No Tip today.
Race to watch:
A couple of horses running that look potentially useful prospects, slight concern is they have not ran for a while. Valcartier looked very useful when winning his maiden in April, he runs today 2:40 Windsor, this horse could be well handicapped, and the 7/4 he is generally trading at, looks fair. I will wait and see how the market goes, as a couple of his opponents are dangers, and I hope he may ease in price.
Ride of the weekend:
This has to go to Seamie Heffernan, for his ride yesterday on Capri in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby. A very good race with the first three home passing the line together. Capri rallied to win by a neck, after looking as though he would be passed by both Wings of Eagles and the late closer Cracksman, Seamie never looks flustered when riding, he is very cool.
Ryan Moore had the pick of the Ballydoyle horses in this Group 1 event, with Seamie riding what appeared to be the lesser fancied of Aiden O’Brians more fancied two in the betting, of his five runners in this race, Capri was given an excellent ride to win. Seamie was seen at his best recently on Idaho when winning a Group 2 race at Ascot, and the Ballydoyle trainers praise was that Seamie is a world class jockey. Once again the Ballydoyle band wagon rolls on.
