Good Chances For My Father In Arc And Newmarket
We had two winners over the weekend; our horses are running well so I’m delighted with how the racing went. Long may it last!
Lets Twist Again won nicely at Navan on Saturday and Ligeti really likes Dundalk so it was great to have the few winners.
Yesterday we had the Beresford Stakes in Naas and my Father had the first two home which was great to see. Saxon Warrior, the winner, was very impressive and travelled well. He really handled the ground and looks like a brilliant horse. He looks perfect for some of the classics next year.
Next weekend is a huge weekend of racing with Enable up at the top of the betting for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe . I’ve been hugely impressed with Enable so far.
Obviously she’s a very short priced favourite for the race and rightly so; she’s done nothing wrong all year.
She’s a truly amazing horse. There’s an extremely high calibre of horses in the race between Ulysses and all of my Father’s runners too including Eminent. It has all the ingredients of being a top class Arc again this year. It looks like a very competitive race and I’m looking forward to it.
There’s also some great racing from Newmarket at the weekend which will surely give some clues for next year. It should be a great weekend.
Clemmie has certainly caught the eye. She runs in the Cheveley Park Stakes which is shaping up to be a top quality renewal.
She’s getting better with each run and I’m really looking forward to seeing how she performs at Newmarket.
