As you’d expect from this yard, Trueshan just kept on improving last season, rounding off with a fantastic effort when the front to pull 14 lengths clear of the remainder in beating Hamish on his final start. That’s incredibly strong form and stand Trueshan in great stead ahead of his starting point in listed company at headquarters. A slight bit of rain that we have had should be in his favour and he seems flexible regarding conditions
Continued her progression through the ranks last season ending up with a tremendous effort over at the breeders cup when going down fighting. They have had quite a bit of rain overnight so the underfoot conditions will be on the easy side and that will prove no problem as Fanny Logan has already been fully effective under a wide range of conditions, she should be able to give away the 3lb penalty.
Looks another one off the Cheveley Park conveyor belt of winning machines with the only blip in his profile so far coming under soft conditions at the straight mile at ascot. Please do keep an eye on the weather, but I would imagine we would need torrential rain in this part of the country for the ground to come up very testing. Davydenko is a triple digit runner and this may represent one of the last opportunities for him in handicap company and he looks the proverbial group horse.
This is incredibly tough for group 3 company with five of the runners having a rating well in excess of 110. Elarqam was arguably unlucky at the highest level group one company in the Juddmonte international behind Japan. He was short of room at a vital stage and could never quite recover but still ran an excellent third. Our rider is a perfect 3-3 on him
Looked a decent middle-distance prospect in the making when getting her head in front over a mile on her second outing. Queen Daenerys stepped up dramatically into group one company next time in the Fillies mile and wasn’t disgraced despite being outpaced on the downhill part of the track behind quadrilateral, not given a hard time and staying on in the closing stages this mile and a quarter is a perfect starting point and she’s also had a wind operation.
Surprisingly at the age of six last season he found an extra leg from somewhere and managed to run with credit up at the highest level towards the back end of the season after a busy campaign. Here he’s back down in grade 2 listed level and reunited with jockey who gets a particularly good tune out of him. The vital ingredient is that Safe Voyage is a perfect 4-4 around here at Haydock and he should be able to maintain that 100% record today.
The Irish raider Millisle comes back over bidding to plunder the big prize on a track that she knows very well. It was a smooth success in the Cheveley Park group one where she fairly flew past the field like they were standing still and hit the line very well. The trip looks within her compass and the trainer has reported her to be in rude health at the moment, she could have too much pace for the favourite who looks as if she’s a mile and a half runner in the making.
