Captain's Blog - Wednesday 20th June 2012

Frankel was sensational yesterday at Royal Ascot. I have always said that he has only ever run one decent speed figure in his life, that coming in last year’s 2000 Guineas, now he has chalked up another big one and it is hard to see him being beaten over a mile this year. I have no idea how he will fare over 10 furlongs, but there has to be a good chance that he will be unbeatable over that trip as well. Is he the best in the world? Probably, but there is an Aussie sprinter running on Saturday who may have something to say about that.

My selections yesterday were rubbish. Today I am firing a two pronged assault on the Ascot card. First up I fancy Cai Shen in the Royal Hunt Cup. He has been running well on the all weather and was a good third in the Britannia last year proving he is effective at the track. He is a fair each way price at 16/1 ( Ladbrokes ). My second guess up is Aljamaaheer in the Jersey Stakes. I was really impressed with his Listed win last time up, he is open to improvement and the Roger Varian trained horses are in excellent form. He can be backed at the moment at 5/1 with a number of the firms.

I hope you enjoy all of today’s action which of course includes Kempton Park this evening which I will be presenting with James Willoughby as my guest. If you have any Ascot thoughts or indeed anything you want to share with us please do get in touch. As ever the address is We look forward to hearing from you.

For now the lawn needs cutting and washing needs to be hung out. A man’s work is never done! See you tonight on the live Kempton show, there is nothing like some Sunbury synthetics on a Wednesday evening.

All the best.
