Today’s Info 27th June 2015
It’s the 150th running of the unique Irish Derby at the Curragh and interest galore in there of course with Epsom form about to be tested again and that includes an Oaks winner.
Jack Hobbs is a classy act who has progressed massively in a short space of time and rightly tops the market based on the runs behind Golden Horn and leaves a few in here with something to find. That said I think he should be taken on away from home and after such a hard race in the Derby. If he wins you have to accept it and at the price I can leae him alone. Highland Reel has Ryan Moore’s nod it seems and a good run in France looks solid to figure but Giovanni Canelleto surprises me at the prices under Joseph O’Brien given the interrrupted route to Epsom was well documented and it was no disgrace to just fail in reeling in talented Curvy in the Gallinule following a poor scope.
Sent to Epsom in haste as other contenders left the slow maturer as the main charge for Ballydoyle and ran well in fourth without being cherry ripe in my view. Time has past and hopefully well in himself it is only right to expect more this afternoon and I think the value lies there. Ryan switches but if the price is a reaction to that it is a overeaction in my view.
Log Out Island is a bit short for a recomendation but has to be hard to topple in the Railway and I’m looking forward to seeing it out today and improving on the Ascot run where got a little bit of a throat cutter from the front end, 6f and this opposition seem a little below Hannon’s charge.
Tanzeel at Newcastle will be in plenty of notebooks when slamming a decent field at Yarmouth last summer, I don’t think it is unreasonable for him to take much higher ranking than this contest provides in the 2.35 and it’s worth chancing the fitness is there to perform first time back. Price is fair for that doubt to remain and if straight and no bad luck in running he should be scoring.
The Northumberland Plate this year is probably the last year I take a crack at it with it moving to the sand next year and beyond. That said it would be nice to land it once again and no surprises to regular readers I am taking Quest For More to go well under George Baker. Ready winner last time and seems now to have ironed out everything and can step up again as will be needed off the mark but a live chance once more.
Clever Cookie might well be up to defying the weight but the price is now slaughtered so I am happy to dig deeper and Resiliency could be a flyer at the bottom of the weights. Formerly with David Wachman and a pretty expensive animal has moved to Michael Appleby and given a feeler to aclimatise but is hugely unexposed and looks a likely improver for this test. The run behind Elidor shaped up nicely and I think at the rag odds a marked step up on that effort is not beyond expectations now.
At Newmarket the task looks pretty fair for Tahira who travelled with much more gusto on second run back this term and went in to the notebook for a similar race that day. Met one who got a pearler of a ride there too wehn finishing second and a similar run should be good enough but I think there is a bit more to eek out and Jamie Spencer should have the best horse to execute a plan with.
Hopefully a winner or two to be unearthed here and good luck to you all.
