Long Shot Saturday

United Front is like many of the horses from the stable that look to me like they can improve readily for a run. He was disappointing last time but there is something about his action that I’ve seen before that indicated to me he is capable of much more. He should have learned from both his runs so far and 66/1 with 4 places is worth a shot.

So Perfect just wins. I’m a huge fan and expect her to win a group1 this year. Form with Advertise last year looks very good now.

3 Points win 5/1

If there is a horse that can cause a surprise here its Speak in Colours. He just looks to me like a horse that can improve this year and get involved at the business end in these races. He’s had a nice seasonal opener and will be better here. 50/1 is worth the risk to find out

Fighting Irish ran really well in the Commonwealth Cup here last year from the wrong side,, and although things didn’t go well for him after, he is down to a very good mark. You’d have to think he would be targeted here. 80/1 is massive

Boom the Groom goes well around here and arrives here this year on a very low mark. He is capable of getting involved here at a huge price on a going day. He will need thing to pan out for him here, but were getting a price to make it worthwhile.

Norway has been my pick for this since his better than it looked run at Chester. This trip is certain to improve him, as will the better ground. This race has been the plan since last year. 4 places is critical so we’ll go with the lower price.

Stone of Destiny, has plenty of form that would wipe the floor with most of these. If he is back to form here after a poor run at Easter, he just wins.
