Five horses that caught the eye in the loss at the Cazoo Derby Festival
Harry Allwood has identified five horses that he believes will prove profitable to follow over the next few months after their efforts in losing at the Cazoo Derby Festival.

Race: Third in the Cazoo Woodcote EBF Stakes
Having formed with a minor promise when he was eighth in his debut at Yarmouth, Maybury took a big step forward to finish third in that Class 2 competition on Friday.
William Jarvis must hold his two-year-old in high enough esteem to be launched into a race of this nature on his second start, and his youngster was a little overwhelmed last due to the strong gallop, which gave him plenty of ground. . to compensate the leaders.
Looking at his breeding, this trip is almost certain to be insufficient for him to move forward, and he’s fashioned as if it was here as it took him a while to get into top gear before to remain encouraging to finish a never-closer to the third.
Our thoughts are with Diligent Lady’s relationship after a terrible fall at @WindsorRaces and best wishes to the jockeys @Alirawlinson and our ownhttps://twitter.com/GeorgeBuckell?refsrc = twsrc% 5Etfw “> @ GeorgeBuckell. Centurion Song was lucky enough to walk away with a few scratches and is on his way home.

It will be interesting to see if relationships decide to improve it next time or lower their goal, but it’s almost certain that it will be seen another yard or two once those opportunities open up.
He’s also bred to improve with age, and based on that performance, he shouldn’t have a hard time getting off the ground soon.

Race: Third in the Coral “beat by a length” free bet handicap
Plantadream was another who stayed behind on Friday after having plenty to do and would have finished second in a few more strides.
He was a regular player last year and his below-average effort on his seasonal debut must have been necessary considering how he bounced back to form here.
Although he remains on an all-time career record of 96, he’s only a pound more than his last winning mark on the turf, and I expect Connections will try to tap into that over the next few months.
Despite being six years old, he has raced relatively little for his age and although he is entered in the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot, he is unlikely to participate in this competition.
He also seemed to be struggling when he was improved twice last season, so I expect Connections to try to find a race similar to this for him next time around.
He’s a handicapper to keep by his side this season, just like Irish admiral who, despite being kicked out from the well-supported favorite, failed to strike a blow in this competition but is best judged on his efforts when he finished third in York in a well-going race.
William Haggas’ charge will likely be more effective on firmer ground and isn’t one to give up just yet.

Race: Second in the world Pool At The tote Handicap
This is probably a testament to King Frankel’s ability that he only managed to be beaten by the minimum margin in that 1m2f handicap as he didn’t seem to be handling the track and never traveled with ease in the back.
He had previously finished second to an emerging Group horse in what seemed like a strong renewal of the London Gold Cup on his handicap debut, and he also moved away from third place on that occasion.
Foal Frankel is a brother of Group 2 winner Eminent, so he is bred and named! – be smart, and there is every reason to believe that he will become a top handicapper at least this season.
He doesn’t hold any entries, but I expect Connections to have precious ten-stage handicaps in mind for their three-year-old who will certainly have a lot more to offer.
DUKE OF HAZZARD

Race: Fourth in the stakes of Cazoo Diomed
A gust of wind ahead of his seasonal comeback appears to have helped Duke Of Hazzard who returned to form with an encouraging effort behind Oh This Is Us on Saturday.
The 2019 Celebration Mile winner was placed twice at the Group Two level last season, in races won by Mohaather and Space Blues, before producing two below-par efforts in his last two starts last season.
However, the five-year-old traveled well before fading back on his return where he looked like he needed a run and would have finished closer to Epsom if he had suffered a flawless run.
Frankie Dettori’s mount ran a little behind and was denied a gap at a crucial stage before being forced to switch to meet his challenge. He was the winner when he ran into some traffic issues and chances are he would have given the pair some food for thought before if he hadn’t experienced interference.
He holds a stake in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, but I’m not sure he lives up to Group One. He would be more interested in a group two or three competition, like the Lennox Stakes at the Qatar Goodwood Festival in July, a race in which he finished second last year.
STONE OF DESTINY

Race: Third in the World Pool ‘Dash’ Handicap
Sure, he needs everything to fall well, and for the gaps to appear, to have his head ahead, but this stubborn effort from Stone Of Destiny proves he’s capable of being competitive on a 102 score when is able to show his best.
The heist was still in last position and waited for a gap to appear in two stages, but flew once flawlessly to take third place and surely would have been close to victory without interference.
Provided he isn’t hurt for his efforts here, he is likely to race in Wokingham at Royal Ascot on June 19th. He was beaten by just over two lengths when he was sixth in that competition last year – albeit with a score of 97 – and is a 25-1 best prize for the six-stadium competition this year. .
I will have a small bet each way if he runs in this precious handicap and I will also be looking to gain a few more places with the bookies because I can see him running well again.
However, he would be most interesting on minimum travel as he produced his career best efforts over five stadiums (and five and a half stadiums in Portland last year).
Whatever the outcome if he races at Wokingham I will be watching him closely in Sprint Handicaps over the next few months.
