ENROL might not have the best of the draw but she deserves top weight and the 43 day break is a big plus. She will go well. 1 pt win at 7/1 with PP and others.

ELIDOR was only penalized 5 lbs for his authoritative win in the King Edward at the royal meeting. He is not over big but rather a beautifully put together specimen of a horse and his ability to quicken is a huge asset around this track. Well drawn, he can get a good posse and use his kick to put this to bed. I feel he is best fresh also so the 43 day lay off is spot on. I expect a huge run. Bet 365 are a lovely 9/1 so a 1 pt win .

Some contest. You all know how high I rate Sky Lantern but I like another one even better and have we some price if my opinion is correct. Nick Mordin correctly awarded a monstrous speed figure to HOT SNAP when she floored Hannon’s grey superstar in the Nell Gwyn only for her to bounce in the Guineas itself. She has not run since then and comes in here fresh. She will relish the step up in trip and if [ big if] she handles the preliminaries and avoids pulling for her head in the race itself then she will prove almost impossible to beat. She is a super filly and I expect a wide margin win if she brings her a game to the party. I am having a 2 pts win at a mouthwatering 7/1 with PP and several others.

I love the chance of MEZEL in this nursery. He was coltish on debut and pulled very hard but was ultimately impressive the last day. He is small and plain and has a high head carriage so he has plenty about him not to like but his mark of 77 could look silly this evening. He can quicken and as I say that is critical here . It is a case of ” settle mezel” and if he does then he can win. 1 pt win at 9/2 with PP.
More soon from other meetings.
