A short hiatus for Thoroughblog as the exciting QUEEN’S PLATE PREVIEW issue is sent to the printers,yes, there is a bit of space to wait for the results of races this weekend (Marine etc.).

With horses like INCREDICAT, STRAIT OF DOVER (enough with the water, sailing puns!), PRINCE RAPHAEL, DIXIE STRIKE, SHAKESPEARE’S BREW and GOLDEN RIDGE among those racing this weekend, the Plate picture will surely come clearer after Sunday’s 10th race.

Well, at least a little.

I will be back tomorrow morning to post a re-cap of the week’s action and today’s news, for now, back to work!
