RIBCHESTER (Best price 8-1) has looked a shade quirky on occasion but his run in the Guineas looks even stronger after yesterday's events in the St James's Palace Stakes and he won't mind if there is further rain. The drop to seven furlongs is no issue for him and he looks sure to gain a good tow into the race which looks ideal. He looks a very fair play given the four-place concession by some layers.
The Richard Fahey duo, Kocollada (Jamie Spencer looks perfect booking for her given run style) and York Listed winner Vona should both make an impact at big prices.
Her young trainer is going to be a star and she is interesting as long as the high draw is no issue as she is an uncomplicated ride which stays strongly.
In the hope that one or two hard races may have taken the edge off logical main danger Found, MY DREAM BOAT (Best price 9-2) is the pick in the markets without the favourite. Clive Cox is enjoying a good week and his Shanakill colt was caught out of his ground in Chantilly when the pace quickened. He is better than the bare result and will find conditions to his liking so is a sporting bet to follow the favourite home.
The form of Gm Hopkins' defeat of BATTLE OF MARATHON (Best price 33-1) looks useful with fourth home Decorated Knight winning since and both have good records with some cut. The Gosden team struck yesterday and their representative is 2-3 at Ascot so he should go well again. Battle Of Marathon takes some knowing but Adam Kirby compliments him well and 33-1 five places looks a fair bet for a horse that loves deep ground and stays strongly.
I'm also going to have a couple of units each-way on Radiantly given the company she's been keeping this season and the fact there are five places on offer with some firms. Rider Billy Lee looks to prefer her chances to the shorter priced Dolce Strega and the ground should hold no terrors.
