Foyleswar,

I think you know i'm a massive fan of Ten Sovereigns, i posted 5/1 was far too big for this race several weeks back (on my lay thread). No point in me selecting anything else Happy

Good luck.

Calyx out with a leg injury

I like Khaadem too; Its a pity he had that setback prior to the Middle Park but his comeback was good and he will be representing Calyx's form at 2.  Only problem is that Hamdan may have a better one in Jash who I think might beat Ten Sovereigns this time round. Hills thinks a little cut might suit Khaadem, so that would be my choice if it come up that way on the day. I think both will run.

Foyleswar,

No i didn't, i still don't have my new Svenska account in place and the .de site (that i'm using to post on here) doesn't have any UK horse racing markets anyway. I can always contact my brother in UK to place a bet on my behalf (and have done in the past) but like most if us, i never expected Calyx to get beaten a couple of weeks ago, so i didn't call him.

I may take a 3 day weekend and come over if TS runs, but in any event, i will be backing him.

I think Ten Sovereigns (TS) is very short given he only beat Jash (J) about 1/2 a length, and J is 4x bigger in price; Hermosa in the Coronation Stakes represents better value than TS to me.

Lady Kaya fractured a leg and had to be put down. Very sad. RIP

Ten Sovereigns is a lay for me

Terrible price

The chance for Ten Sovereigns to prove he was in fact the best horse in the Guineas, albeit not the best miler Wink. I don't think he's as fast as the same yard's Caravaggio a couple of years ago but he doesn't face the same class of opposition.

Rubbish from TS. There are those who will say he was always overrated. I'd say he's gone backwards but I still wouldn't write him off completely, I still think he could come to hand for one of the big sprints ahead.
Report Lairy Mary June 21, 2019 4:14 PM BST
I think he’s a miler who was inconvenienced by loose ground and making his own running in the Guineas. Why did they hold him up today?

Very disappointing to see bot Middle Park protagonists underperform.
Report Figgis June 21, 2019 4:20 PM BST
Howellsy, not too surprised with Jash as thought he probably excelled himself in the race last year, comeback was uninspiring.
Report Howellsy June 21, 2019 4:28 PM BST
Big admirer of Crisford and thought he'd have the horse back to his peak over 6. But as you say, both required a leap of faith to an extent - albeit not as much as the winner.
Report Figgis June 21, 2019 4:35 PM BST
The obvious reaction is to say the Middle Park was no good, but on this occasion I'm unwilling to downgrade it, I still think it was solid form. TS could just be another fast 2yo gone backwards and continue to be a money spinner for the layers. He'll be a better price though next time and I'd be willing to give him another chance.

Never been keen on TS head carriage - had everything in his favour today against a poor lot but got stuffed.
I wouldn’t be giving him any more chances.

As has been pointed out elsewhere TS just didn't stride out the same today as last year. It was also pointed out on TV how poorly he was walking. Before the race O'Brien had only said the horse "seemed" well. Easy to say now but TS just didn't seem as well physically as before. Could possibly be just a minor niggle that will sort itself out in time or the sign of a more serious decline.
