It wasn’t to be for Shufoog last night at Nottingham, badly hampered when coming with her effort and losing all chance. She’ll be winning soon so make sure you keep with her, Shufoog is better than her rating.
Something for everybody today, good flat racing and jumps.
The Oaks trial, 3:25 Lingfield is worth watching, this is a race where Ralph Beckett runs his top filly in, he's also won it three times before. Mountain Bell is his runner today. She won at Windsor last time out by ten lengths and looks smart, she’ll have to be though as Architecture is held in nice regard by the inform Hugo Palmer. Architecture wouldn’t be certain to stay the trip on breeding but has apparently done very well over the winter according to some of the yards stable previews.
The Royal Hunt Cup “4:15 Ascot” is a real pin stick job, however Buckstay is a reliable type for this type of race. He runs constantly well in big handicaps and everything looks right for him today. He should give you a decent run for your money at 14-1, ensure you get the 5 places on offer.
At Thirsk this evening Aberlady is interesting in the 7:05, now she's dropped back to five furlongs. Aberlady showed good pace over further last season.
