"In the Summertime"



Not many blog posts this week as been get ready for my holiday in Cyprus, starting today !

Unfortunately I wont be able to see the July Cup so any comments from any of you readers post race would be appreciated so I can get the feel of what happened in the race.

The race itself is a tough, I'm torn between Shea Shea and Society Rock as I supported both at Ascot and they both finished 2nd. Fallon is confident that he can turn the tables as Lethal Force had the run of the race in The Golden Jubilee and Fallon was his own worst enemy there. I don't think Sole Power will stay this extra furlong and he might not have enough cover during the race. Gale Force Ten is a major threat but I'm going to go with Shea Shea who has probably been prepared more with this race in mind than Ascot.

In the 1.55 at Ascot Goldream gets the chance to prove himself after his unlucky run last time out and this time he has the assistance of James Doyle who hopefully can steer him in the right direction.

At Chester Rusty Rocket is up against Sir Maximilian and with a 4lb weight difference and a draw disadvantage this time he may have to miss out to Ian Williams runner although El Viento could be a danger.

With so many meetings today there are plenty of new jockey and trainer combinations and over at York Kingsgate Choice doesn't have that problem and he must be a strong contender to make it three wins on the bounce with Hoof It likely to need his first run back.

Anyway I will be back next Saturday hopefully renewed and refreshed to take on the bookies once again.

Good Luck !!

  1. Lethal Force led from the break and gradually wound-up the pace to win making-all in a new track record time. The battle for 2nd place was between Society Rock, Slade Power and Shea Shea, with Society Rock getting closest to be 2nd in a repeat of the 1-2 from Royal Ascot.
    No doubt about it, LETHAL FORCE is clear best at 6-furlongs in the UK, and won this with about 4lbs in hand.
    In my opinion, Shea Shea is best at 5-furlongs and perhaps his Meydan win was over-rated by about 4 or 5lb. Slade Power ran another great race and looks to be on the upgrade.
