Captain Hurricane only beat a couple home, but I was happy with the run. He didn’t settle for the first couple of furlongs and he was well out the back. He showed he still retains ability and maybe one day he’ll win another race.
It’s the 2,000 Guineas today and I think it’s a strong renewal. There is enormous confidence behind a number of them. I’ve decided to side with Diamond Tycoon who I know Brian has a big opinion of.
I may have some small bets elsewhere. The Derby trial at Newmarket may prove to be a serious race with a few hype horses running – I’ll side with Salford Mill. I’ll have a small bet on Fullandby in the 4:00. I’ll take Bustan at Thirsk and River Thames and Bold Abbott at Goodwood.
