I think she could finish third.Could get a little weary in the last furlong but worth a shot,especially if the price drifts up

I don't get why Mac Swiney is getting so much play

Galileo top and bottom.

 

I knew Galileo’s offspring had been really successful in this race in recent years and thought I would check out some recent winners’ pedigrees.  The last 10 winners all came from the Northern Dancer sireline, 5 via Galileo, 3 from a different Sadlers Wells, and 2 from Green Desert (Danzig), but only with a RAN in the bmsireline.  You have to go back 11 years to find a winner not from the ND line and guess who is in the bmsireline?  Sadlers Wells lol.

thanks for putting this up. Although looking at these PP I dont see a lot you can use to separate these horses, other than speed figures

Mrs. Prospector ?

I think if you like Mac Swiney, then dont forget ONE RULER... 

I know NONE of these Jockeys... Like "buick" did he get off of One ruler or ON Hurricane lane... Is Doyle better than Buick ?

Anyway, sticking my nose in where it doesnt belong... Have a good summer guys

No doubt, a plus.  I just rewatched the Irish 2000 Guineas from May 22 & he led throughout & was all out to hold off his rivals.  A very nice win on soft/heavy going.  It appears he enjoys the soft, the heavy and the yielding going.  That's when he wins.   When he meets good ground, he is beaten rather soundly.  The going is rated good at Epsom (as of today & projected to Saturday)

I'm ambivalent about him since he also likes to run prominently.  No Dettori, BTW.  I misread the Racing Post card.  Kevin Manning has the ride.

I think he's currently 7-1 at OddsChecker.   I do not think Jim Bolger would have entered him unless he thinks he has a solid shot.  Hmmm.

I prefer Hurricane Lane.  :)

His best numbers are soft , very high as you know. Looks higher than others on firmer.

Oh yeah.  I noticed early that those two sons are in his sireline and bmsireline.
