Irish Derby 29 June 2008

Frozen Fire (RP - 123+) takes an eventful Irish Derby in which Alessandro Volta (RP - 119+) swerved violently across the field. I suspect Frozen Fire may not have won otherwise.

US Group 1 races from Belmont & Hollywood 28 June 2008

Mother Goose Stakes (Belmont).

Music Note (RP-110) may have been a little fortunate in this race. Proud Spell (RP - 107) was hampered at least twice and yet was disqualified.

Suburban Handicap (Belmont)

Frost Giant (RP-117) in 40/1 surprise

Hollywood Gold Cup.

Mast Track (RP-120) wins this nicely turned a route race in to a sprint race.

Golden Jubilee Stakes. Kingsgate Native (RP - 124) wins nicely. ex Nunthorpe winner at 2yo beating all aged runners so ridiculous price 33/1?

Royal Ascot 18 June 2008

Jersey Stakes - Aqlaam (RP - 117) wins cozily but nothing special

Royal Ascot 17 June 2008

Queen Anne Stakes (Haradasun) (RP - 123) probably a lucky winner.

King's Stand Stakes (Equiano) (RP - 119) A Spanish SHOCK.

St James's Palace Stakes (Henrythenavigator) (RP - 128+) big problems with reins and the horse did it easily Ravens Pass (RP - 126) came a commendable 2nd a Breeders cup candidate in my opinion.

Coventry Stakes (Art Connoisseur) (RP - 113+) From last to first in a blink of an eye.

Ascot Stakes (Missoula) (RP - 92) 2.4 miles and blanket finish. Brilliantrace but pretty crap figures.

Windsor Castle Stakes (Flashman Papers) (RP - 102)

The Derby (Epsom) 7 June 2008

New Approach (RP - 126) was in sensational form moving to the classic distance. New Approach had recently been outpaced by Henrythenavigator (RP - 126) over a mile. The world ratings will be interesting when published.

Coronation Cup (Epsom) 6 June 2008

Soldier Of Fortune (RP - 124+) won the Coronation Cup at Epsom. The runner up Youmzain came with a rattle at the end and. I would like to see Youmzain contest the longer distance cup races where the bridesmaid tag may be forever discarded.

The Oaks (Epsom) 6 June 2008

Look Here (RP - 120) wins the Oaks at Epsom. Previously beaten by Doctor Fremantle who has since recorded a fourth in the Derby. This is a marked improvement and looks a sure bet for the Irish Oaks. Look Here handled the the distance very well and yet i see her as a 10 furlong horse with this speed.

Prix Du Jockey Club (French Derby) 1 June 2008

Vision D'Etat (RP - 122) takes the French Derby. Natagora surprised me by staying on for 3rd but I think the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood. Or one of the Big 1 mile races at Royal Ascot would be her forte.
