It’s been a quiet week after the madness and shenanigans of Royal Ascot down at Triple G Towers – I have been enjoying the sunshine and spending the winnings! No time to rest on the laurels though and here is one to be punted Wednesday.
The seven furlong Listed British Stallion Studs EBF Eternal Stakes at 4.30 up at Carlisle looks to be between Gavota and Dance Diva to my eyes. Gavota put in a poor showing in the G.3 Fred Darling at Newbury over seven on her 3yo debut back in April tamely falling out of contention having appeared to have every chance as they approached the final furlong. Dance Diva was third in the Fred Darling and when last seen fourth in the G.3 Princess Elizabeth Stakes won by Wilamina (subsequently 3rd in the G.2 Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at Ascot) over 8½f at Epsom and the drop back in trip should suit. Both yards are in fair form but I think this might just suit the filly from the Richard Fahey yard better and have taken the 5-2 overnight that is available with Paddy Power and Betfair.
