The horse racing week ahead

It's looking like a relatively quiet week ahead with some decent action but a lot of fairly basic fair and not much to set the pulse racing at least early in the week. Sandown hosts a good card on Thursday evening including the Group Three  Brigadier Gerard Stakes whilst Haydock is the main meeting come the weekend with a couple of Group Three races and a Listed heat. No bet for me on Monday. 

Homeless Songs was the highlight of the weekend just gone for me winning the Irish 1,000 Guineas in some style. She came there cruising two furlongs out and went away from the field with ease. 

Trainer Dermot Weld said: "Every Classic is very special and every Classic is very difficult to win. She is a very special filly. I have won this race with a number of good fillies and she rates right up there. My main concern coming in here was whether she could carry that speed over a mile, but she relaxed beautifully for Chris and he gave her the most perfect ride. We'll see how she comes out of this race, but the Coronation Stakes would have to be a definite possibility."
