Couldn’t have been more impressive winning the Group 1 Poule D'essai Des Pouliches at Longchamp on Sunday. Went to the line under a hold to win over the 1600m and will take beating in anything she contests this season. Won’t be big odds but should beat the fillies.
World-class racehorse who will need to be just that to beat freakish Frankel in the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes over 1600m at Newbury this Saturday. With Henry Cecil’s wonderhorse suffering an early season setback, though, he could represent outstanding value. Has won 6 from 10 and chased home Frankel three times. You will get a great run for your money.
Turned in an excellent run when sixth in the Kentucky Derby and, while it’s hard to imagine him turning the tables on winner I’ll Have Another and runner-up Bodemeister in the Preakness, is worth throwing into multiples at big odds. He’s been working in great heart since before the Churchill Downs run and is reported to be in great shape. Trifecta chance at Pimlico.

Consistent mare who was a slashing sixth at big odds to Whale Capture in the Group 1 Victoria Mile at Tokyo on Sunday. Continues to turn in very good runs and yet is regularly sent out at a big double figure quote and it looks only a matter of time before she goes the extra couple of lengths and causes a major boilover. She was less than three lengths off the winner on Sunday and can win a suitable race soon.
