Charlie’s Sunday Selections
There were a couple of bright spot’s on Saturday, with the other 2 PN Choices Winning, having the 1st 2 home in the Irish 2,000 Guineas & a Maiden debut winner…. But that was yesterday, as there is no Flat racing in the UK, it’s The Curragh & Chantilly in France…. so let’s see what I have noted for today…..
2.50 – Listed Stakes – 3YO Only – 1m 1f
Ettisaal – Dubawi filly, Trained by Freddy Head, who won on debut over 7f at Maison- Laffitte by 1 & 3/4 lengths to Snejinska in the Tahiti Stakes
3.55 – Viger Stakes – Group 2 – 1m 7f
Vazirabad – Has only ever finished outside the top 2 once back in July 2016. 2nd on season return in the Al Shoha Trophy in Meydan over 1m 6f to Beautiful Romance, turned that form around when winning the Dubai Gold Cup, again in Meydan over 2m on Yielding turf, it’s only a 4 runner race & in my opinion can only beat himself
3.25 – Irish 1,000 Guineas – Group 1 Class 1 – 3YO Only – 1m
Winter – Beaten by a head on debut for Aiden O’Brien after leaving David Wachman by Hydrangea over 7f in the 1,000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown. Won the English 1,000 Guineas from Rhododendronby 2 lengths & like Churchill yesterday can complete the 1,000 Guineas double, with Ryan Moore on board today – DANGER – Rehana – Won the Group 3 Class 1 Athasi Stakes by 2 & 3/4 lengths over 7f, steps up in trip & grade.
4.00 – Fillies’ Handicap – 3YO Only – 1m
Bumbasina – 7th on debut over 7f back last August, made a winning return when stepped up to 1m at Gowran by beating Traety of Venice by 1/2 a length & followed that up with a 3/4’s of a length victory in a Fillies’ race in Killarney when beating Angel Island, again over 1mon yielding conditions. Billy Lee is 2 wins from 3 rides.
& finally, like yesterday I finish with a debut…..
5.00 -Maiden- 1m 2f
Europium – Frankel Filly, out of Revered(Oasis Dream). Half sister to Commemorative & Shoreditch, holds an Ascot entry next month.
