After the downpour of rain yesterday, especially at Goodwood, big outsider won the Group 1 Sussex Stakes. To be honest I thought the ride of William Buick was very strange, he seemed to stop riding Ribchester about 2f out, for what reason only he knows why! He then decided to give his horse a smack with the whip, as the two who had passed him seemed to be treading water inside the last furlong, Ribchester rallied and was only denied by a neck at the line. I think he should of won, it was a major error as I see it, especially when £550,000 was at stake for the winner !
Back to today: My Free Tip as Follows-
Time: 6.55 Epsom
Current Odds: 15/8
This horse won well last time, acts on the track, which is important at Epsom. He has a 7lb penalty, but with Sylvester De Souza on top, I expect him to make all the running, and keep going up the home straight to win. Couple of decent opponents, Guvenor’s Choice probably the main threat.
