    Yes Tullius! Another fantastic run, this horse has got some engine.

    Was another good run from Tullius, he's very much a horse on the up and looks to be improving all of the time and it will be interesting to see where connections go from here.

    Pretty impressive chasing debut from Carlito Brigante, travelled nicely, jumped with no issues and won very easily without really being tested.

    Hadn't seen that he was making his chasing debut as i don't tend to look at any jumps meetings from now but after having a look he really should be beating those rivals considering his rating of 155 over hurdles, how did he go off at 2/1 though?

    The Dante looks impossible for me, a number of them have claims. Bonfire has Group 1 form behind the 2000 Guineas second and is highly regarded by his owners and trainer. Ektihaam didn't look right in the Dewhurst at the backend of last year but won well on his seasonal debut albeit on really soft ground at Newbury. Ernest Hemingway won easily on debut and is from a yard which has an abundance of quality horses. Fencing looks like he will relish 1m2f and further and will get better as he gets older and was a decent 6th in the 2000 Guineas. Mandean was highly regarded in France and is apparently Godolphins main Derby hope.

    All that has gone through my head and i've decided i'll watch and just hope that a horse puts in a great visual performance. If i had to have a bet though i think i would go with Bonfire.

    Does anyone think it is worth taking Frankel on?

    Not really, he's a freak and if he's sound he will win and Excelebration will finish second as those are the two best horses.

    Awful news with Brinidisi Breeze having to be put down. He looked like a mighty prospect at Cheltenham.

    Such a shame and what an awful way to go, jumped out of his paddock and was hit by a tanker.

    Just seen this. Devastating for Lucinda Russell and her team, who I follow quite closely. The horse won me a lot of money at Cheltenham

    Derby day today. Camelot looks pretty much nailed on, but I'm having a little each way on Mickdaam at 33/1.

    I'm thinking exactly the same, i've backed Mickdaam every start though so i can't stop today.

    I thought it was quite poor but i think the 3yo fillies are a very average bunch this year.

    I've put a very small amount on each of the races at Epsom so far, and have had second in every one!

    I nearly put 20 on Camelot this morning but didn't bother in the end!

    If Camelot goes for the Triple Crown I for one will be at Doncaster to hopefully see it done for the first time in 42 years. Even if I have to miss a Wolves match it will be worth it.

    Camelot was awesome as expected, he never looking in any danger as far as i was concerned. I was quite happy with Mickdaam's run, he didn't handle the track coming down the hill but ran on into 5th in the straight.

    although oh so sharp did the 1000, oaks and st leger in 85 as Clare Balding was at pains to point out
    it is not that I have no past. rather, it continually fragments on the terrible and vivid ephemera of now.

    Of course I was referring to the original and true Triple Crown. Did Clare Balding mention that more times than "there's my brother, father, mother etc etc"? I really hope Channel 4 don't employ her!

    Black Caviar arrives safe and sound. I really hope she blows us all away.

    I think most are hoping Black Caviar does exactly that and as the Aussies have the best sprinters and she blows them all away i can't see anything beating her.

    It appears that Gold Cup day was cursed this year.
