    Cracksman not running today. I’m actually glad. Dante and Derby too close this year. Means both my Derby picks (Cracksman and Eminent) go to Breakfast With The Stars for a warmup.
    update from the event this morning…

    John Gosden was bullish about Cracksman’s Derby prospects after the unbeaten son of Frankel was put through his paces at Breakfast With The Stars at Epsom on Tuesday morning.
    Cracksman, who galloped with stablemate Pealer, bypassed the Dante Stakes at York last week but was cut for the Derby after Permian’s victory provided a boost to his form, and is now no bigger than 5-1.
    Cracksman narrowly beat Permian on his reappearance in the Epsom Derby Trial, and Gosden reports that his twice-raced colt has improved since.

    “He’s come on a lot. I’m happy with him this morning and he’s full of himself in the stable yard,” Gosden said. “We didn’t supplement him for fun in April. The mile and a half will be right up his alley.”

    Cracksman is owned by Anthony Oppenheimer, whose colours were carried to success by Golden Horn in 2015. Cracksman, like Golden Horn, will be ridden by Frankie Dettori.
    Following the work Dettori said: “It was routine stuff but it all went well. The ground was on the slow side of good.”

    Gosden also confirmed Cheshire Oaks winner Enable and Coronet, a staying-on third in the Group 1 Prix Saint-Alary at Deauville, will represent him in the Oaks. Musidora winner Shutter Speed will head to France for the Prix de Diane.

    There was another son of Frankel in action at Epsom on Tuesday in the shape of Craven Stakes winner Eminent, who failed to meet expectations when only sixth in the 2,000 Guineas on his latest start.
    However, trainer Martyn Meade is confident his stable star can bounce back in style at Epsom, with the significant step up in trip cited as a positive.

    “I was absolutely thrilled – it couldn’t have gone any better,” Meade said after the gallop. “It didn’t go according to plan in the Guineas. I think this is his distance.”

    Eminent was partnered by champion jockey Jim Crowley, who was impressed by the horse’s demeanour.
    Crowley said: “If you asked me to pick a ride in the race I’d choose him. He was really relaxed this morning, which bodes well for the big day.”

    Hoping for Bassino to produce a shock in the 17:20 Brighton, 33/1.

  13. Mike N says:

  14. Kevski111 says:

    Miss Mo Brown Bear, 7:10 Kempton, Hannons only runner. Entered for some juicy races later in the year so must have shown something at home.

  15. Kevski111 says:

  41. mike campo says:

    Hi Team.
    I’ve being keeping my powder dry since the Guineas but have gone in quite heavily AP on Jack Hobbs & Limato, risking ground conditions, well being and possible defections in pursuit of a little AP value, which is quite hard to find these days.
    Diamond Jubilee – 5/1 EW ( Generally available this morning )
    July Cup – 11/2 EW, 1/4 odds, Bet 365
    Both races targeted according to Candy after getting stuck in the mud at Meaden in March.

    Jack Hobbs
    Hardwick Stakes – 4/1 EW, 1/5 odds, PaddyPower
    King George ( 29th July ) – 9/2, EW 1/5 th odds, Hills, S James.
    Arc de Triomphe – 12/1 EW, 1/5 odds, Hills
    Targeted races according to Gosden. Has changed his mind in the past but logical targets if keeping to his favoured 1 1/2 mile distance.

    Also have numerous EW doubles with Limato & Jack Hobbs across these races.

    Backed Cracksman EW, 8/1 for the Derby and lost my Crystal Ocean EW bet at 33/1.
    Well done to all recent winners and posters for keeping our Blog active through the summer, flat racing season.
