Smallest field for years, but plenty of quality and plenty of interest.

Churchill's been the long time favourite. Galileo colt, won 5 from 6. No prep run. Easing just a little as race time approaches. 11/8

Barney Roy the firmer. Excelebration colt. Godolphin purchase. Looked great in his prep at Newbury. 7/2

Al Wuikair. Unbeaten French colt by Dream Ahead. Beat a G1 winner in his prep Maisons-Lafitte. Trained by the master Andre Fabre. The French haven't won the race for more than 20 years. 5/1

Eminent. Frankel colt owned by Sir Peter Vela, the owner of NZ Bloodstock. Won 2/2, including the Craven at this course about a fortnight ago. Frankel's first chance for a Classic winner.

Frankel's also got Godolphin second stringer, Dream Castle.

Should be a cracker!

Churchill impressive but a couple of questions behind him.

What happened to Barney Roy halfway through the race ?

Eminent is the only one to follow up in the Derby.

Very open race.

I'm on the German horse that won by 19 lengths last start - got 200-1   :biggrin:

James Doyle jumps off it to ride Glencadam Gold.

Imagine if in Australia Chris Waller or Darren Weir would have sent two of the stable out as sacrificial lambs to put on the pace for the stablemates like that.

With the roughie Wings Of Eagles just getting up to beat the favoured stable runner I don't think it would be a popular result anyways.

Great race as it always is, on the best track in the world.

Wish Racing NSW would have some vision and build a track (or a series of tracks) like that out at Horsely Park where they stage the equestrian to replace one or two of the urban tracks.

Epsome is not the best track in the world.

Far too many horses don't handle Epsom. With the downhill run to Tattenham Corner and the camber in the straight, it's idiosyncratic and a real test of balance, but the best? Not for me. 

Sandown Park or Ascot for me, or if you want a flat track, you cant beat York.

What I found odd was the choice of pacemaker as well. That horse is well related. surprised to see them want to give him a gut buster. He ran a cracker of a race considering.

Is there another race coming up where these horse may back up in. There was a hidden gem in there

Irish Derby beginning of July or at Royal Ascot King Edward VII stakes.
