Take Prussian

Today's racing takes place at Wolverhampton, Musselburgh and Fontwell, but there is simulcast racing from Belmont and Finger Lakes in the United States as well.

News coming of Australia's is that the crack sprinter BLACK CAVIAR won her 20th consecutive race last Saturday, taking over the lead on the final turn and sprinting four lengths clear of closest rival in a field of 10.

Trainer Peter Moody has pencilled in BLACK CAVIAR's first international race as the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot outside London on June 23. The six-furlong race is part of the Global Sprint Challenge at the prestigious meet.

Today at Musselburgh, we like the look of 7-2 second favourite PRUSSIAN in the ninth race (0-90 handicap) to be contested by eight starters over nine furlongs. The 3-y-o colt, who is coming off a recent win, will be ridden by Joe Fanning for topline trainer Mark Johnston.
