Oisin Murphy on his ROYAL ASCOT 2021 day one rides
SIR BUSKER – 2.30
I’ve received 12 rides on the primary two days of Royal Ascot and I’m thrilled to be so busy on the assembly. them I’ve some outdoors probabilities, however my higher rides are to return later within the week. I kick off with SIR BUSKER within the Queen Anne Stakes and the huge constructive is that he loves the course. It’s a really aggressive race and everyone knows Palace Pier will probably be robust to beat. I simply hope Sir Busker can run an enormous race, I sat on him at house and he’s in nice type. He’s drawn properly in stall 9 across the fancied horses and he’ll be ending robust.
BERKSHIRE SHADOW – 3.05
BERKSHIRE SHADOW is a beautiful horse to be on within the Coventry Stakes. He’s a horse for the long run in that he’s huge with a number of scope and he’ll keep additional in time. He’s drawn a little bit bit away from the fancied runners, the Wesley Ward filly seems to be an apparent hazard after which there’s Gisburn, who was really behind my horse at Newbury earlier than actually stepping up on the identical observe subsequent day trip. There are such a lot of in with probabilities, it’s an excellent race, as you’ll anticipate, however Berkshire Shadow has been coaching very properly and we’re trying ahead to the race.
KING’S LYNN – 3.40
KING’S LYNN bounced out of his Haydock win properly and he’s in fine condition forward of the King’s Stand Stakes. He’s drawn in 16, not too far-off Oxted and Battaash which provides him two good ones to goal at. There seems to be to be a number of front-runners in it so it could possibly be a fast-run race and at an enormous worth I can see Arecibo ending off and working properly. It ought to swimsuit my horse too, although, and he had the choice of the Wokingham as properly, however he’s turning right into a quicker horse on a regular basis so we had been eager to remain at 5 furlongs with him.
UNTOLD STORY – 5.00
I’m on UNTOLD STORY within the Ascot Stakes and he’s a pleasant horse who’s bettering. I don’t know if he’ll keep two and a half miles however he’s undoubtedly a stayer on the up even when this an enormous leap up from a mile and a half. Willie Mullins has a really robust hand and also you’ve received to respect him, whereas Rachael Blackmore rides an attention-grabbing horse in Cape Gentleman for Emmet Mullins.
FELIX – 5.35
FELIX has been educated for the Wolferton Stakes since Dubai and he has an excellent probability. He’s going to get again within the run and wish some luck however he finishes properly and that is the fitting race for him. I used to be on him in Dubai when he completed third to Lord North within the Dubai Turf and I used to be completely delighted with him on the market. He was a really shrewd buy for connections and hopefully he’s nonetheless on the up.
BRILLIANT LIGHT – 6.10
I like this horse. I’ve ridden him at house in work a number of occasions. He put in some cracking efforts in Dubai and although he’s gone up a bit within the weights I believe there’s extra to return from him. He’s a correct stayer, an excellent galloper, and I’m trying ahead to driving him. One unfavourable is his attract 16, that’s not nice for me, I have to say, we’re actually vast, however hopefully I can get him out and go ahead. I believe he can run an enormous race and the first-time visor received’t do him any hurt.
