Three Horses To Follow Ahead Of The Weekend

Epsom Oaks - Frankly Darling

Frankly Darling looks to have a huge chance in the Epsom Oaks on Saturday and at the prices looks to be a big enough to price to back.

The daughter of Frankel made her reappearance as a three year old at Newcastle and romped to victory when stepping up in trip to 1 mile 2 furlongs.

This set her up perfectly for a crack at the Group Two Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot and again it was a procession with her being stretched out to win cosily.

Off the back of what she has done so far this term she has been installed as the 11/4 second favourite for the Epsom Oaks, just behind Love for Aidan O'Brien who landed the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket.

We believe she has shown clear speed and also staying ability in the latter stages that is unproven in the favourite and for that reason looks a good bet.

Epsom Derby - Mogul

As ever Aidan O'Brien has a very strong team heading to Epsom this season and one horse we like is the 3.4 million Guineas son of Galileo, Mogul.

The three year old has one of the best pedigrees in the race and now with a run under his belt will be sure to give a good account of himself at a trip that is set to suit.

Mogul was a bright juvenile landing two contests including the Group Two Champions Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown and then finishing a decent fourth in the Group One Vertem Futurity Stakes at Newcastle.

A mile and a half or further looked to be the prerogative for this colt and having finished fourth in the Group Two King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot, he will come on for that run.

It looks as if he will not want any rain and having been bought as a Derby horse he finally gets to have a go at the Classic event.

Coral Eclipse - Ghaiyyath

Finally on the Sunday the Group One action continues and Ghaiyyath for Charlie Appleby looks a completely different animal this season and for that reason is the one to follow especially at an odds against price.

The son of Dubawi was known last season for jet setting all over the globe to win races which saw him land a Group One in Germany by 14 lengths a Group Two in France and also a Group Three in Meydan.

He headed to the Prix de l'arc de Triomphe on his final start last season and didn't run any sort of race but seems to be a completely different animal this term.

The five year old, with the current travel restrictions due to the on going crisis in the world, looks to be sticking to contests on home soil this season and showed just how special he was when landing the Group One Coronation Cup at Newmarket at the start of June.

He went on to beat Epsom Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck along with three time Ascot Gold Cup winner Stradivarius in that black type event, subsequently breaking the track record.

That form has since been franked with the John Gosden trained stayer landing his third Gold Cup in emphatic style and Ghaiyyath like that performance will be sure to improve.
