Tanya's Blog - 13th May 2011

Carlton House’s victory will hopefully bring together the nation, how wonderful for Her Majesty to have a viable chance in the Investec Derby. Epsom will be packed, not a blade of grass on the Downs will be available. A heinous crime but I still fancy MIDSUMMER FAIR for Mahmood Al Zarooni in the Classic.

On to today, rain is expected at the Knavesmire, yet there is no evidence of it just yet, there continues to be a brisk breeze which must have dried out the ground. Bill Barber, Lee Motteshead of the Racing Post are already working hard, Simon Clare of Coral is pacing the press room, Mac is coordinating the newspaper headlines for today’s programme and I’m just typing, desperately trying to find a winner. Both Johannes and Swiss Franc are surefire future winners. We need some now, HANOVERIAN BARON is a good a place as any to start. He won the race last and there doesn’t seem too much which would worry me lining up against him. Averroes has been quietly nibbled in the betting, so watch for him.

NATIVE RULER ran well enough when just touched off by Dandino at Newmarket and he should gain ample compensation in the Yorkshire Cup. PRIMEVERE was backed for the Oaks before her run in the Pretty Polly and although Flood Plain is a positive on the exchanges I stick with Roger Charlton’s runner.

As for the Eurovision song contest and the second semi-final, Jedward qualified, and their price contracted to 5-1, yet Estonia and Sweden ran much better and they would be preferred ahead of the Irish duo.
