Rich will be covering the Group races from the Curragh & Deauville as we have done for the past few weekends, hopefully it will be a good day….


Lets start with Deauville…

1.35 Listed Stakes… 3YO Only… 1m…

Twist & Shake… having finished a neck runner up in a 1m Fillies’ Listed race at York in May was stepped up to Group 1 level next time out on June 21st at Ascot in the Coronation Cup, where she finished a 3 & 1/2 length 4th of 9 and today drops back to Listed level with a great chance….
DANGER… Fount… Was previously 2 from 2 over 1m prior to being stepped up in trip to 1m 2f in the Prix Saint- Alary Group 1, finishing 6thof 11, some 5 & 1/2 lengths back in the field and now drops back in trip, with a drop in grade….

2.50 Prix Robert Papin… Group 2…. 2YO Only… 5f 102yds…

A’Ali…. Beaten a neck in a Ripon Class 5 5fNovice Stakes on debut on June 5th before winning by the same margin in the Group 2 5f Norfolk Stakes at Ascot
DANGER… Jolie… 2/2/3/1 in 4 runs since April 30th when making a winning season return. Finished 3rd over 6f before being beaten a head in the last 2 starts at Maison – Lattiffe in a Listed race & Chantilly in a Group 3, both back over 5f…

4.35 Prix Messidor… Group 3 Stakes… 1m….

Top rated 115 is Study of Man but hasn’t run over 1m since making a winning race course debut in September 2017 by 2 lengths. Has been running in Group 1 company since June 2018 when winning the prix Du Jockey Club. Has finished runner up on last 2 starts, to Waldgeist by 4 & 1/2 lengths in the Prix Ganay Group 1(1m 2f) by 4 & 1/2 lengths &last time out to Zabeel Prince in the 1m 1f Prix D’Ispahan in May & has been off since. Now eased in grade & drops back in trip…
DANGERS… If Study of Man fails to fire today then Impulsif, who has won the last 2 starts over 1m by a combined distance of 11 lengths& stepping up to Group level could sneak the prize along with Trans Fluors, who has improved for each run this term. Finishing a 3/4’s of a length runner up in the 1m Prix Bertand Group 3 to Vintager on June 16th….



3.10 Sapphire Stakes… Group 2…. 5f…

Soldier’s Call… 1/2 length 3rd to Garrus in the Westow Listed Stakes at York on season return in May before again finishing 3rd behind the now retired, Blue Point in the Kings Stand Group 1 at Ascot on June 18th. The top rated horse in the race at 114 and can over turn the form with re- opposing Garrus, who was a 3/4’s of a length runner up in the Group 3 Sprint Stakes at Sandown on July 6th.
There are 2 C&D winners in the field and they could well spring a surprise.. Soffia, who is 3 from 3 at the Course and the winner of the Group 3 Ballyogan Stakes in June by a neck & has won here over 6f . The other is El Astronaute, who like Soffia has won the last 2 starts and landed a C&D handicap by 1 length on June 27th, these 2 would be my alternatives to Soldiers Call, who I fully expect to win!

3.35 Kilboy Estate Stakes… Fillies’ Group 2… 1m 1f…

Move Swiftly…A winner over 9 & 1/2f at Wolverhampton so the step up in trip from 1m is no issue here today. The winner of the Duke of Cambridge Stakes 1m Group 2 at Ascot on June 24th by a neck & the likely winner of this….

A quick recap of Yesterday…
Charlie had 1 winner from 3 Selections, while Star Catcher won the Irish Oaks , which was the only winner Rich had….

All the Best – Charlie & Rich
