    Frankellina in the Oaks. 

    Watching the Musidora back, literally everything went wrong: missed the break by 5-6L, didn't seem to want to get going for a couple of furlongs, and had to pass every horse to get anywhere near.

    To get within a neck of the winner was very impressive, and while it's fair to say we have little idea of the quality of the race, I strongly suspect she'll appreciate an extra furlong-and-a-bit given how she shaped.

    14s or 16s is a ludicrous price and I would snap that right up as she will almost certainly go shorter on the day.

    Edit: Definitely each way. There are several unexposed types here who could be a bit of anything.
  • Other races:

    2.00 - don't care, but possibly Oh Purple Reign at 6/1 offers some sort of value

    2.35 - a legitimate handicap offering value. I'll probably opt for Hortzadar, but Masham Star and Gossiping are attractive options in the low double digits, too.

    3.10 - Coronation Cup

    Not got a massive preview in my locker yet, as this is a race I'll be spending the morning studying (possibly sacrificing on price a tad). With nine runners I might look for some each-way filth just as Salouen was last year. That named horse is a no at the price, especially given the 0-9 strike rate in Group 1s.

    I don't understand why Communique is longer than Defoe in the betting, having beaten him well last time out. At 16s that's a tempting nibble, and I'll plump for him over Marmelo in my each-way search. While I like the latter-named, he'd appreciate a stiffer test of stamina.

    3.45 - Eleven-runner handicap a bit grim for places, don't much care about the race but maybe What About Carlo at the price. Mountain Angel for win purposes. 

    4.30 - already covered - Oaks. I think Anapurna, Pink Dogwood and Mehdaayih (that order) are all very likely types but no value really.

    5.15 - Ugh, Space Blues? Will give more thoughts on this (and a couple others) in the morning.

    5.50 - Blackheath for the name!! I think Corazon Espinado is very very handily weighted though too. Not a race I give much thought to, especially as I'm usually one or two pints deep by this point in the day.

    Good luck and caveat emptor, etc etc.
  • Be careful!!, i went there a few years ago and the only horse I remember seeing was a police horse :blush: the rest is a blur
  • Sorry, one more thing, I remember dancing to the Ghost Buster theme in the road :neutral:
  • Boooòooo.........

    Disgraceful treatment. Having to shut part of a golf course just so a few horses can run round and round and round.....
  • Splash of Blue Stratos usually does the trick.  
  • I'm there today....will take note of some of @PaddyP17 tips, given that I know the square route of f**k all about flat racing

  • Lol I went for all so Gossiping, excellent
