each way on Achill Island. will have the ratings for this race later Sat May 31st. Natagora gets the rating but i am extremely doubtful about the distance.

Dante Stakes (York) - 15 May 2008

Tartan Bearer took this on the line. Frozen Fire looked a tad green at the business end of the race and i would expect him to reverse this in the future.

Casino Drive at Belmont 10 May

I was quite excited about this horse at Belmont on Saturday.

There could be an intriguing meet up with Big Brown in the Belmont Stakes.

I did not see anything to frighten Big Brown in this race but Casino Drive was only running for the second time and improvement will surely take place.

Italian Derby + Guineas and Derby trials races.

Today is a big day in Europe with the Italian Derby from Rome (Capanelle) and major trials for Derby's.

I like Permesso in the Derby Italiano at Capanelle.
Rio De La Plata in the Poule D'Essai Des Poulains at Longchamp.
Conference Call in the Poule D'Essai Pouliches at Longchamp.
Hebridean in the Derrinstown Derby trial at Leopardstown.
Carribean Sunset in the Derrinstown 1000 guineas trial at Leopardstown.

Any available video of these events will be posted later.

English 1000 Guineas 4 May 2008

French Filly - Natagora (RP - 113+) scrapes home.

Natagora barely got the trip in my opinion but did enough to win this.

The next 4 will fair better for distance especially Nahoodh who was flying with absolutely nowhere to go.

Kentucky Derby 134 - May 3 2008

Here is the video of the 134th running of the Kentucky Derby which was won by Big Brown (RP - 128) in a flourish from the final turn.

Unfortunately the second horse Eight Bells collapsed beyond the line having broken her front ankles and was humanely destroyed.

Kentucky Derby

The 134th Kentucky derby is run at 11:04gmt tonight.

This in my opinion is down to three horses. Big Brown, Colonel John and Pyro.

For Long shot bettors maybe something like Gayego, Recapturetheglory & Z Fortune would suit.

I will link a video of this race when available.
