On another quiet autumnal day, there was little to get overly excited about bar one performance at Nottingham. The horse in question won by over 8L on debut and has already been thrown in at the top end of markets for the Guineas, more on that in a bit. At HA we had a poor day, with neither of our two picks ever looking even remotely interested. Admittedly it’s a tricky time of the year to really commit to the flat, and as mentioned before we will see out the flat season until Champion’s Day, however eyes are being turned to the jumps and we can’t wait.
1 30 DREAMFIELD (J Gosden) 4/5, C5 2YO Maiden, 6F, Good to Soft
At a costly 1.1 million Guineas, you’d expect a horse of this potential and calibre to win a race of this stature, and win he certainly did. The Oasis Dream colt did nothing but impress and was a gulf – make that two gulfs – ahead of any of his rivals. Blue Point has rightly been Godolphin’s main juvenile being spoken of as a Guineas horse, but Dreamfield has already muddied these waters after today’s showing. Although very early days, with much yet to be proven it’s obvious as to why this has been the case. It’s unlikely we’ll see John Gosden’s juvenile again this term and much will be revealed regarding Godolphin’s plans for their youngsters in early Spring.
