From a friend who said:

"PS could be going to the Queen Anne according to the trainer. Buick jumped off and said he was world class. But always a risk as he had a few sheep lose in the top paddock. Cracksman was bloody huge. Won’t be beaten over 2400m this year baring bad luck. Forget the opposition. I brilliant run is a brilliant run full stop. Only a novice doesn’t understand this. I’ve explained how Winx leg speed is off the charts- for Cracksman it’s his length of stride. Two of the largest strides we’ve seen in recent years are BC and Frankel- both peaked at 26.5ft. Cracksman is already just over 26 feet. Huge"

Hello,
I had a look at the starters of "1000 Guineas" (fillies) today (8-10 hours behind your time).
 
I noticed 2 listed runnes "Billesdon Brook", "Anna Nerium" are descending from "Anna Oleanda" (Helmet/Epaulette) to Anna Paolo, a German damline  and further back to Adria.
 
Soliloquy has an AUS/NZ damline tracing to Cinna.
 
regards, Ticino

While this should go in the North American Thread...

German bred A Raving Beauty (GER) (Mastercraftsman (IRE) - Anabasis (GER))  won the G3 Beaugay Stakes at Belmont Park, NY, USA in fine style.

Previous start, 2nd in the (G1) Premio Lydia Tesio in Rome, Italy.

Also the G1 Man O' War Stakes was won by Hi Happy (ARG), who back in 2015 won the G1 Carlos Peligrinni but was not successful on the West Coast in 4 tries but has come around after winning the G2 Pan American at Gulfstream Park.

High class internationals seem to beat the locals on turf - and that is no surprise!

Thu:
G2 Middleton Stakes 4YO+ F&M 1m 2f 56y Coronet (Dubawi - Approach) was many times seeing the tail of Enable last season, but returns this season bursting through with 2f to go and with Dettori easing her down. Won for the 1st time since Royal Ascot and don't be surprised if she shows up there again!

G2 Dante Stakes 3YO 1m 2f 56y - Roaring Lion (US) (Kitten's Joy - Vionnet by Street Sense) returned to winning form as the 3/1 fav. Eased down to the line. Breeding is outstanding. Unfortunate that the dam passed away this year. Gosden trained and will be looking forward to Epsom!

Listed Westow Stakes 3YO 5f Main Desire (IRE)  (High Chaparral - Purple Glow) Lightly race filly winning for the third time straight! Had not run for a year since winning 2YO Listed race at York last year.  12/1 !!!!!

Fri:
Listed Marygate Fillies' Stakes 2YOF 5f
Listed Micheal Seeley Memorial 3YOF 7f 192y

Listed Micheal Seeley Memorial 3YOF 7f 192y - Threading (Exceed And Excel - Chaquiras) won as 1/1 fav after two withdrawn at the gate (including the favorite Sheikha Reika)) and only 4 ran. Returned to winning form on the track she won last time in August.

G2 Yorkshire Cup 4YO+ 1m 5f 188y - Stradivarius (Sea The Stars - Private Life) started the 4/6on fav and arguably could the best long distance runner in Britain today. Won by 3 lengths. Last year won at Royal Ascot before winning the G1 Goodwood Cup and finished of with a 3rd in the G1 St. Leger and a third on Champions Day in the G2 Distance Cup. Royal Ascot beckons with a shot at the Gold Cup!
Of interest Max Dynamite finished a fair 4th and Wicklow Brave led but then tired to finish in 7th.

Mark Johnston favouring Dee Ex Bee for Investec Derby tilt

Mon 21 May 2018

https://www.racinguk.com/trainers/mark-johnston" rel="nofollow - Mark Johnston  believes Chester Vase runner-up  https://www.racinguk.com/horses/dee-ex-bee" rel="nofollow - Dee Ex Bee  is more likely to run in the Investec Derby than Dante second  https://www.racinguk.com/horses/mildenberger" rel="nofollow - Mildenberger .

Both colts are owned by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, with Dee Ex Bee having finished second in both his races this season by a narrow margin, chasing home Crossed Baton at Epsom and Young Rascal at Chester.

Mildenberger won the Feilden Stakes at Newmarket, but was put in his place by Roaring Lion at York last week.

Speaking of Mildenberger, Johnston said: “The owner also has Dee Ex Bee, who is in the Derby. He ran really well at Chester and I think if one of the two runs, it is more likely to be him.”

Another Classic contender for the yard is  https://www.racinguk.com/horses/elarqam" rel="nofollow - Elarqam , who was fourth in the 2000 Guineas and he will now head to the Curragh on Saturday.

“Elarqam should go to the Irish Guineas and all is great, couldn’t be better,” said the Middleham handler.

“We had an open mind. Sheikh Hamdan spoke to me a few days after the Guineas and he was most concerned how the horse had come out of the race.

“The answer was he had come out well and I did think he would be sharper for it. He said ‘let’s aim for Ireland if it all goes well’ and that’s where we are going.”

Betting tonight has the Guineas winner in a one horse race to take the second leg of the Triple Crown. Probably no hope to stay the trip of the third leg, not that they'd even attempt it. He has to stay the 2400m tonight first which is a bit of a doubt on the dam side. Grand dam Sumora ( Danehill ) only got 1000m and mum Maybe ( Galileo ) stayed little more than 1400m. Will class alone get Saxon Warrior home or maybe a stable mate like Delano Roosevelt?

I thought Roaring Lion would hold on for 2nd but he seemed to flatten out just a bit in the end.
Good run.

Masar, had travelled a bit. Was in the US for the Breeder's Cup Juvenile Turf and was 6th to Mendelssohn. Ran poorly on the dirt in Dubai in March but seemed to get much better when he dumped Roaring Lion as the odds on favourite in the G3 Craven Stakes at Newmarket. His 2000 Guineas was probably a throughout as the 5/2fav as 3rd.

In hindsight 16/1 for him was really quite backable at least if you backed him in the 2000 Guineas there was no reason not have something at those odds.  Especially if you backed Godolphin horses.

Think it was Kingman's third starter.  

Interestingly the Oz-bred shuttler Kuroshio sits 2nd on the British First season sires list with 4 winners from 10 starters.

Yes no surprise really as Kingman didn't have his first start until end of June over 1400m.
 
I watched a Kuroshio win a few weeks ago. Unlike Kingman's I'd have expected them to go early or not at all. The latter stallion should have a lot more runners in the second half of the season as more UK 2yo maidens are then run at 1400m and a mile.

The other two were both placed and ran good races over 1200m. Both should be winning soon.

Super interesting runner tonight at the Curragh in the shape of a full brother to American Pharaoh named St Patrick's Day. Two runs last year for Bob Baffert and now with the O'Brien team. Ran second at first start to a horse that then was beaten less than a length in the Gr1 Del Mar Futurity. At his second start beat the subsequent fourth behind Justify in the Kentucky Derby.  
 
Withdrawn twice already this month so no certain starter. In race four tonight 12-25am Melbourne time.

Back at the tail and ridden early. Got back on the bridle in the straight and looked to be coming to take the race before fading slightly in the last 100m to run third. Was laying about a bit and didn't look comfortable on a fast turf surface.

Thanks Brudder, 2min-31+sec quite reasonable for such an undulating track over one and a half miles, watched Winning Post a few days ago they had the whole family there , great little interview with such a close knit family, Donnacha the son who rode that winner is going to break a few hearts, he's a bit of a looker not unlike his mum,

A powerful sustained run by Roaring Lion in the G1 Coral Eclipse Stakes at Sandown provided another 3YO the spotlight when he edged out Saxon Warrior to win by a neck. Derby Winner Masar was scratched unfortunately.

Big win for that horse.  The horse in the white nose roll seemed to stumble badly and dropped out to last ?  Hope he was OK ??

Very interesting filly by Sea The Stars wins Irish Oaks on the weekend. The dam side of her pedigree very strong with the mare having previously produced numerous Italian Oaks winners.

Glorious Goodwood on the Cards.

G1 Goodwood Cup Stakes - 2 miles
Stradivarius  (4/5on) continues to win these long distance of 2 miles in GB and connections should seriously start thinking of planning to come Down Under and strut his stuff.

It would be a complete waste of time IMO given the weight he'd receive and performances of similar types previously in the MC.

58 kgs should not scare him off.

He probably should not get that weight.

Don't know if he'll come or not.

However he's won the equivalent of about Aus$1.65mthus far and would immediately earn twice that with success in the Cup.

A very interesting maiden - race one at the Curragh tonight in just under an hour.

Sea Of Class and Lah Ti Dar showed they're most likely the best pair of fillies in Europe in consecutive races at York last night. They may clash in Paris next start but the latter may also need another run before stepping up to Gr1 company after a long mid season layoff.

That may be the case over 12 furlongs (2400m) but Alpha Centurai is possibly the best over a mile.

A note has already be in made in the Melb. Cup thread but I'm putting this into here because according to media reports Goldolphin's interests for Best Solution is the G1 Caulfield Cup.

Anyway the horse looks like a battler winning Germany's top race the G1 Grosser Preis Von Baden at Baden-Baden.

I think the CC is probably more his go. I liked his win from a few weeks ago in the Grosser Preis Berlin, small field but had to made up a bit of ground and get surge between runners late.

Harry Angel jumped ok tonight in the Gr1 Sprint Cup at Haydock but was way too fresh and keen before fading out of the placings at the finish. The Tin Man finally got his nose in front after being third and second in the two previous runnings of the race. A well deserved win under Oisin Murphy

Fashion's Star an interesting first start winner at Newbury tonight. She's by Sea The Stars out of a half sister to Pakistan Star. Bred by owner of Sea The Stars Christopher Tsui. Made 100K at Goffs September sale as a yearling then 400K in France at Arqana ready to race sale in May. A nice earn for Brendan Holland and Grove Stud.

A German raced dam, so interest for Ticino there. 


An interesting addition to the Euro training ranks is Gavin Hernon -
