JACK HOBBS won the Irish Derby and, if you were clever and quite quick, you will have got on at Evens earlier on Saturday. He won easily at SP odds of 10/11 and Givoanni Cannaletto, an each way selection for members who prefer to bet that way, returned further profit when placed third.
HUNTSMANS CLOSE was the best value win of the day. 5/1 when tipped up to members, there was no funny business from him this day as there was at Ascot, when he broke free before the off and had to be withdrawn.
The duel in the 3.05 at Chester, about which I went into great detail on Friday night, was won by Enlace with Sakhee’s Return half a length back in second. So I was right in one regard, there is no way Enlace should have been as big a price as 6/1 on Friday while Sakhee’s Return was only 11/4.
The let downs on Saturday were 4th placed Funding Defecit and third placed Log out Island.
On Sunday, over at the Curragh, Legatissimo was again beaten by the narrowest of margins, this time a short head. In a thrilling finish to the race, Diamondsandrubies won the feature race on the card, the Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes.
The next selections will be for racing taking place on Thursday July 2nd at th elikes of Haydiock, Epsom and Newbury. Those will be available to you Wednesday evening.
