Proposed might just provide a tenuous
pointer to Derby' form in the sixteen-run-
ner Maiden Stakes over ten furlongs of
good' ground Sandown Park tonight.
Richard Hannon's charge was beaten fif-
teen lengths by Aidan O'Brien-trained Hans
Holbein in the group three Chester Vase a
fortnight back; allowing for the fact this
Richard Hannon-trained Invincible Spirit
colt was eased considerably by Sean Levey
in the closing stages, when the cause became
hopeless, that was by no means a poor effort
in the context of this immediate task.
Significantly his previous time-handicap
mark was a deal better!
Rated 95, which is a bit high, realistically,
Proposed has no serious rival bar the pro-
gressive, twice-raced King Of Country,
owned by Godolphin and trained by Charlie
Appleby, not one to tilt at windmills!
Chances are Dark Deed will be favourite,
now the powerful yard of Sir Michael Stoute
is firing, but Proposed gets his chance and
I'll bet he's able to score under champion
jockey Richard Hughes.
Incidentally Hughesy' faces a tough task
retaining the jockeys' championship because
the newly-formatted situation will suit ex-
champion Ryan Moore ideally, and he's
gushing winners; earlier this week we laid
Hughes at 1/2 knowing his attention will
be somewhat focused elsewhere from August
onwards as he purchases yearlings in readi-
ness for a new career, training!
Sahara is quietly fancied for the 3-y-o
Maiden Fillies' Stakes over ten furlongs of
Goodwood which is also expected to ride
good' for a seven-race programme.
Chris Wall's charge is marginally best-
in' and must improve for further experience;
Sahara should be backed each-way and sim-
ilar advice is given for Attain in the Appren-
tice Handicap over ten furlongs at good to
soft' Nottingham; Aaron Jones rides, that's

Updates are few and far between but this

Proposed looks acceptable
William Haggas can begin to make more
ambitious plans for Wonder Laish after the
stoutly-bred colt made it third time lucky in
stunning fashion at Lingfield, yesterday.
A half-brother to Hong Kong Cup winner
Akeed Mofeed, Wonder Laish shaped with abun-
dant promise when third on Windsor debut last
autumn and was only narrowly denied when
odds-on for his reappearance at the same track
Sent off at 6-5 for what appeared a match
with Godolphin's Royal History (5-6 favourite)
in the Telegraph Maiden Stakes, Wonder Laish
was soon bowling along in front in the hands of
With Royal History running well below the
form of his introductory runner-up finish at
Kempton, it was plain sailing for the Haggas run-
ner, but it was still difficult not to be impressed
by the change of gear that carried him to a run-
away 15-length success over Smart Motive.
The Newmarket handler, however, is not getting
He said: "I'm not sure the race turned out to
be any good as the favourite ran appallingly. We
were probably flattered, but he did it well and
I was hoping he'd win.
"I think the horse that beat him at Windsor
last time, Richard Of Yorke, must be pretty smart.
We'll go for a handicap now, whether that will
be at Royal Ascot or not, I'm not sure.
Ground conditions at the Curragh are expect-
ed to dry out by the time of the two-day
Guineas meeting this weekend.
The going was described as yielding yesterday,
but with dry weather forecast for the rest of
the week, officials are expecting it to be towards
the good side for Saturday and Sunday.
General manager Paul Hensey said: "It's been
dry and bright here and the forecast is for fair
weather between now and the weekend.
"On Wednesday morning, the ground was
yielding and we're expecting improvement before
the weekend. I don't think we'll be too far away
from good for the start of the meeting.
"It may be on the easy side, but obviously
we will monitor it over the next day or so."
Hensey is looking forward to two-days of
high-class sport at the headquarters of Irish
Flat racing headlined by the Tattersalls-sponsored
1,000 and 2,000 Guineas.
Even the enforced absence of the Dermot
Weld-trained Free Eagle from the Tattersalls
Gold Cup on Sunday with a head cold has not
"It was disappointing to hear the news about
Free Eagle. He had been an intended runner all
winter long, but it's a fantastic race even without
him," he said.
"To have The Grey Gatsby and Al Kazeem is
great and now that Free Eagle is not running
maybe Dermot will run Fascinating Rock.
"It would have been lovely to have Free Eagle,
but it should still be a tremendous race.
"The 2,000 Guineas looks a fascinating race.
Ivawood is a horse that could put it up to Gle-
neagles and Roger Varian is quite sweet on Belar-
do. He felt the ground was too quick for him
at Newmarket and it should be more to his liking
"It has the makings of a top-class race.
"The 1,000 Guineas looks very good as well
on Sunday. Devonshire (Willie McCreery) was
supplemented for it.
Curragh all set
for big weekend
