The Field 3.05 Ascot Buy at 2.5 in a match bet with Astrology (below) Aidan O'Brien's Astrology has improved this season and he posted a careerbest RPR when third in the Derby last time, but I'm convinced that race was substandard and buying a field full of unexposed and potentially useful middle-distance performers giving up two and a half lengths is a steal.

Aside from the doubts over the strength of the Derby form, it is also worth noting that Astrology was given a particularly aggressive ride in the big one at Epsom and he was very tired when caught close home for second by Main Sequence.

It has been only 20 days since that hard race and there is a big question mark over whether he will be capable of producing his best so soon after that run.

Oaks second and third Shirocco Star and The Fugue were no match for Princess Highway, who came into the Ribblesdale a fresh horse yesterday, and I will be surprised if Astrology doesn't find at least one or two too good.
