A busy weekend ahead with 4 Stakes runners
We have an exciting weekend with 6 runners, 4 of which are in Stakes races.
Today at Beverley, Tenaya Canyon lines up in the Beverley Bullet Sprint (Listed). This is a very competitive Listed race but it looks wide open and if she can produce her best form then I think she can be very competitive. She is drawn in 3 so will need to jump and get out and hopefully she can get that deserved Listed win under her belt.
Amichi heads to Newmarket for the Somerville Auction Stakes. He is in good form and I am looking forward to seeing him run in what is going to be a big step up in grade. He is going to improve for the run so what we see today won’t be the finished article given his lack of experience, especially on grass.
Great Ambassador also runs at Newmarket in the Jenningsbet Hopeful Stakes (Listed). He looks fabulous and this looks a good opportunity for him to get his head back in front. He is capable of winning this and I think the ground is going to be fine for him so hopefully he can get his head back in front and then we can aim a bit higher later in the season.
Stormy Antarctic heads to Goodwood for the Group 2 Celebration Mile today which is a big ask in normal circumstances but the race has cut up this year, and I think he’s got a great chance of being right in the frame despite being the outsider. He looks fantastic and although he hasn’t run for a long time we know he goes well fresh and the ground is going to be on the slow side of good which will suit him. Fingers crossed Kieran can get a good tune out of him and he runs a big race.
Monopolise heads to Windsor this evening and hopefully he can have a good experience. He looks really well and is in good form but I have not done a lot with him since his last run so I am sure we won’t see his true colours until he is stepped up in trip.
Tomorrow, Sunset Bay steps up to Group 3 company. She heads to Goodwood for the Supreme Stakes which is going to be a very tough ask but with only 6 runners it is worth a shot. She is in good form and I think she would have come on for her first run at Haydock.
