Saturday 29th July
Sorry for being a touch quiet yesterday, was travelled back from Yarmouth and very busy.
1:25 Newcastle -
Micheal Bell has Highlight Reel going here after being out classed at Ascot.
2:00 Chester -
The idiosyncratic Chester. Interesting to see how Buridan progresses from his winning debut at Windsor. Richard Hannon rated this colt. Well entered with a couple of listed races and earmarked for the Gimcrack. He has blinkers applied to concentrate the mind on this turning 5f. Can he defy a winner's penalty? That is probably the crux of the question. A number in opposition have something to prove. Connections will be expecting a bold show.
2:15 Newmarket -
Groveman needed the race on debut after a slow start he did well to run on and just missed out on a place. Hills gave this son of Holy Roman Emperor and entry for the National Stakes Group 1. That looks a touch ambitious but he should progress for that first start. Looks a tough contest.
6:45 Salisbury -
Harry Dunlop doesn't have many juveniles but Fighting Irish has ability. This son of Camelot ran well on debut and fancied to go well second time out at Ascot. That was a muddling race with the two leaders going a stride too fast. Not the easiest horse to assess but this is an easier task.
7:00 Lingfield -
Body Builder is one of the lesser lights from Hannon's stable. This is an easier task.
