20 Nov Hayley Moore previews the British Champions Sprint Stakes at Ascot
The Hayley Moore of sky Sports Racing guides One through the fancies in the Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes at Ascot.
It seems set to be a breaking curtain-raiser. The conditions look as though theyre going to be ahead of this years Champions Day on the testing aspect thus horses that act on earth on the side, heavy, are the ones.
After winning it in 17, the Tin Man will be searching. Sands looks like he will have. Advertise has experienced a profitable season in sprinting distances, since being kept, he is also proven to be flexible on the ground and his record at Ascot is another favorable.
Many of the runners have obtained every other on many times and opposite form together with one another so it will be a case of who is in greatest heart on the afternoon and that will go farther than the six furlongs as they will really need to watch it out.
Whenever the Martyn Meade secure were beneath a cloud he had been attempted in the 2000 Guineas at the start of the Flat season after finishing second to Too Darn Hot in the Dewhurst but neglected to shape up into a miler. Sprinting has been made his match.
Showcasings son is projecting towards the 1m mark in earnings . He will confront the most intense conditions hes ever lined upon in his nine-race career up to now, but theres hope because his mommy Furbelow is by Pivotal he will manage these conditions.
He remained on when the blinkers went on for the first time and won the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot on good to soft ground. He ran a fantastic race in behind a Six Sovereigns, who flipped the form about on ground that was quick with Advertise at the July Cup and then came out.
Advertise was again back in the winning groove at Deauville over six-and-a-half furlongs at August when we saw him in action when hammering Brando with a throat.
Connections have needed to prevent this Haydock Sprint Cup, after a poor scope and also have swerved the Prix de la Foret so hell be seen to his best to British Champions Day on this race because his final swansong before a stallion career.
Trainer Kevin Ryan is nicely represented with Hi Youmzain along with seven-year-old Brando. Pivotals son is consistent and has another great season. He is a horse that has adequate form on earth and he runs nicely at Ascot. Much like The Tin Man, he is not getting any younger but hes tough.
The worry is that a blood-vessel burst after travelling well at Haydock, prior to being defeated for next by Waldpfad, subsequently picked up. Perhaps he was not right that day, but Id be worried off the rear of that.
The son of Shamardal of roger Varian is currently showing a real liking to the monitor, four victories at Ascot and three season, he shot the Victoria Cup on good to soft at May over seven furlongs. Then he won the Wokingham over six furlongs on good. He flopped in the July Cup at Newmarket at the level thats a worry, but it was business and away from Ascot.
He then ran for third-place complete prior to return to winning ways in Ascot from the Group two Bengough Stakes over six furlongs on gentle ground. Hes a real Ascot pro that could see him be aggressive .
Fantasy Of Dreams lined in the race this past year and beat 1 home. Since then he started the season well with wins at Windsor and Chelmsford. This had been his next start of the time, in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at which he was supporting Blue Point.
He is by Dream Ahead and contains some great form on soft earth but he will need a revival after his recent run which was nicely and eighth behind Hello Youmzain in Haydock. His run after Royal Ascot at Newmarket in the July Stakes never saw him figure. Hopefully he will be brought by Ascot back on the right path.
The son of Kodiac only began racing in August this past year and is already a winner four days from seven starts adding at the highest level when shooting the Haydock Sprint Cup ahead of The Tin Man, when he was the fifth three-year-old to win the race in the previous six years.
He won it and came into that race. The target after Haydock was British Champions Day at Ascot in the expectation hed have his ground that is preferred.
Hello Youmzain was formerly next to market in the Commonwealth Cup – he was slightly unsettled from the stalls thus was slow away and ended up knocking towards the back before demonstrating a fantastic turn of foot to combine the leaders yet just didnt quite have enough kick in the last furlong.
But we know he will adore the floor so that he could reverse the form. He is very unexposed and runs consistently to get a sprinter in his career so far.
After an extremely comfortable success in the Recorded Waterford Testimonial Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday using a sixth success of the year when pulling clear with a four-and-a-half lengths comes into this with excellent form.
A entry to the race will see him line up rising through an established liking for testing ground conditions and the ranks with an ever-increasing handicap mark.
Make A Challenge started the year will now boast a markers of 109 and rated 66 for Denis Hogan. A nicely bred son of invincible soul from Godolphin which price these connections just #6,500 in the sales.
Hes a horse of a lifetime for relations and reminds you that anybody can dream while buying a racehorse. It might be a fairytale finish if he runs well, let alone wins but that he will now need a career.
We watched her back in actions for William Haggas finished at Longchamp on Arc evening level in the united kingdom.
Thankfully, heading and waiting to France was the perfect move as she kept on well to choose the Prix de la Foret before City Light in what was a competitive renewal to allow it to be back-to-back successes at the race for this for the daughter of Fastnet Rock.
Really soft ground generally brings so relations are individual as to where she runs, and the terms of Saturday are exactly what she relishes.
Certainly One Master is thriving at the moment and she heads into the race in terrific form following a good season so far (like third at the Queen Anne Stakes and second in the Falmouth Stakes) but her best run was out time. We know she will keep going above the six furlongs.
We have not seen a lot of the past years winner this year and for that reason you can back him. But back to Ascot and on earth which brings the very best of him then we can see him bounce backagain.
After Deacon Blues won in 2011 fourth on his very first run in this race because a behind Muhaarar and then he was then victorious in the race 2016 giving coach James Fanshawe his next success in the contest.
He was fifth in 2017 when sent favourite in last years renewal when Librisa Breeze won and just seventh behind Sands. He is currently lining up for the fifth time at the race and that he comes after a good run on his final start into it in great form.
The Tin Man had to go down in defeat if he could reel at Newbury in July after unsatisfactory in Hello Youmzain on soft earth and stumbled from their stalls in Haydock. The Tin Man has some practice that is stalls recently so hopefully he will be sharper away at Ascot.
Hes a classy sprinter who will love the conditions, he won the Group 1 Sprint Cup at September 2018 on heavy ground so that the more testing the better and he comes in to the race off the back of a smart part of work onto the newly reopened trial ground in Newmarket. No doubt well be watching champion jockey elect Oisin Murphy was produced beneath by him.
1 MASTER has been running well all season and on ground ideal for her. In which she ran a very great race in defeat for fifth position last year later she won Longchamp she led into Churchill Downs. This season relations have choices but look eager to bring her to Ascot which I respect. She will have to reverse the form with Advertise and Brando from Deauville in August, but that I sense and shell get her Group 1 she has won and also been put.
