Forward of Solar Chariot Day on ITV Racing, The Prime Three is in a great run of type following the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe card final week.

All three of Sunday’s alternatives returned revenue and the weekly column lastly discovered a big-priced winner as Kelina fought off the problem of Kinross to win the Group 1 Prix de la Foret at 16/1.


The ultimate @BestOfBetsUK collection of Arc Day is first previous the put up at 16/1 within the Prix de la Foret 😃

Hopefully this could proceed on what’s an action-packed Saturday as I’ve three horses to think about from Ascot and Newmarket.

It’s at all times exhausting to stroll away from certainly one of your cliff horses as you at all times ask your self the query of ‘what if’.

Fortunately, coming into the 2023 Flat season I had managed to shake my attachment to Emaraaty Ana, nevertheless, I’ve fallen off the wagon and now firmly consider he’s the more than likely winner of the Listed Rous Stakes at Ascot at 11/4.

The seven-year-old stalwart returns to 5 furlongs for the primary time since his third within the 2022 Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes behind Highfield Princess and The Platinum Queen, although he did end an excellent second in the latest Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Dash behind Caravel over five-and-a-half furlongs.

Big upset! Caravel wins the @BreedersCup Turf Dash for @Tyler_Gaff and @bradcoxracing! #BC22

Add his second to Winter Energy within the 2021 Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes and facile victory at Hamilton in July 2021 into the combination and his report over the minimal distance begins to learn favourably.

Regardless of his age and 31 runs below guidelines, Kevin Ryan’s Shamardal gelding seems to be in good type based mostly on his neck second to Lezoo – a Group 1 Cheveley Park winner – within the Listed Hopeful Stakes earlier this season in addition to his truthful third within the Listed Garrowby Stakes at York final month.

Admittedly, I did query if I used to be lacking one thing after I noticed his value of 11/4 this morning, however his attract stall two seems to be accounted into his value as excessive attracts had been benefitting on the straight course at Ascot yesterday.

I’m hopeful that his class and a little bit of luck could make up for his draw as a result of if this occurs, Emaraaty Ana holds a robust probability to return to the winners’ enclosure for the primary time in over two years.


2:40 Newmarket: Queen Emma @ 5/2 with William Hill – 3pt Win

Regardless of my fixed barrage of Tony Carroll propaganda, the William Haggas secure ranks fairly extremely on the listing of my favorite trainers within the Flat recreation.

From the jockeys they use to how Haggas is in post-race interviews and the whole lot in between, there’s loads to love.

Somerville Lodge has eight runners throughout 4 tracks to control right now, although Queen Emma is the one I’m most excited to see within the 1m4f fillies’ handicap at Newmarket.

The three-year-old by Saxon Warrior comes into her third handicap contest in good type following two victories and a second in her final three races.

— Goodwood Racecourse (@Goodwood_Races) August 25, 2023

A kind of successes got here at Goodwood in late August the place she travelled neatly into the race and, after a little bit of encouragement from Adam Farragher, confirmed her three rivals a clear set of heels; the second, Madame Ambassador, bolted up by 4 lengths at Newmarket on her subsequent begin, suggesting the shape is dependable.

Moreover, she was equally as spectacular throughout her first victory of the season as she got here four-wide across the bend at Lingfield and managed to make up the five-length deficit between her and the runner-up Marmara Sea with ease; equally to her Goodwood win, the shape seems to be good as Marmara Sea received on handicap debut at Haydock lower than two months later.

Stays on strongly! Queen Emma will get off the mark on the fourth try below the power-packed @TomMarquand drive for William Haggas at @LingfieldPark…

— At The Races (@AtTheRaces) July 18, 2023

Though she did not make it a hat-trick final trip, the softer situations probably stumped her probabilities barely, so the return to a greater floor ought to swimsuit right now.

All in, the reserving of Frankie Dettori can solely be a optimistic transfer for Queen Emma who seems to be to carry an excellent probability within the 2:45 at Newmarket.


4:45 Ascot: Existent @ 11/1 with Boylesports – 1pt EW

I’ve caught with the theme of horses working in yellow and black silks at Ascot right now as within the finale, Existent deserves an opportunity at 11/1 with Boylesports.

On paper, a lot would counsel that trusting Stuart Williams’ five-year-old by Kingman is a courageous transfer contemplating the final time he discovered the winners’ enclosure was 20 runs in the past, but I’m reluctant to depart him alone because of his well-handicapped nature.

That’s as a result of his official ranking of 90 is 10 kilos beneath his Goodwood second in August, 12 kilos beneath his promising fifth over course and distance final month and 4 kilos beneath his final profitable mark.

That’s an unbelievable fall by means of the weights for a horse who completed fourth within the Group 2 Temple Stakes in late Might, simply half a size behind the following Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes winner Stay In The Dream.

Out of stall 10, Existent is the most effective horse on this race on naked type and with Hector Crouch, a jockey who is aware of him, again within the saddle, he seems to be an honest each-way play within the last race at Ascot.
