BANKERS OR BLOWOUTS?

Regal Parade 2.00 Newcastle SP forecast 13-8 The one horse conspicuous by his absence in last Saturday's Golden Jubilee. He would surely have been favourite or second favourite given conditions were perfect for him and he was rated higher than every horse who ran in it. As for this Group 3 contest, he has an official 8lb edge on the next best in the field and if he runs up to his best he'll win. He has been below par on two of his three starts this year, though.

Conclusion This 6f with a little bit of give should be absolutely perfect and it will be disappointing if he can't win as he's a genuine Group 1 horse under these conditions.

Midday 3.35 Curragh SP forecast 4-5 Should be unbeaten this season, but Tom Queally went for home too soon in the Coronation Cup at Epsom and she idled in front, allowing St Nicholas Abbey past. She did something similar in last season's Nassau at Goodwood, going clear two furlongs out before getting headed and then fighting back to win well. She had no trouble beating main market rival Snow Fairy when they met at York last season, but last season's Oaks winner then improved to win two big Group 1 contests in Japan and Hong Kong. Conclusion Fitness edge probably gives Midday every right to favouritism, but questionable whether there should be as much between the big two as the market suggests and I'll be backing Snow Fairy.
