Hello and welcome to a Final Word – Deauville Special, brought to you by Charlie & Rich, the two racing enthusiast’s that run arseonlinetips. Charlie is from Glasgow, while Rich is from the Isle of Wight, either end of the UK but together we bring you the freshest racing selection’s, articles and Interviews from the racing world….
A fantastic Saturday for us here at HQ but more about that later….
Charlie is taking Sunday off, he has been working his fingers to the bone trying to sort out our site and get it fully operational, with a place for every thing and every thing in it’s place. Yesterday he landed 2 from his 3 selection’s with Rebel Streak & Hamada both winning…. Si I think he deserves a day off!
Rich’s Final Word –
Thanks Charlie, it was a fantastic day from both of us, this section landing a few winners, let’s hope that continues…. We are off to Deauville today….
1.35 Kerlorlay Group 2 Stakes 1m 7f…..
Marmelo was a neck runner up to the machine that is Vazirabad on seasonal return before heading to York and landing the Class 1 Listed Grand Cup by a neck from Weekender in June and then head back to France to step up in to Group 2 company at Longchamp on July 14th to take the Maur.de Nieuil by 3/4’s of a length….
2.45 Prix de Morny Group 1 Stakes 2YO Only 6f.…. Where do we start with this race as it has a bumper field, which is filled with quality that really wouldn’t be out of place at Newmarket or Ascot…. We will look at the main contenders….
Pretty Pollyanna is 2 from 3 start and landed the Duchess of Cambridge stakes at Ascot in impressive style on July 13th by 7 lengths from Angel Hideaway, who has since won the fillies’ group 3 Princess Margaret stakes and with Main Edition(7th) also landing the Group 3 Sweet Solera stakes is the obvious one to start with….
But she has to take on Signora Cabello, who since winning a Bath C4 5f fillies’ novice stakes has improved no end. She landed a York 5f C1 Listed contest in May before taking the Queen Mary(G2) at Ascot on June 20th by a short head and had no less than 8 different winners in behind that day, including Group 3 winners So Perfect & Little Kim. She headed to France to land the Robert Papin(G2) over 5 & 1/2 lengths on July 23rd from Sexy Metro by a neck.
Karl Burke sends Comedy, who has won her last 3 including a Doncaster C5 6f contest from Star Terms, who is 2 from 2 since that day and then landed a C/D Group 3 DeCabourg stakes by 2 lengths from Kodyanna on July 28th….
Of the rest….
Aidan O’Brien also has runner in Land Force, who has won 3 from 6 this season, landing the last 2 starts including a Tipperary C1 Listed by 2 lengths before landing another Tipperary contest from Maria’s Diamond, who Mark Johnston sends over to re oppose today… e also have Sexy Metro who was 2/2 until losing to Signora by a short head and is a listed winner….
Who will Win??? Well my guess is it will be between Pretty Pollyanna, Signora Cabello & Comedy!
3.20 Jean Romanet Group 1 Stakes 1m 2f…..
Bateel was 3 wins from 5 starts and 2 runner up spots in 2017 and is a Group 1 winner after landing the Vermille 1m 4f Stakes last September. Won on seasonal return over 1m 2f at Saint-Cloud by 1 & 1/4’s lengths to pick up the Group 2 Cornida Stakes and looks on paper a ready winner…. But we have Urban Fox in the field, who was a impressive 3 & 1/4 length winner of the Pretty Polly stakes at the Curragh on July 1st and was runner up to Wild Illusion by 2 lengths at Goodwood on August 2nd, both wins over 1m 2f and it reunites the Haggas’/Doyle combination, that has been fantastic this season….
Of the rest Aidan O’Brien sends Rhododendron on a recovery mission, who has been well below par this season …. Lady Frankel was a 1& 1/2 length runner up on season return in a 1m listed race at this course and now steps up an extra 2f…. while I’m So Fancy is a duel C1 listed winner and steps up in class while Nonza has won the last 3 starts and was a Listed winner at Maisons – Laffitte over 1m 2f and is also up in class….
So for me it is between Bateel and Urban Fox….. Bateel should win, but this is racing and we never know!
While I am at it, I would like to wish Charlie Fellowes all the best this afternoon as he send’s Crimson Rosette to try and land the Group 2 De Pomone 1m 4f Stakes at 4pm. Crimson landed the 1m 2f Chalice Stakes(C1 Listed)last time out and is now up in class & trip…. Good Luck!
Thanks for popping by folks, we really appreciate your support and we hope that everything will return to normal next week… NO INTERVIEW today due to site maintenance….Thanks for your patience
All the Best – Charlie & Rich
