Criquette Head-Maarek knows exactly the type of horse it takes to win the 1000 Guineas and Special Duty ticks all the right boxes for tomorrow's renewal (3.20 Newmarket). Her third place in a tricky Prix Imprudence in very soft ground can be forgiven and you can be sure her trainer will have her fully wound up for her trip to British HQ.


Chelsea landed me the double in fine style last week, but hopefully Man United can do me a good turn tomorrow with a trip to Sunderland. Expect the Red Devils to come out with all guns blazing and the even money on offer from some firms for the United half-time/full-time result gets a confident thumbs up from me.
