Laurens Is A Steal In The Sun Chariot

There’s Group 1 action in England and France today as well as the return of a Grade One winner over fences in Ireland on what is a highly entertaining day of racing this afternoon.

Laurens Is A Steal In The Sun Chariot
Unfortunately we now know that Alpha Centauri finished the Matron Stakes with a career ending injury and was gallant in defeat behind Laurens that day but that shouldn’t take away from the winner.

Laurens takes on a field of nine rivals and Coolmore dominate the opposition with their French raider Wind Chimes disputing favouritism for Newmarket’s Sun Chariot Stakes.

Aidan O’Brien sends over a trio headed by Clemmie but Laurens is a four time Group 1 winner and can add another top flight success to her impressive CV here.

The 1,000 Guineas runner-up has performed admirably all season with the Yorkshire Oaks being the only exception and Leopardstown proved that dropping back to a mile certainly wasn’t a problem.

Laurens is a course and distance winner and Karl Burke issued a very positive bulletin on his three-year-old yesterday and…

she is one of the best bets of the day.

Fahey Could Have Fruitful Afternoon
Peter Fahey was among the winners at Gowran Park yesterday and has a notable runner at Newmarket today when sending over Hamley for the penultimate fillies handicap there. Hamley would certainly look to hold every chance in that Newmaket contest as she seemed to win with a bit in hand at the Curragh on Irish Champions Weekend and although the handicapper has upped her for that run, this wouldn’t look as difficult an ask and…

Hamley should go close at A decent price.

Earlier in the day Fahey could instigate a cross-channel double with Small World at Gowran Park.

David Mullins has some nice rides this weekend and he is booked to ride Small World for Fahey with a lovely racing weight.

Small World was a winner over 2m6f at Ballinrobe when he absolutely bolted up during the summer and stepping up in trip to 3m shouldn’t be an issue here.

The somewhat frustrating De Plotting Shed keeps the weights down here and Small World might be well suited by going around here with just 10st3lbs on his back and although he needs to produce a career best effort…

Small World could strike for a yard returning to top form.

Recommended Bets:
Laurens (11/4) – 3.15 Newmarket
Hamley (6/1) – 5.00 Newmarket
Small World (10/1) – 3.05 Gowran Park
