Well after being treated to the best performance Crockford had seen in years from a horse in the form of Frankel – what could we expect today? So You Think has been well touted since his arrival from down under and should add another top prize today with a win the Prince of Wales. O’Brien should have a successful afternoon with chances in the Jersey with Ishvana and with Devotion in the last.
Crockford’s Dead Cert – Nahrain (Windsor Forest 3.05)
Roger Varian has been looking forward to the seasonal reappearnce of Nahrain who should land the second race at the Royal meeting today. Quoted at about 4/1 the odds should be attractive too.
Crockford’s Whisper – Ishvana (Jersey 2.30)
O’Brien’s classy filly should make the frame today after her classic performance a few weeks ago. Crockford believes there is excellent value available at around 14/1.
Crockfords other gambles today at the meeting:
Jersey – Ishvana (e/w)
Windsor Forest – Nahrain
Prince of Wales – So You Think
Royal Hunt Cup – Rock Critic (e/w), King Torus (e/w) and Boom & Bust (e/w)
