Round up of Royal Ascot:
It was good to see Godolphin have a number of winners over the course of the week at the Royal meeting. The whole operation has changed a lot since I worked for them, now they have numerous trainers running horses in the Godolphin blue colours, it used to be only Saeed Bin Suroor who had runners in those blue silks. Saeed had a nice winner in a group 3 race, and it was good to see Charlie Appleby have some success with his horses including wins for Rare Rhythm and Sound and Silence, who is a very fast two year old.
But the Aiden O ‘Brian stable once again dominated the major races, Winter and Caravaggio both winning well in Group 1 races, he has his horses in great health for the big meetings, he is out on his own as far as leading trainer in Ireland and the UK, and has been for a number of years.
One horse that stood out for his stable and the future was September, she was a convincing winner yesterday in the Chesham Stakes, and looks very useful.
No tip today, a few horses I am interested in but they are a bit short to back currently, I will watch the betting and if value appears could get involved, Symphony of Angels 2:50 Hexham is very short but it is a poor race and I may yet back him, if value in price appears.
