    Had to like the runs for ALBIGNA and SUMMER ROMANCE over the last 24-hours, both have moved to the head of the 1000 Guineas market, with much bigger moves than those victorious at Royal Ascot.

    ALBIGNA cut from 40/1 before winning a Group 2 in Ireland last night. Now 16/1 (apart from B365 kindly going 20/1), she clearly needed more than the 6F of the race yesterday, and trainer states 7F and even 8F this year, with Group 1 target mentioned next time out.

    SUMMER ROMANCE cut from 33/1 to 16/1 after demolishing the Listed Empress Stakes at Newmarket this afternoon. Bookies running for cover and she is now the 1000 Guineas fav at 16/1, with Laddies going as low as 8/1.

    Summer Romance looks absolutely top drawer.

    The narrative that Godolphin horses don't train on is so hard to explain... but 16/1 seems very fair still considering you know she'll handle the dip

    Summer Romance is a Kingman filly, and half-sister to Clie Brittainís last really good Group 1 filly Rizeena.

    Rizeenaís sire was Iffraaj and at two she:

    WON the Group 2 Queen Mary - 5F
    2nd in the Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge - 6F
    3rd in the Group 1 Prix Morny - 6F (against the colts)
    WON the Group 1 Moyglare - 7F
    2nd in the Group 1 Filles Mile - 8F

    At three she WON the Group 1 Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, and was a close 2nd to older fillies in two further Group 1ís, the Falmouth Stakes and the Matron Stakes.

    Summer Romance is by Kingman who is turning out to be a formidable sire, and has bred quality milers like King Of Comedy.
    I think the sire has a real quality filly here, and she could be a Group 1 filly. Backed her for the 1000 Guineas at 33/1 before todayís race and also again after the race in multi-bets ante post at 14/1.

    Iím not convinced that we saw anything last week for the ante-post portfolio. There are some likely types running in Ireland over the Irish Derby weekend this weekend.

    The fillies Group 2 on a Friday afternoon has Albigna and Peace Charter entered at 5-day decs.

    The colts Group 2 on Saturday has Siskin and Monarch Of Egypt entered.

    Overall we should be wiser if they all run.

    My own favourite since his Newmarket debut is VISINARI, and its interesting to see that two colts from that race have now ran with three more entered this week.

    Will To Win (Simon Crisford) finished 5th behind Visinari beaten 15 lengths. Will To Win has since won a maiden by 2&3/4 lengths with an RPR 25 points higher then his run behind Visinari.

    Maysong (Ed Dunlop) finished 8th behind Visinari beaten 22 lengths. Maysong has finished 2nd at Nottingham next time out beaten 3/4 of a length and improved his RPR by 43 points on his run behind Visinari.

    There will be more pointers this week with the following entered

    Daily Times (Gosden) 4th beaten 13&3/4 lengths by Visinari runs in the 5.50pm at Kempton tomorrow.
    Dorset Blue (Hannon) 7th beaten 16 lengths by Visinari is entered at Doncaster on Friday (3.30pm)
    Clareyblue (Meade) 2nd beaten 13 lengths by Visinari is entered at York on Saturday (2.10pm)
    Daily Times was a close second at Kempton (3rd was 3 lengths back) on Wednesday with his RPR improving from 52 to 78.
    Clareyblue was a close second at York (3rd was 6 lengths back) on Saturday with his RPR improving from 58 to 83.

    Thatís four runners from Visinariís maiden, all finished first or close second next time out, and their RPRs improved by 25, 43, 26 and 25 points.

    Visinariís RPR was 98, an improvement of anywhere near 25 not next time out but before the season end would put him at a Group 1 class. Really interesting runner next time out.

    Siskin is probably the best we've seen so far.

    Agreed on Siskin being best so far. Defo not a bet for anything in England at the moment as his trainer tends to want to run in Ireland wherever possible. Get Lyons form in England is 0-36 in the past five years, which probably explains the view to stay at home when he can.

    Hampton Fox I see Andy Holding made a very strong call for Visinari yesterday both in the July Stakes and the 2000 Guineas next year:

    Bit of a shame as I was on the cusp of following you in on both but top prices now long gone.
