Friday night tips
Frankie Valli would say ‘Oh What A Night!’ for tomorrow night’s star-studded action, with the Coral Coronation Cup the main event, worth £5,000 to the winner, and a stunning supporting card.
Starting with the 575m feature, and unfortunately it’s a five-runner affair after Bansha Mo was pulled out, which means Rockview Sail (9.24pm) might have a clear path to big-race success after some near-misses over the years. He certainly leads up.
Where do you start with the undercard?
Well, the reappearance of star puppy Bonamassa Rocks (8.50pm) catches the eye and his strong-running style might be too much for Rio Minstrel’s lightning early speed, while prolific-scoring Ayamzaman (10.26pm) has moved well in trials and might be too much for Bush Standard to handle.
Possibly saving the best for last, Planning (10.40pm) versus Be Real should be a real ding-donger.
Both were knocked out of the Coronation Cup suffered ring-rustiness after breaks, but the former did run an encouraging race latest and might be more forward.
But watch the pair throughout the year!
