PLUS 36. ROYAL ASCOT.
Erlkonig scoped badly post race and this is a big blow to plans for the horse. He will need time to recover, possibly six weeks. You like to see your horses being able to give their all and you just have to draw a line through this run and especially so when you know how genuine this horse is. Tough day, the highs and the lows, such a leveller of a game.
Postillion and Coolfighter are the next of our German imports to go into battle this week. The former might need it while the latter should win !!
Royal Ascot 2 30. VERRAZANO should be well capable of going really close against the odds on favourite and his price is huge so 2 pts win at 9/2 with PP.
Royal Ascot 4 25. NIGHT OF THUNDER won the best 2000 in years and there was no fluke about it. I see no reason why he will not confirm the form with Kingman and with plenty to spare. 2 pts win and nap at 5/2 with PP.
