I’ve tipped Just Fine in the past, but I’m not convinced by its shape and if it holds up. GaasseeThe shape of , however, holds up. He has won his last three games at Chester, Newcastle and Kempton. Trevolli was second to him at Kempton last time out and he’s had three wins in a row and had a couple of second places all-weather so I’m assessing that form. It’s hard to get away from Gaassee.


I think Dakota Gold will go on the side of the stand and Just Frank will do the same on the other side. This will drag the whole field with them. I wanted to be on whoever would follow on the other side and I landed on Wobwobbob for Joanna Mason and Adrian Keatley. He has great form on 7f and he ran well last time in Thirsk. The draw is key so I’m on Wobwobwob.

I am with Minzaal. Dragon Symbol is a very good horse but I think Minzaal’s preparation will be better for it. It only had two races last October and Owen Burrows will have turned it well. He might be more advanced than Dragon Symbol, so I’ll be on his side.



Emily Upjohn won by a neckline at Wolverhampton in November and she really impressed at Sandown in April, winning by nine lengths. Frankie Dettori sent her to the front early to teach her and she galloped to the line. I can see why Emily Upjohn is the favorite and highest in the market at Epsom Oaks, but I’m going for The Algarve.

She beat Native Queen in Galway in October, but neither has raced since. Hymn Book Too finished third that day and then finished behind on Tuesday (third in the English 1000 Guineas) in Naas in March. She was then behind Above The Curve at Leopardstown before beating Artistic Choice at Tipperary in April. Artististic Choice had chased the house (who won Group 3 Chester Vase last week) in Dundalk in early April. The form of the Algarve is strong in my eyes.

I am with mojomaker for William Buick and David Loughnane. He could have caught Al Barez at the line at Doncaster last month after starting late. He was only beaten on the nose and riding on a trip will suit him perfectly.

1:50 p.m. – Gaassee
14:25 – Wobwobbob
15:00 – Minzal
15:35 – The Algarve
16:10 – Mojo Maker
