Got a text from Jack Hobbs.. He fancies his chances next week!
At the prices available only 2 horses interest me..
Jack Hobbs prior to run @ Royal Ascot over 1m2f in the Prince Of Wales Stakes on ground most likely too fast for his liking, was rated at the same level as Highland Reel, disappointed on the day, but had excuses with trip & ground conditions.. With likely easier ground than faced that day and the extra distance i can see Jack Hobbs turning that form around with the Coolmore horse at very attractive odds. 10/1 EW Skybet
The other i am VERY keen on is from the same yard.. Enable looks to be the best middle distance 3yold of either sexes in Europe, if goes for this race will get a Huge weight advantage. Gosden won the Oaks with Taghrooda before effortlessly landing this race in 2014, and i have little doubt that Enable is even better!! Concern is that connections seem keen at mo to go for the Irish Oaks, if they do so this race is only 2 weeks later. If Enable was to bypass Irish Oaks, would be my main bet, but until hear otherwise holding fire.. Enable currently top priced @8/1
