Nine years after Kazzia landed the 1,000 Guineas/Oaks double for Godolphin Blue Bunting (4:05) can repeat the trick by landing the second fillies’ Classic of the season under Frankie Dettori.
The daughter of Dynaformer is bred to appreciate this step up in trip and the fact that she was able to land the Guineas over a mile speaks volumes of her natural ability.
Up at Musselburgh the Tradesman’s Derby Handicap can go the way of top-weight Motivado (4:25) who looked to win with a fair in bit in hand at Ripon just 10 days ago.
The Motivator colt incurs a 6lb penalty for that success, but he appeared to have plenty up his sleeve and the step up in trip is bound to bring about significant improvement.
He looks a typical sort that Sir Mark Prescott does so well with and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he ended up in much better company than this.
4:05 Epsom Blue Bunting (9/4 or best morning line odds)
4:25 Musselburgh Motivado (10/11)
