PN: Big Zeb is the danger to Master Minded who is in good form. Much better since breathing op. Does breathing ops with about 20% of his horses each season. Woolcombe Folly to be ridden by DJ. Has improved a lot this season and surprised Paul. Loves good ground
DJ: Stepping into bigger league and will love ground.
AL: Not many fancied rides for AP this Festival.
MF: Will ride a lot of Nicky’s horses. AP is great at giving feedback. AP said he gave bad ride to MM at Ascot.
Will be strongly run race with French Opera and Mad Max. Big 2 to come out on top. Thinks this could be race of the Festival.
TS: Doesn’t like Somersby at all. Wrong race for him.
PN: Quick ground not a worry for MM. Just needs fast pace.
TS: Doesn’t rule out Sizing Europe. Thinks he’s a 2 miler so race will suit. Worried a bit about Captain Cee Bee – too fragile for race. (Hold on…Tom tipped it ante-post!).
PN: Paul is much happier about MM coming into the race this year. Looks amazing. Working really well. Thinks 7/2 is a massive price. (Interesting).
It’s break time….back soon.
