Criterion Stakes & Irish Derby Bets !!!

On Saturday we have some top quality racing action from Newcastle,Newmarket & Curragh .Going concentrate on the two main races the Irish Derby & Bet365 Criterion Stakes .

Over at Headquarters we have good looking 7 furlong group three contest with nine runners declared on good ground .The three main contenders look to be Hawkeyethenoo,Pastoral Player & Producer .

HAWEYETHENOO :High class handicapper over 5 to 7 furlongs winning stewards cup & Victoria Cup .Been running with credit in group races this season including finishing fair sixth in group one Golden Jubilee stakes at Royal Ascot last time .However is 0 from 6 in group company.

PASTORAL PLAYER : Group three winner over 7 furlongs at Haydock last season.Looked unlucky last time when trying to win the race for second year running, when getting beat short head after not getting the clearest run.Obvious claims in similar race.

PRODUCER :Group three 7 furlong winner at Goodwood last season.Returned to form when winning listed race at Leicester in April beating the useful Aljamaaheer by head .Looked non stayer over 9 furlongs last time at Epsom . 

VERDICT : Producer should go well here returning to his optimum trip ,all six career wins have come over seven furlongs and has winning form in this grade . 

However preference is for PASTORAL PLAYER who was very unlucky not to score in group three company last time and can gain compensation here.This race should be run to suit with confirmed front runners Red Jazz & Libranno in the race .Odds around 3-1 look decent value .

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the second bet we go over to Ireland for weekends feature race the Irish Derby .This looks match race between the first and second from Epsom Derby. Ruler Of The World & Libertarian .

RULER OF THE WORLD : Unbeaten colt winning Chester Vase & going on to win Epsom Derby in good style .Seemed to win with plenty in hand at Epsom ,though that looked very tactical race run in very slow time .

LIBERTARIAN :Shock 33-1 winner of Dante at York in May .Proved that was no fluke finishing excellent second in Epsom Derby .Looked unsuited by track and the slow pace there, and did well to finish second.Looks open to plenty improvement and should be suited better by this track.

VERDICT : Ruler of the World looks the one to beat on his Epsom form ,though there still remains doubt about the form of that race .Odds around 11-10 look too short .

LIBERTARIAN has 1.5 lenghs to find with Ruler Of World ,though this track looks certain to suit much better than Epsom .At around four times the price looks solid each-way bet against short price favourite.
