Legatissimo to return to winning ways

Sunday's big race is the Sea The Stars Pretty Polly Stakes with the Tsui family kindly coming in and sponsoring the race.

And it is certainly a deservingly prestigious affair for the stallion to put his name to.

David Wachman's Legatissimo is obviously a 1,000 Guineas winner who finished second in the Epsom Oaks and I think coming back to a mile and a quarter will see the filly at her best distance.

With the race there for the taking at Epsom I just felt that she didn't quite manage to stay the distance in the Oaks and we will now see her in her most ideal conditions.

Brooch is a very high-class filly, trained by Dermot Weld, who is unbeaten in her four starts to date, but I'm not sure enough rain will come to see her either at her best, or at all, so I think I'll be sticking with Legatissimo, although there is a strong challenge from across the water.

It'll be very interesting to see how the race pans out.
