Jim Crowley: “We think Wadilsafa is going to be a Group horse”

3.05 Royal Ascot – Wadilsafa

I’m really looking forward to riding him. He’s a big strong son of Frankel. I could have done with a kinder draw as he’s stuck out in 13. Over a mile and a quarter the draw is important. He’s a good horse. He’s still quite inexperienced having had just the two starts but he is a very good horse. It wouldn’t be a surprise at all if he won. We do like him and we think he is going to be a Group horse.

4.20 Royal Ascot – Scotland

.He’s a big outsider and we are running for a place. He ran very well in this race two years ago, and was then injured. He’s always been a talented horse. He’s had a warm up run and ran very well. On his best form he is going to struggle against the likes of Vazirabad, Order Of St George and Stradivarius. I think Order of St George is the most likely winner. He’s been there and done it. He stays. It’s going to be a great race.

5.00 Royal Ascot – Moqarrar

He’s a decent horse. He was unlucky last time. He just couldn’t quite get there on the line. He will have an each way chance. He’s drawn all the way over in 1 on the far side. I’m not sure that’s the place to be. All the fancied horses have middle to high draws.

5.35 Royal Ascot – Corgi

I really like this horse. The only thing I’d worry about is the fact the ground might be too quick for him. The trip should suit and he should run very well.
