Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : August 20th 2015 Contents Easton Angel has an outstanding oppor-
tunity of giving popular Northern trainer
Michael Dods a day to remember at York
this afternoon when this Dark Angel filly
faces eight rivals in the group three,
£160000, Lowther Stakes over six furlongs
of good ground, which will ride like a car-
pet, perfect for any thoroughbred on this
Dods must be trembling in anticipation,
Easton Angel is a real special in similar
mould, ability-wise, to stable-companion,
Meccas Angel, a live hope for the Worlds
Championship sprint on the Knavesmire
two days hence.
On the time-handicap Easton Angel rep-
resents a solid bet, so unlucky to run into
an American monster at Royal Ascot and
hampered at a vital stage in the group two
Cherry Hinton on the Newmarket July
course six weeks ago; don t oppose.
We should get a price, Lumiere is all the
rage on the visual impression of beating
trees on debut and others are being highly
touted, sure to be heavily-supported; don t
flinch, entertain an Angel!
Excessable is fancied to recoup nationwide
losses in the DBS Premier Yearling Stakes
over six furlongs for two-year-olds worth
£147000 to the winner!
This would mean reversing placings with
Lathom, a progressive Compton Place colt
which landed a similar sales race at Newbury
over five furlongs last month when heav-
ily-backed favourite, Excessable, probably
raced on the wrong side and finished a close
fourth, ridden by Duran Fentiman.
On this occasion both are drawn high
and much-improved David Allan renews
association with Tim Easterby s charge; they
are two relevant factors because you can t
beat the draw and jockeyship is at a premium
when serious betting is involved.
Allan is definitely one of the top three
Northern-based jockeys, the annual Racing
Research 2014 riding effect figures supply
On the time-handicap Lathom is mar-
ginally better-in but Excessable seems more
likely to appreciate an extra furlongs and at
fair odds is worth chancing each-way with
three places available and so much dead-
wood making up a field of hopefuls; they
will quickly be left behind on the strength
of a fast pace.
Far from the madding crowd at Chepstow
where Just Glamorous really should make
it fifth time lucky in the 2-y-o Maiden
Stakes over five furlong of a good undulating
surface, ideal for speed which Ron Harris
charge possesses, in spades.

When Gleneagles was declared a non-runner
Golden Horn was supposed to face a fairly
straightforward task in the Juddmonte Interna-
tional at York, but no one banked on Arabian
Queen causing a 50/1 upset.
The race had been billed as a clash for the ages,
the Investec Derby winner against a dual Guineas
hero in Gleneagles, not forgetting the promising
Time Test, hugely impressive at Royal Ascot and
owned by Juddmonte Farm s Khalid Abdullah.
Throw in The Grey Gatsby and top-class Aus-
tralian raider in Criterion and it was no surprise
that Arabian Queen, the only filly in the race, was
sent off as the rank outsider, bar Golden Horn s
pacemaker Dick Doughtywylie.
However John Gosden s pacemaking idea for his
unbeaten Epsom victor unravelled right at the start,
with the seven-year-old initially missing the kick
and Robert Havlin then shooting into a six-length
lead meaning he was ignored by everything else.
Silvestre de Sousa, champion jockey-elect in the
absence of the retired Richard Hughes and the
injured Ryan Moore, was content to lead the rest,
with Frankie Dettori never too far behind.
And that was how it stayed until two furlongs
out when Arabian Queen hit the front, with Dettori
looking like he just had to press the button to seal
However, after 14mm of rain on Tuesday the
ground was good to soft and Golden Horn took
an age to pick up. He did eventually hit the front
briefly, but Dettori was getting increasingly animated
in the saddle and the filly was fighting back.
De Sousa is rarely beaten in a tight finish and
the Brazilian managed to get her head back in front
and his mount was going away at the line, winning
by a neck to cause the shock of the season so far.
She is trained by David Elsworth, the man
responsible for the Desert Orchid and who also
won this race back in 1990 with the brilliant In
His last top-level winner was Absalom s Lady
in the 1994 Christmas Hurdle, while on the Flat
it was Seattle Rhyme s 1991 Racing Post Trophy
Straight after the race Elsworth bolted to the
car park, briefly declining to speak to anyone having
seemingly felt affronted at the lack of attention
given to his filly in the build-up.
He also declined to receive his trainer s prize in
the formal presentation, saying that he was upset
at not having been invited with other connections
to a lunch hosted by the sponsors, but speaking
later he said: "She s a filly of the highest class.
She s tenacious and loves to battle.
"If we hadn t turned up today, they would be
hailing the favourite as the best horse since Frankel.
"She s certain to stay further, her dam (Barshiba)
won over a mile and five furlongs. It took me three
years to work out her best trip, but I worked this
one out a bit quicker."
For De Sousa, a big win to go with his numerical
accumulation so far this season was just what he
He said: "She s not an easy filly to deal with,
own ideas about the game, but is obviously very
"I had a clear run, picked the pacemaker up two
furlongs out and I always felt I had a bit left.
"I couldn t say I was confident coming here,
she was 50/1, but she had been third in a Group
One on her last run, she s bred to get further and
ran right to the line."
The Glenn Mendez-trained Control
Unit will make a quick return to the
track in an attempt to get back on the
winning trail in Saturday s feature
event for horses rated 90-60 on the
turf track at Santa Rosa Park, Arima.
Beaten three lengths last time out by
Clermont County, Control Unit will race
on the turf for the second time since
being named champion imported juve-
nile last year. The SIR-owned thorough-
bred has been allotted 53 kilos on the
1,000 metres event and will take the
world of beating under Wilmer Galviz.
Top-weight in the event is the Harold
Chadee-trained Slewjero which will
have his burden lessened by the three
kilos claim of Jovike Boodramsing. The
speed Indian Medicine is also in the line
up and will be ridden by Prayven Badrie.
When entries for Day 29 was taken
a total of 104 horses took entry for the
nine race card.
Post time for the first event is 1 pm.
