Coronation for Camelot

Was was mentioned here to be one to watch for, but still produced a shocker to win the Oaks. She was ideally placed in a stalking position and took full benefit in the straight, as some of those at the end of the pack found themselves shuffled back with too much ground to make. It will be interesting to see if the form of this race holds up as the slow pace had a great incidence on the running of the race.

Earlier, Worthadd found the extended mile one hundred yards too far and came out fourth. He was travelling beautifully and looked a winner until he floundered in the late stages. Maybe a strict mile at the top level is the max he can handle.

The Derby will numerically the smallest in years. It's hard to go against Camelot here. He ticks the boxes everywhere; unbeaten and by Montjeu, he is clearly the pick on form and pedigree. Only a no-show from him on the day will beat him. He's possibly the surest thing for a Classic in years. Clearly, a very confident Win selection here.

Win: Camelot
