3.05pm York Mr Chua and Frankenstella are both coming in off the back of recent wins, but they could be fighting it out for second here. Kaizer has only had eight runs on the flat, and his first turf run over 2m last time. He travelled well at Musselburgh and only lost out to Three…

1.45pm Haydock The early betting for this race has been interesting, as I think the market is right and wrong at the same time. Khaloosy and My Oberon both opened up around 11/4, but the former has shorted and the latter has lengthened. My Oberon beat Khaloosy at Goodwood last time and it’s a different…

2.50pm Deauville A cracking renewal of this Group 1 contest. Palace Pier was a cosy winner of the St James’s Palace last time but is a very skinny price here considering the ground is an unknown. Persian King has always been held in very high regard but I’m not entirely convinced by his level of…

3.00pm Newbury Runner up in this race last year, the rain has come and looks as though it’s going to continue to fall for Morando, who can go one better. Seen to best effect with plenty of juice in the ground, todays conditions should be perfect. Dropping down in grade from Royal Ascot last time,…

What next for Sussex Stakes powerhouses?

Billed as the race of the season so far, the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood had a couple of dimensions to it. Who is the best three year old miler, Siskin or Kameko? Plus are the three year olds better than their elders? Now we know the result, were either, or both, of those questions…

2.25pm Beverley Le Chiffre is a horse going the right way for David O’Meara having won his last two, but he’s yet to race on ground faster than good so today’s conditions will be an unknown for him. One who won’t be inconvenienced by good to firm ground is Helovaplan. Two of his three turf…

3.50pm Pontefract Heaven Forfend is the understandable favourite here, setting a decent standard, but he has been uneasy in the market this morning. One who caught my eye on debut was Liberty Power for Tim Easterby. He was slowly away at Thirsk and was being pushed along for the majority of the race, but he…

4.25pm Sandown Another one from the tracker today and that is James Tate’s Perfect Sunrise. She made a promising start to her career at Windsor when she broke a little slowly and evidently looked very inexperienced, running green and not quite knowing her job. But as the race progressed she got better and ran on…

1.55pm York Boccaccio heads the market here having scraped home in a handicap last time to remain unbeaten, but he has some task on his hands against some group class form here. Ventura Rebel was runner up to A’Ali at Royal Ascot last season before placing in the Super Sprint and he showed that he’d…

1.20pm York Tasaamuh has seen a lot of early money, but I think My Oberon is the one to be on here. William Haggas’ colt went straight into my tracker following his debut at Newmarket, where he was slowly away but travelled into the race with plenty of class. He should be all the better…
