En­able is in good shape for that Arc dou­ble

The Racing Paper - - Tv Races And News - Dave Young­man’s New­mar­ket let­ter

THIS is an im­por­tant week­end in New­mar­ket for trainer John Gos­den as star filly EN­ABLE is due to work on the grass for the first time this year be­fore her at­tempt to win her sec­ond Arc at Longchamp next Sun­day.

EN­ABLE did not ap­pear at the New­mar­ket open week­end due to the heavy rain last week­end but did a nice breeze over a mile on the Al Ba­hathri gal­lop un­der Frankie Det­tori ear­lier this week. She is in fine form and will be try­ing to em­u­late Arc hero­ine TREVE and be a dual Arc win­ner.

EX­PERT EYE worked nicely un­der reg­u­lar rider James Sav­age on the Limekilns trial ground this week and will now head to France next week­end to run in the Prix de la Foret for the Stoute sta­ble. The son of Ac­cla­ma­tion pleased the crowd last Sun­day when he worked up War­ren Hill at the open day.

ADRIAN McCarthy is back rid­ing work for Peter Chap­ple – Hyam and was at the con­trols when the un­raced YOU LIT­TLE RIP­PER worked on the Al Ba­hathri on Tues­day morn­ing.

This son of Rip Van Win­kle is owned by Aus­tralian Paul Makin and hope­fully will make his first ap­pear­ance on a race­course next month. I have liked what I have seen of this Colt.

LIGHT AND DARK is an­other as yet un­raced young­ster do­ing well in his work here at HQ. This son of Shamardal, trained by Saeed bin Suroor for Godol­phin, has im­pressed me very much when I have watched him work.

He is due to work early this morn­ing on the Godol­phin pri­vate Chip­pen­ham Hill gal­lops and I am look­ing for­ward to see­ing that ac­tion when Pat Cos­grave put him through his paces. It is hoped to have him out for his first race very soon.

NEXT Sun­day at the Arc, as well as EN­ABLE we have New­mar­ket horse SEA OF CLASS. She will have only a light weight so James Doyle is in for a hard week of wast­ing so he can do the weight. She will run only if it is good ground.

CRACKSMAN also needs rain to run in Paris – if not he will wait for the Cham­pion Stakes next month at As­cot.

His work re­cently un­der Rob Havlin has shown him to be right back to his very best.
