Welcome to arseonlineracing. This is a 100% independent racing website with NO affiliate links, curated by 2 racing enthusiasts from either end of the British Isles. Charlie hails from Glasgow while Rich is from the Isle of Wight… Miles apart but united by the sport of kings….

Hello, I think we should all take a moment to enjoy what a fantastic race at Ascot on Saturday between Crystal Ocean & Enable… It was quite simply breath taking & one that will live long in the memory. The 2 best 5 year old’s in training in the UK going head to head…. Hopefully this week will leave some more memories….

With Goodwood & Galway on at the same time, we are joined by Jamie (@Glen_Colt) who will be bringing us his thoughts on Galway, while Charlie will have his daily selections & Rich will, as always, have the Final Word!

Charlie –


3.00 – Hey Gaman -Won the EBF Stallions King Richard III Stakes Class 1 (Listed) race over 7f at Leicester on seasonal return on the 27th April, beating Larchmont Lad by 2 and 1/4 lengths. Was sent over to Longchamp in France for the Prix du Palais-Royal Group 3 over 7f on the 30th May and won again beating King Malpic by 1 length. Was sent over to Ireland for latest run at the Curragh on the 20th July, when contesting the Paddy Power Minstrel Stakes Group 2 over 7f, Hey Gaman finished 2nd a whole length behind Romanised. If turning up in same mindset shown so far this season should be involved again here with biggest danger being Zaaki.

Win Advised


4.45 – May Gold -Was 2nd on seasonal return at Nottingham when 1 length behind Peggie Sue over 5f and 8y on the 11th May, next race was at Chelmsford on the 31st May and May Gold finished 4th behind You’re Cool. Most recently was sent to Salisbury on the 16th June when beating Youkan by 2 and 3/4 lengths over 5f. If turning up in same mood shown last time should be involved again here at business end of race.

Win Advised


5.15 – Nkosikasi -Has only had 2 starts this season, finished 2nd on seasonal return at Lingfield to Daddies Girl who won by 2 lengths over 7f and 135y on the 22nd June. Was then sent to Newmarket on the 11th July and finished 2nd again beaten a neck by Wings Of Time over 1m. If showing up in same mindset can gain compensation here although will need to step up.

Win Advised

5:20 – Colm Quinn BMW Novice Hurdle – Selection: Fast Buck
French import for Willie Mullins who is having his fourth start for the Champion trainer today. He holds an excellent chance of following up his impressive maiden hurdle win at Listowel last month. This is a steep enough rise in class, but Willie Mullins farms this race and has won it multiple times in the past with horses of similar profile. He will
give his supporters a great chance of starting day 2 with a winner.

6:25 – Colm Quinn BMW Maiden – Selection: Too Soon to Panic
In a maiden usually dominated by Dermot Weld and Aidan O’Brien, this year could see a change with Fozzy Stack’s charge Too Soon to Panic well fancied after a great effort on her debut at Leopardstown. She ran well on to finish third. The form got a big boost when the fourth home Love won a Group 3 at the same track last week. I am hoping that the rain stays away from Galway as good ground looks to be important to her. Big chance of winning if she has progressed from that Leopardstown maiden.

7:40 – Colm Quinn BMW Mile Handicap – Selection: Onlyhuman
Jessica Harrington’s stable are in fine form and have been for quite a while now. The master trainer could well strike in the big race of the day at Galway. Stable jockey Shane Foley has opted to ride recent Limerick scorer Onlyhuman over Marshall Jennings. The Son of Invincible Spirit had a couple of today’s rivals behind when winning at Limerick, with the drop back to a mile no problem for him. The stiff finish of Galway will suit Onlyhuman’s stamina and he can notch up another win while the iron is hot.


Final Word with Rich – 

Thanks chaps, it’s good to have you back Jamie & we look forward to a cracking weeks racing…. I am concentrating on Goodwood…..

2.25 Vintage Stakes… Group 2…. 2YO Only…. 7f….

Pinatubo…. I put Pinatubo up last time out when entered in the Chesham Class 1 Listed Stakes at Ascot on June 22nd. Pinatubo won by 3 & 1/4 lengths from Lope Y Fernandez(Who was the Danger) having won the Woodcote Class 2 Condition Stakes on May 31st by 1 & 1/2 lengths. and now has to give 3Lb to the field, which includes Lope Y Fernandez. It is likely the latter will improve for the previous run while Visini could well end up as the main challenger having finished a neck 3rd to Royal Lytham in the Group 2 July Stakes at Ascot on July 11th….

3.00 Lennox Stakes… Group 2… 7f…

Zaaki…. Has been a revelation since dropping back to 1m from 1m 2f when beating Barney Roy by a neck in an Ascot Class 1 listed race on May 1st and has also sine landed the Group 3 1m Doomed Stakes from Oh This Is Us at Epsom on June 1st. Beaten a nose last time out in the Group 2 Summer Mile at Ascot on July 13th and now tried over 7f….

3.35 Goodwood Cup Stakes… Group 1… 2m…

Stradivarius…. The winner of this race for the last 2 seasons & the Million Pound horse. Since winning this race last season by 1/2 a length from Torcedor, Stradivarius won the York Group 2 Lonsdale Cup and the Long Distance Group 2 at Ascot on Champions Day. Having started this season at York in the 1m 6f Yorkshire Cup when beating Southern France by 3/4’s of a length and then headed to Ascot in the Gold Cup on June 20yh when beating Dee Ex Bee by 1 length to make it 7 wins from 7 runs dating back to May 18th 2017….
The Dangers could come from the above mentioned Dee Ex Bee, who won 2 from 2 over 2m prior to finishing runner up at Ascot & in 4th that day was Melbourne Cup & Dubai Gold Cup winner Cross Counter, either could make life difficult for Stradivarius….

That is everything for you today folks… Thanks for popping by and for your continued support….
