There is some decent action on Racing TV on Sunday to conclude what has been a superb week.
The Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival was replete with top class performances and I hope you took my hint in last week’s column that Japan was a live one in the Juddmonte International.
This gelding is progressing well. After a promising start to his career at Thirsk in June he went on to win at that venue next time out and then defied a penalty to win at Beverley last time out in decisive fashion.
He has plenty of pace, which he will be able to make the most of from his plum draw in stall 1 and there is no doubt he is the most progressive horse in the race.
This is his first run off a mark (82) which seems fair and he can complete a hat-trick of wins.
I know this horse has a poor win record and that for many he is something of a cliff horse, but he is very talented and this could be his day.
He ran very well to be third in the Lennox Stakes here last time out where, as he often does, he found trouble in running.
This race is a shade less competitive and if he gets the breaks late on he should go close.
I am not convinced the track will suit Limato, conversely Suedois has a tremendous record here and whilst it will be a white knuckle ride he should be supported.
Nigel Tinkler has had a superb season and he can grab another winner here with Dutch Coed, who won here last time out in good style.
Two starts ago connections made the running with him but reverting to hold-up tactics last time out saw him back in the winner’s enclosure.
Despite winning four of his past five starts he still gets to race off a mark of 65 and at a track where he has already won twice this season he can go in again.
A strong pace will suit and I expect him to be patiently ridden again before surging to victory late on.
Ryan Moore has a good book of rides at Yarmouth and Solid Stone looks to be just about the best of them.
The drop back from 10 furlongs to a mile seemed to suit him at Sandown last time out, where he was edged out by the useful Maamora and in turn pulled five lengths clear of the third.
There is no doubt there is more improvement in him at this trip and his mark of 94 seems to be fair given the big time figure he posted at Sandown.
He looks certain to run a big race with improvement to come at this trip.
