We were treated to a great day racing yesterday with Crystal Ocean just missing out to Japan in the Juddmonte. I think Day 2 can be another bumper day for Aidan with Precious Moments and Magical both well fancied in the Lowther and Yorkshire Oaks.
What’s The Story can continue his love affair with York in the Clipper Logistics Handicap and I like the chances of Fozzy Stack’s Piece Of Paradise in the Premier Yearling Stakes.
Liberty Beach will be the choice of many here with her only defeat coming in the Queen Mary at the Royal meeting. She was an impressive winner of the Molecomb and is the one to beat.
James Tate’s Under The Stars belied her fancy odds in the Keenland Stakes and looks open to further progress here in her bid to remain unbeaten.
The once-raced Wejdan looked like a nice type when winning a hot Newbury maiden and it’ll be interesting to see how she fares here.
Aidan’s Precious Moments has yet to get her head in front but brings some string placed form into the race and could feature for an in-form team.
Selection: Precious Moments – E/W
Premier Yearling Stakes
Show Me Show Me just missed out in the Super Sprint at Newbury and then finished second behind the aforementioned Liberty Beach in the Molecomb. There are lots of unexposed types in the field but he must go close.
Fozzy Stack has obviously held Piece Of Paradise in high regard given the support for him in the market on each of his three starts. The addition of blinkers did the trick on his third start and there is more to come.
Mums Tipple showed clear signs of inexperience on debut at Ascot and with Ryan in the plate, he could take some beating.
Selection: Piece Of Paradise – E/W
Clipper Logistics Handicap
Kynren has been contesting some of the best handicaps such as the Lincoln, Victoria Cup and Royal Hunt Cup. He hasn’t been beaten far in any of them and although he runs off a career-high mark with any luck he can get his head in front.
What’s The Story was a course and distance winner off seven-pounds higher back in May. He runs particularly well at York and could nick a place.
The O’Meara/Tudhope team has been a force to be reckoned with this season and have a live chance with Baltic Baron here. He’s run well, on both starts since being gelded and looks like a horse with a nice future.
Selection: What’s The Story – E/W
Just the four runners here but it looks like a two-horse horse with Enable and Magical going head to head. Enable has won her last eleven starts and there is no doubt she is being aimed at a third consecutive Arc. Bearing that in mind Magical might be able to turn the tables on her old advisory.
It’s a race not to get involved in from a betting perspective and just sit back and enjoy two great mare’s do battle.
