5:00 Royal Hunt Cup
Tashweeq is the type of lightly raced horse that could have something up his sleeve for this race. He certainly looked a group performer at 2 with some very good runs. He missed his whole 3yo season and then reappeared lately with a poor enough run on the face of it. He just seems to stand out as having potential and 50/1 seems a huge price.
Zhui Feng ran a great race for us in the Victoria Cup and may well be better over this trip. He is better of with the winner there and looks very likely to take a serious hand in the finish here at what looks a big price.

This looks a tight race apart from the top 2, of the rest I’ve settled on Furia Cruzada as the value at a huge price. There really looks to be very little between many of these behind the favs and she is as likely to get involved as a few that are less than half her price. 66/1 is worth the risk

I know it just looks like I pick the biggest price AOB horse and go with it but I do like Johannes Vermeer. He is a classy horse on his best form and for me was eye-catching enough in the irish 2000. This step up in trip will suit and I think he won’t be too far away from placing here at up to 66/1 is a silly price.

Im afraid this is a no bet race and Pricewise has ruing the price on my selection Rain Goddess. If she was to drift back out to 12/1 or better id be having a point win, as she is a classy horse and I fancied her for the French oaks before she wasn’t declared.
I fancy 2 horses here at decent prices. Glastonbury Song wasn’t suited by the soft ground in the irish 2000 but should get involved here at a big price. Escobar looks to me to be suited by this drop in trip and fast ground and is also value.
½ Point win Glastonbury Song 25/1 Generally
½ Point win Escobar 25/1 Generally
