A really competitive card on the opening of the royal meeting ..In the first i like the look of Trade  Storm this lad has it on to do , but if getting a really strongly run race I think he has a great e/w chance....Reckless Abandon will come on a ton for his last race and looks sure to be involved in the finish....I think D/A is worth another chance , up until his last run were he showed signs of nerves he'd been outstanding , I'm taking a chance there will be no repeat of that horror show....Stubbs , I really like this fellow's  attitude , He has battling qualities that will stand him in good stead in this tough race ....

I'll be backing Jallota ew and Anticipated win in the 2 yr old races.

Looks a terrific card, as you'd expect.

Elusive Kate if fully wound up?, willing to take the chance apart from the fav the rest look pretty mediocre.

Kingsgate Native, why is Sole Power shorter in the betting?

Dawn Approach if relaxed biggest certainty of all time, can't believe 6/4 is still readily available?.

Coolmore 2yo's are never far off in this race Stubbs will do for me.

Midnight Oil, I'm sure Willie has been preparing this one for months?, huge ew price.

Windsor Castle not usually the strongest 2yo race at the Royal meeting, so O'Brien to win both 2yo races, Wilshire Boulevard.

Happy punting!.

Camelot to return to form Wednesday Silver?

i bet he'll turn the tables with Al Kazeem.

Agree Roar, they are too smart to run him otherwise. He doesn't have much to find thinking about the strides they have made from defeat to victory with the likes of Yeats and F&G in the past.

Having looked back on the race Joseph was hard at work well before Doyle said go on Al Kazeem.

I think Red Cadeaux is a huge ew price at 16/1?, a 2L 2nd to Animal Kingdom is a good a form any of them bring into the race?

This has been his target,Ye kinda get the Yeats feeling about this,Beaten in less important races when not fully wound up.
He'll be bang there when it really matters.

I'D WORRY about animal kingdom getting the mile at ascot , that uphill finish and wide open spaces and what might be a frantic pace might find him out ..The fact his trainer has never saddled a runner , never mind a winner in England , is to say the least , a worry....

Good to see ya posting WR.
Just on Silvergreasers post while i,m with Dawn Approach,won,t be that easy even if relaxed, not always reliable but on a line through Van den Neer, Magician is well entitled to give him a race.
Only other bet is Tiger Cliff 5.00, was impressed with him on his seasonal debut and the 2nd won a decent handicap since,6th that day has also won. Good but competitive racing, best of luck.

Good and bad memories the last time I traveled all the way to Sligo to catch Kildare play Sligo in a qualifier, Kildare were leading by 2 points with 4 minutes to go but Sligo mugged us with 1-1 in the final few minutes, apart the disappointment of losing we had a great w/end stayed in the Yeats hotel a few mile outside of town a small bay area cant remember the name I must have been sober?, maybe Rocketfingers will enlighten me.

When we went into town we found a small working class pub up a side street where all pints and shorts were €3, of course we made it our local for the w/end but don't ask me the name either?.

Good opening post from the great WR..........last time wr that I was in Yeats County it was to Markievicz Park, and it was a draw...Laugh and that's a while ago.

Pa, Hughes said in his column last Sat that Van den Naer would not get out of 3rd gear up the Curragh. So the form line that you feel a wee bit concerned about is most definitely suspect.I think the Irish 2000gns was a poor race, and the race he won in Chester was also a poor event though he looked impressive. I'm with DA and getting more confident by the minute. The late Henry was keen on Tiger Cliff, I read somewhere.
I wish I could be as confident about Camelot as some of the lads are, but remember he had that colic scare, and he looked very ordinary last time and I cant see why he should reverse form with Al Kazeem. He Seemed to just come and do Camelot when he wanted. I know Ted and Robert Hall were not impressed with Camelot, and yes I'm aware of the APoB factor, but I don't think he would wanted Camelot beaten the last day...its a tough call.
I fancy W Buick for top jockey and 12/1 with Powrs.

Coventry looks a cracker . Stubbs arguably the best Irish 2yo and that would normally suffice.
But Championship was hugely impressive on his one run and at the odds I'm going in e/w.
Strange they're running War Command who won fto over 7f.

5-1 Toronado looks a cracking e.w bet. Obviously have to take it on trust that he is over the problem that troubled him in Guineas, but the price allows for that. Dawn Approach is no star, Magician had the race set up for him at the Curragh, and a very bad classic it was. Backed Toronado last year, ante post for guineas & derby, and am not waning in my belief of him yet.
Laid Animal Kingdom in the first, and backed 3 e.w in Powers against him, with them refunding if he wins. His price and this offer gives it a good e.w shape. Went with Elusive Kate, Aljamaheer, Gregorian.
Was very impressed with Sir John Hawkins on debut. He has plenty to find to be troubling the judge here, and maybe he is not as forward or precocious a type as Stubbs, hence why Joseph takes the mount there, but I would have little doubt that Hawkins will prove the best of this lot in time, and hopefully he has learnt enough from debut to get home in front today.
Am pretty keen on both Mubaraza and Midnight Oil in the marathon, with a small few quid e.w on Suraj. Mubaraza will surely relish this extended trip, more so than Tiger Cliff I would think. Midnight Oil, has been in good form over hurdles, looking to be still an improving sort. Considering he won a decent 12f handicap off only 8lb lower nearly two yr ago, you would have to think the combination of general improvement since and the extra distance today would see him very competitive off his current mark. Suraj never got into the Chester Cup, but many didn't in a very rough race. I could see Spencer carving through the field off the bend, and looks a good e.w play.
Willbeme in 3.30 Thirsk(flattened out when in need of run last day, well handicapped), and Spieth 8.40Kemp(unlucky to bump into big improver, who raced on faster strip the last day...now Spieth up in trip which will suit), look to be two good bets elsewhere.
