Hello and Welcome to Simply Sunday from arseonlinetips, yesterday was a very good day for racing, with some fantastic finishes and some deserved winners. We now turn our thoughts to today and see what we have in store for you…..
Charlie – Is taking a day away and return for Bank Holiday Monday…. See you then!
Rich’s Final Word –
After Haydock yesterday, I have turned my attention to the Curragh and Longchamp, so let’s see what we have….
Defoe heads to Ireland, running in the 2.55 Gold Cup. Having been two from two this season, with both wins over 1m 4f, he now drops back to 1m 2f and this should not really be an issue. His only defeat was in the St Leger and we know how that form has worked out. Although, a word of caution, after the favourites getting turned over yesterday, you never know!
With Happily finishing 3rd in the English 1,000 Guineas, she will be looking to get back to track today in the Irish 1,00 Guineas(4.10) having won two Group 1 races last season including the Grand Criterium in France. She will, like most of Aidan O’Brien’s big guns have come on for the run…..
Now we head off to Paris, Longchamp for some very good racing…..
Laurens(2.37) The duel Group winning filly from last season including landing the Fillies’ Mile at Ascot on Champions day back in October, steps up in trip to 1m 2f in today’s Prix Saint Alary having finished runner up in the English 1,000 Guineas on May 6th….
Almodovar(3.50) follows up his 4th to Crystal Ocean, with the winner going in again(St Leger form) That was his stable debut for Roger Charlton after spending 589 days away from the track, the 1m 1f trip in the Prix D’ispahan should suit and he will have come on a lot for that run…..
And finally, the triple Dubai Gold Cup winner Vazirabad returns to France, looking to land the Prix Vicointesse Vigier(4.25) for the third time in a row. He drops back from 2m to 1m 7f and is faced by the only horse to defeat him in France last season Ice Breeze, will it be these two fighting out the finish today??
Today’s Tracker –
Hopefully, with no other Issues, we will be posting an Interview this evening and have many more on the way for you guys to enjoy and share. That is all for today folks, enjoy the racing….
All the best – Charlie & Rich
