I'm hearing a lot of good things about the regally-bred debut winner Dubai Thunder, with quite a few giving him a strong chance of landing the Epsom Derby next month.

As you know, Dubawi needs no introduction. The dam, Gonbarda, won two of Germany's biggest races, the Preis von Europa and Deutschland Preis.

The Coolmore juggernaut continues: Churchill and Winter completed their respective English-Irish Guineas doubles this weekend. O'Brien trained the first three home in the Irish 1000 Guineas. The winner of the Tattersalls Gold Cup (G1), Decorated Knight, is by Galileo (although not owned by Coolmore).

The flight with O'Brien's horses from Ireland was delayed and his lorry didn't arrive at Epsom until a little over an hour ago. Talk about cutting it close...

ETA: Made no difference for Highland Reel, who won the Coronation Cup (G1).

Well that's not good...Daddys Lil Darling has bolted down the course and dumped her rider. She has been caught, but I don't think she's a runner.
Yes, she's scratched. What a shame. After all the prep and shipping across The Pond, to have her withdrawn at the gate. :(

Maybe she was smart enough to know she wanted no part of Epsom. The thunder and lightning probably didn't help, either.
