French raiders claim spoils at Royal Ascot

French raiders claim spoils at Royal Ascot”

She certainly looked the part at Ascot last week and her Keeneland win in April looked pretty smooth to me.

Instead, I'll be focussing my attentions on SHEIKHZAYEDROAD who looks a rock solid each-way bet at 12/1 in places.

Sheikhzayedroad finished third in last year's edition and while trainer David Simcock is happy with his horse, he admits he faces a hard task.

And yesterday she was attempting to become only the second female to ride a Royal Ascot victor, 30 years after Gay Kelleway won the Queen Alexandra Stakes on Sprowston Boy.

She was perhaps just feeling the effects of a long season that kicked off with a win in April when beaten by Alice Springs in the Matron Stakes and was widely expected to make a victorious 2017 bow in a Lingfield Group Three.

"He's got to be the best I've trained, especially breaking the track record here today, and that is not being disrespectful to the other horses".

The last quarter of the race's 210-year history is littered with the names of horses who have won the race a few times.

"He could go to the Breeders' Cup or something like that as it would suit him".

BIG ORANGE was one position behind Sheikhzayedroad in Dubai back in March and has since won the Henry II Stakes at Sandown.

"Davy and Andrew were
happy with him at home and they were really looking forward to it. You've got to hope and be positive and we couldn't be happier with the horse". If the ground is fast then he will run a huge race.

Sheikhzayedroad won the Long Distance Cup on Champions Day past year and trainer David Simcock expects him to run his usual solid race in what is another leg of the Qipco British Champions Series.

"However, Mikael Barzalona will not look back on the race with any great pride having delivered the Andre Fabre-trained Usherette far too late and only secured third. You have to keep going otherwise the rest will catch up with you".

Horse racing season in the United Kingdom is in full, erm, gallop, and for Dubai's royals, it's a good chance to catch up with some of their British counterparts.

"Hatta was my first horse and people were surprised when she beat the favourite at Brighton", he said. She won the Nell Gwyn Guineas trial over today's distance of 7f, before running very well to come third in the 1000 Guineas.

"She is very bright in herself".

Sweet Selection ran out an impressive victor of the Cesarewitch last October and looked good when landing the Sagaro Stakes here in May. We went a good pace, Jessie wanted to find out a bit more about him and he was very good on the day.
