Crowley calls it: “Ganayem should run a really big race”
2.30 Royal Ascot – Octave
Her form is very good. She was second to the Coventry Stakes winner. She must have a good chance. I’m pleased to have picked up the ride.
3.40 Royal Ascot – Eqtidaar
I’m really looking forward to riding this horse. He’s been working really well at home and his work partner won the Jersey Stakes. I’m really hopeful of a very big run. He’s one of the horses I’ve been looking forward all week to riding.
5.00 Royal Ascot – Ganayem
She has a really nice chance. She won her maiden at Nottingham first time out on fast ground, in a track record, and the race has thrown up winners. I think she should run a really good race. She’s progressing and going the right way.
Dane O’Neill rides Tajaanus who is a tough filly, but she’s carrying top weight. She should be there or thereabouts but I decided to go with the more progressive filly.
5.35 Royal Ascot – Saunter
I won the November Handicap on him on Good to Soft ground but I think he’s equally effective on fast ground. He has a reasonable draw and hopefully he can go well.
