Racing Ahead - - LARKSPUR -

King Ge­orgeVI & Queen El­iz­a­beth Stakes As­cot (29 July)

HIGH­LAND REEL drifted in the mar­ket as the rain came down at As­cot. In the cir­cum­stances the top-rated pick ran a good race. But there was no mis­tak­ing the chances of EN­ABLE, and John Gos­den’s su­per filly en­hanced her grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion and is now favourite for the Arc in Oc­to­ber.

Sus­sex Stakes Good­wood (2 Au­gust)

RIBCH­ESTER laboured on atro­cious ground and his cause was not helped by the un­will­ing­ness of pace­maker Toscanini who never got go­ing.The rain meant that the duel on the Downs with Churchill did not ma­te­ri­alise and even al­low­ing for the con­di­tions the Godol­phin Colt should have won the race, the fact he was only beaten a neck by Here ComesWhen af­ter run­ning a cu­ri­ous race only served to un­der­line this view. But that’s rac­ing.

Nas­sau Stakes Good­wood (3 Au­gust)

An­drew Bald­ing stole the Sus­sex Stakes with Here Comes When and top-rated BLOND ME at 16/1 was a de­cent each­way chance in the race where sec­ond-rat­edWINTER added to her grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion.

The form read­ers would have been on both EN­ABLE and WIN­TER and both horses were high­lighted in my two selec­tions against the field in the Word­press blogs.

So where are we with are RAF re­sults now? Be­low I have re­pro­duced the re­sults for‘Win only’and‘Each-Way’with the e/w odds at one quar­ter to stakes of a half point each-way. See ta­ble be­low

Not­with­stand­ing Blond Me’s ef­fort at 16/1, back­ing both Bal­let Con­certo and Ulysses each-way at odds of 8/1 im­pacts on the to­tal profit fig­ure although we wouldn’t be say­ing that if they hadn’t won. Next month we will look at the Arc de Tri­om­phe and dis­cuss the next it­er­a­tion of the TOP Rac­ing Sys­tems.Happy Rac­ing!
