Tanya's Blog - Tuesday 29th May 2012
I’m amazed Camelot is still 8-11. Is there a secret supplementary stage we don’t know about? Shouldn’t he be 1-3 or even shorter? What is going to beat him? On all known form it isn’t any of his rivals! Could it be the worry he won’t stay or act round Epsom? I think the best thing to do is back Main Sequence in the without market and be done with it.
Then I see Coral are giving a blinding Evens about St Nicholas Abbey in the Coronation Cup, those lining up against him are hardly oozing confidence. Checking the Investec Oaks field, I’d fancy laying the front two in the betting; Maybe and The Fugue after the skinners in the Irish 1000 Guineas.
Instead Vow could well give William Haggas his second Oaks and I’ll have a little saver on Betterbetterbetter, who was caught out in bottomless ground at Chester and could be a totally different prospect if allowed to take her chance on Friday.
Take a quick glance at yesterday’s blog; who would want to be a bookmaker these days, especially at Ripon this afternoon? It looks as though favourites could oblige in all but two of the races.
Hayley Turner, who is no doubt unfazed by her first mount in a Classic, and will be short odds to gain a quick double at Ripon. I am banking on the fact that she does.
Very wisely Mark Johnston has snapped up the services of Mirco Demuro, who has visited a few winners’ enclosures on his trip to these shores. He could win on maiden Courtesy Call in the 5.00.
And finally, if you enjoy the blog but haven’t yet subscribed to the channel, check out this offer that will refund any new Sky subscribers their annual subscription (worth £240) should Hayley Turner ride a Group 1 winner this season in the UK.
