It’s not Goodwood (but it will have to do)

I can’t make much sense of the card today. So many with good chances that there surely has to be a bit of shiny pin polishing.

I considered selections based on a colour theme, because there is rather too much of that dratted form I mentioned before, but that would be crazy wouldn’t it, and anyway I could only come up with Golden Hinde (who I fancied) and Red Jazz (who I didn’t really).

Molecomb Stakes: I am going to oppose Zebedee and back Lord of the Stars dropped to the minimum trip. And I was thinking Arctic Cosmos in the Gordon. Then I can’t seem to get Finjaan off the brain in the Lennox Stakes, but there’s Lord Shanakill in the line-up too, plus the classy Balthazaar’s Gift which all means I might back the French Dalghar on account of his form behind Goldikova and Paco Boy. Or not. I don’t know: I am paralysed with indecision. This would be one of those days where you need to be there. I know it’s on tv but I will be at work.

P.S. I have other things on my mind today as the Devon Home Cook is staying the night. I wonder what will be for tea, last time I had a trio of rhubarb desserts before washing it down with a barrel of ale.

  1. NB to self: 3 year olds have won the Lennox Stakes 6 times out of the last 10 runnings, this being despite their being greatly outnumbered.

    Today’s 3yos are Air Chief Marshal (may not want it firmer than good) and Red Jazz (wide draw).

    Back to the colour theme? Military theme? I need a theme!
