Notebook: Horses to follow June 1

IT’S Epsom Derby week… and without wanting to sound like an old fart, I do wish it was still on a Wednesday afternoon. Bunking off school early when I was a kid to race home to watch the race was part of the tradition. Anyway, Saturday it is, and this year the race has been …[Read More]

FROM last week’s list both LEAR’S ROCK and RISK ADJUSTED hit the crossbar by coming second. Lear’s Rock looked a little unlucky as he was forced to race quite wide at Epsom before storming home. A longer trip would suit. Risk Adjusted was badly outpaced at Ripon before staying on behind a well-backed debutante. He …[Read More]

These animals have caught the eye in the past seven days and might be worth keeping a very close eye on next time out… PLANE SONG (Michael Stoute): On his Windsor debut this chestnut Nayef colt showed typical inexperience for a first-time run until …[Read More]
