Race 1. (22:45) Sky Bet Hcp 1100m

Back Me

Hard to get away from 7 Jawwaal (Bet Now: $4.75) in the opener. This bloke has absolutely thrived this time in, winning 2/2 and each time he has been impressive. Won fresh at Doncaster before giving them a proper spanking over 1000m at Ascot down the straight there. Climbing up in the weights, but hard to knock the way he’s going.

Danger

12 Arecibo (Bet Now: $8.00) has to be respected. Son of Invincible Spirit that comes here off the back of a 1000m effort at Haydock where he was back in the small field. They crawled in front and really zipped home, so he didn’t really have much hope. Tempo will be more genuine this time around and is a leading contender.

Long Shot

The best version of 21 Hyperfocus (Bet Now: $15.00) is certainly capable. Hadn’t really set the world on fire this time in, but his effort at Ripon on Monday was quite good, without much luck either. If he brings his best, he is certainly capable, but it’s been a long time since he has produced it. But the effort on Monday was encouraging.

Race 2. (23:15) Acomb Stakes 1400m

Back Me

2 Cloudbridge (Bet Now: $2.50) looks to have plenty to offer and is the one to beat. Debuted at Leicester under Ryan Moore and he got better as the race went on, drawing clear late to win like a nice horse and run good time for the meeting. Buick takes over and though straight to Stakes company, he does look well above average.

Danger

3 Darvel (Bet Now: $5.50) has some upside to come. Kevin Ryan trained colt that was far from disgraced on debut at Haydock before going to Ayr where he took good natural improvement from the debut and bolted up. Stable has a very good record at this Carnival and this guy looks a likely type. The key and perhaps only real threat to Cloudbridge.

Long Shot

1 Broxi (Bet Now: $26.00) has been beating up easier opposition, but he has been doing it in fine style and is a knockout chance at odds. Last couple of starts/wins have come at Musselburgh when lumping 61kg and bolting up by nearly five lengths. Clearly a harder assignment here, but hard to knock a horse building a picket fence.

Race 3. (23:45) Great Voltigeur Stakes 2400m

Back Me

Beware the unbeaten horse, so on top is 3 Darain (Bet Now: $3.75). Just how good is he? Not sure, but hard to not be impressed by what he has done to date, winning both career outings, the latest when a short priced elect at Newmarket and he bolted up. The way he’s racing, he’ll eat up the extra ground here and has the Gosden polish.

Danger

6 Mogul (Bet Now: $2.80) is the only other winning chance. Somewhat of a pass mark in the Derby but bounced back to his best with a dominant win in the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood, putting his hand up as potentially a St Leger contender for the Aidan O’Brien team. If he is indeed to be treated as a St Leger threat, has to be winning this.

Long Shot

4 Highland Chief (Bet Now: $12.00) has more to come I suspect. Forget he went around in the Derby in that farcically run race. He went from that to the Gordon Stakes where he gave Mogul a real race and only went down narrowly in a very game effort. Not sure I could back him to win, but I think for sure he’ll fill a first four spot.

Race 4. (00:15) Juddmonte Stakes 2062m

Back Me

Mouth watering stuff this. I think 2000m is perfect for 5 Kameko (Bet Now: $4.75). He had excuses in the Derby before going to the Sussex at Goodwood when coming back to the mile, and he should have won. Simple as that. No luck at all, mind you some of it was his own doing. I think a truly run 2000m is ideal and with clear air, he’ll give this an almighty shake.

Danger

2 Ghaiyyath (Bet Now: $2.25) has the runs on the board for Charlie Appleby and is looking to continue a path towards the Arc. Hasn’t raced since giving high class rivals, notably Enable, a spanking in the Eclipse at Sandown in a brilliant showing of sustained speed. Good test here, but he’s the proven big gun at the moment.

Long Shot

Third pick is 3 Lord North (Bet Now: $4.20). Very exciting prospect for John Gosden that announced himself on the world stage with a commanding performance at Royal Ascot in the Prince Of Wales, beating up some world class animals like Addeybb. Good test here against some big boys and girls, but he’s a big boy himself.

Race 5. (00:45) Sky Bet Handicap 3269m

Back Me

The transfer to the Haslam team has worked wonders for 9 Solo Saxophone (Bet Now: $15.00). Gave them a spanking to win at this track/distance two back before going to Ascot where he was asked to lump 63kg and on testing ground, that found him when a distant third to the lightly raced Table Mountain. Gets weight relief and a proven track/distance performer. Hard to beat.

Danger

If 1 Volcanic Sky (Bet Now: $11.00) can produce what he does on the Synthetic to the Turf, he would take a power of beating. Didn’t beat a great deal at Kempton Park last time out but he spanked them, winning by just over five lengths under a confident ride from one of the more in form riders in the UK, Jim Crowley. Oisin Murphy takes over and despite the impost, is a leading contender.

Long Shot

Very wary of 6 Here And Now (Bet Now: $12.00). He won this race a couple of years ago and missed last year. First run from a long break came at Royal Ascot and I thought he was far from disgraced in defeat behind Fujaira Prince. Stable/jock have been electric since the restart and this does look a real target race for the gelding.

Race 6. (01:20) Sprint Hcp 1000m

Back Me

13 Pink Sands (Bet Now: $6.00) for me here. William Haggas trained filly that hasn’t done much wrong in two runs from a break. Beaten odds on pop fresh at Yarmouth but bounced back to form with a close up third at Sandown. The claim for Fallon certainly helps and does get the Winkers first time. Tricky race, but think she’s hard to beat.

Danger

6 Dancin Inthestreet (Bet Now: $3.25) is the pick of the Haggas runners I would assume given Tom Marquand is riding this girl and not Pink Sands. She contested a Group lll at York last time out and was outclassed when down the track behind Queen Jo Jo. Much better suited here, hard to beat…she is short enough though.

Long Shot

8 Sampers Seven (Bet Now: $7.50) will make sure this is a truly run five furlongs. She has got super early toe and will likely lead this field up, which is what she did last time out at this track/distance, showing good sustained speed to win by three in solid time relative to the meeting. Harder here, but she’s got the right racing pattern.

Race 7. (01:50) Sky Bet Nursery 1200m

Back Me

I’m really keen on 13 Pure Dreamer (Bet Now: $5.50) in the last. Richard Hannon trained colt that ran over 1000m at Sandown last time out and he rode the colt far too negatively, leaving his run very late when a fast finishing third. De Sousa won’t fall asleep on this colt and up to 1200m, a truly run 1200m, I think he’ll take a power of beating.

Danger

4 Churchill Boy (Bet Now: $5.50) is the one with upside and progression. Looked like he needed the run on debut at Windsor before going to Ascot when finishing off his race strongly when second to Mohawk King. Does he want a rise to 1400m? Potentially, but a fast run 1200m I think will suit him and start three, should know what the caper is about.

Long Shot

2 Perotto (Bet Now: $9.00) has to step it up a few notches but I like the way he’s going about it. Impressive win at Sandown last time out, albeit in a weaker Nursery than this, but he does have the runs on the board, hard race experience/fitness and I think rise back up to 1200m, the distance of his win three back, will suit.
