Saturday wasn’t wonderful by any means, however a 3/1 winner within the form of Rohaan and a positioned effort from Checkandchallenge at drifted odds of 12/1 made it a small however worthwhile day. As for the others, Give It Some Teddy was on the receiving finish of a horrible trip the place Duran Fentinman determined to seize the rail however sit far again, making it nearly unattainable to get a transparent run. Sonny Liston who was the primary choice was horrible and I will not be touching him once more.
The Prix de l’Abbaye is at all times an excellent spectacle and a race which might throw up an odd end result, similar to Marsha, Mabs Cross, Glass Slippers and even final yr’s winner A Case Of You, who all gained at round double-priced odds.
The horse I like for this has been nibbled at out there so is not a stupidly excessive value, however I nonetheless suppose she is an excellent horse if getting the race circumstances so I am going to nonetheless be backing her. TERESA MENDOZA makes the journey over from Eire from Kevin Condon’s yard and I can see why they fancy their possibilities of rolling the cube within the Group 1. She wants a powerful gallop to be seen to greatest impact so with horses who solely know a technique of racing like The Platinum Queen who will bomb off from the entrance, this race may very well be arrange completely for her. She’ll must run a profession greatest to land this race, however like I discussed earlier than some horses are inclined to run their greatest race on this race and the very fact she is an EW value I feel she appears a stable wager and a horse who may positively run into the locations on the very minimal.
There are some horses on this who I do like rather a lot however I’ve opted to go in opposition to. The favorite, The Platinum Queen is an apparent decide working off a low weight, has good type and is the one all of them must beat. Nonetheless, she is travelling for the primary time which may very well be a frightening activity for a 2yo and she or he has to show she handles tender circumstances, which is an enormous query to reply.
Mitbaahy is a horse I price rather a lot and it was good to be on the profitable facet of his latest win after getting some garbage rides on him earlier this season, I would love his possibilities however he’s drawn very broad and that’s typically seen to be an enormous destructive on this race.
