My mates horse "Boardman" is out tomorrow at Chester.  It's with Tim Easterby's yard and perhaps one of the best prospects the lad has co-owned.

Won last 2 times out.  Step up in class tomorrow and a 10lb rise but still tipped to go well.  I backed it yesterday at 6/1 (best odds guaranteed)

It's also entered for the Wokingham at Royal Ascot on 19th July.  I backed it Ante-Post at 18/1.  I suppose tomorrows performance will be a big factor if it actually runs at Ascot or not.

I'm going Chester tomorrow so hopefully a nice bonus on course.  Just be nice to get back to the races though and a few bevvies.

Just won the Derby with Adayar.

About a month ago that horse was 16/1 and then drifted to 50/1 (I took 40)

Absolutely buzzing. 250 up off a fiver each way  :D

He’s won twice now in novice events and won very easy today at Haydock against some potentially nice types. Think they’ve got a decent handicapper to go to war with.

Baaeed has looked a rocket in all 3 starts so far and won in facile style today against some decent performers, including One Ruler. Keep him on side because he’s improving rapidly and has a big group race in him.

Boardman runs again tomorrow in the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket (15:50)

Followed his hattrick up with a poor show last time out in a 28 runner handicap at Ascot, but he had a rotten draw to be fair.

I'm getting good vibes from the connections regarding the ground suiting tomorrow and they reckon he will go well.  16/1 now if anyone fancies an EW flutter

I got 25/1 Ante-post the other day.

Just been given a tip there from my old man who is working in Bradford. Irv, 4.25 at York. No idea about it, so don't shoot the messenger :D

Backed that thing a few runs back at Thirsk when he drifted like a barge just before the off and was never given a chance. Hopefully he's on today.

Was trying to think where they might go next, doubt they’ll go straight for a Grp 1 so wondered about the Grp 2 Celebration Mile at Goodwood end of August

Finally found out today that we’ve got tickets for tomorrow. We were originally going but obviously when the restrictions were extended they had to limit attendees, so we’ve been third on a list to get in for the last week.

Looking forward to it. Will certainly have a look at it again, but quite like Motakhayyel, won the last 2 years at this meeting including this race off 4lb less last year, always a tricky one to win but think there have been others before who won it twice.

Galileo has died today. His footprint is all over racing, the sire of all sires. Coolmore have a lot of his sons but they’ll do well to be able to do half of what he did. Suspect Frankel will become the premier sire now.

Wow that’s a bombshell. Obviously was getting on a bit but the greatest sire of this era easily, that’s gonna leave a massive void.

Nice when they win like that, doesn’t happen very often. Was the last leg of a treble today. It’s been a very successful day so far.

Irish Derby winner Hurricane Lane was ultra impressive last night in the Grand Prix de Paris, seems to have a serious turn of foot for a 12f horse. Think the St Leger is firmly off the table now, my idea of the Arc winner given we know he handles course distance and likely soft ground in October.

He looked very good but I’m still not absolutely convinced and that’s probably harsh. There’s something I can’t put my finger on.

Think Doyle gave Alenquer a bad ‘un. Hurricane Lane had flown.

You’re a hard man to please Gerry 😉

Think Doyle rode a similar race to Sea of Class there, in that he tucked in due to the wide draw got too far back and couldn’t get into a position to challenge as you say

Good to see a Derby winner go on, not really been a good one since Golden Horn.

The ground was lively enough but that was a rapid time Adayar posted too. Mishriff ran a screamer to finish under 2 lengths behind giving 11lbs.
