A bad day at the office yesterday, as I missed out on two shortlisted winners (at 5-4 and 7-4 respectively), and with my best bet of the day, Storm The Stars, being outstayed when it mattered most, having looked the most likely winner at the 2f marker.
Hopefully I’ll have better luck with today’s shortlist, which is…
Curragh 3.40 Ballydoyle
Curragh 4.15 Air Force Blue
Longchamp 4.25 Postponed
Ballydoyle is progressive and has strong claims here but would possibly be bettet suited by faster ground given his action.
Air Force Blue shouldn’t be inconvenienced by the extra furlong of the National Stakes, but any more significant rain would be a concern.
Apparently there has been a lot of rain in thecParis area, and it’s unlikely that Luca Cumani’s charge would want it bottomless.
All three of these could win, but with the various goings currently as they are, I would be inclined to plump for…
Curragh 4.15 AIR FORCE BLUE
…as my best of the day. But given the weather forecast, a highlighted bet would appear the safest option as opposed to a 1 pt recommended bet.
