First Sitting looks a horse ready to make his mark
at a higher level after running away with the Racing
UK Handicap at Ayr, yesterday.
Formerly trained by Dermot Weld for Khalid Abdul-
lah, the four-year-old changed hands for 15,000
guineas last October and looks a shrewd purchase
by owners Hambleton Racing.
A winner at Hamilton earlier in the year, David
O Meara s charge was the 9-2 favourite to put a
couple of below-par efforts behind him and did so
with a six-length romp under Danny Tudhope.
Hambleton Racing s Cosmo Charlton said: "He s
a very nice horse and I know Danny really rates him.
He got off him and said he could develop into a 100-
plus (rated) horse, which would be great.
"He hasn t had many runs for us and has been
unlucky once or twice. He s a really good, galloping
horse---more of a stayer than a horse with a real turn
of foot. He s going to go up a fair bit (in the weights),
I d have thought, so we ll see where we go from here,
but hopefully there s plenty to look forward to with
O Meara and Tudhope doubled up with top-weight
Ustinov (100-30 favourite) in the Racing UK Android
App racinguk.com Handicap. Iain Jardine s stable
stalwart La Bacouetteuse came from last to first for
an unlikely success in the Weddings At Western
House Hotel Handicap.
Joint-favourite Braes Of Lochalsh looked the likely
victor after committing before the home turn, with
18-1 shot La Bacouetteuse scrubbed along at the rear.
But the picture changed dramatically in the straight
and while Braes Of Lochalsh faltered, La Bacouetteuse
responded and was eventually well on top as he
passed the post two and a quarter lengths clear of
Stanarley Pic. Jardine told Racing UK: "He gave me
my first winner in 2011. He was my second ever
runner and he won and I think that s 10 races he s
won for the yard now.
Eqinette ticks enough boxes to justify
the first leg of my each-way double on
Kempton polytrack tonight; Amanda Per-
rett s charge could also initiate a double
for veteran jockey Dane O Neill in both
divisions of the 2-y-o Maiden Fillies Stakes
over six furlongs.
Another entertaining eight-race Wednes-
Nine days ago Equinette improved on a
promising debut by chasing home heavi-
ly-backed favourite, Teresar, from the in-
form Henry Candy yard, at a distance of
one and quarter lengths over five; Amanda
must have thought a drop back in trip would
be the answer.
That is sound form but Godolphin-owned
Dismantle can t be dismissed and neither
can a couple of others but with three places
available Eqinette looks a sound proposi-
Half an hour later O Neill climbs aboard
once-raced, Bounce, trained by Candy.
This Bahamian Bounty filly finished a
creditable close-up fifth to Czabo over six
furlongs at Newbury last month since when
Bounce has been given plenty of recovery
time, so vital, and necessary.
Judged on that effort in a strongly-run
race, and the likelihood of considerable
improvement, Bounce must go close on this
excellent surface, which still rides a tad deep
in the last 300 yards; plenty have been
caught out when allowing mounts to ease
off which is why experience pays off. Doesn t
There are two afternoon fixtures with
stacks of two-year-old races at Nottingham
and good to soft Salisbury where once-
raced River Echo looks gilt-edged division
two of the Maiden Stakes over a mile.
River Echo, also by Equiano, stayed on
strongly over seven at Newbury eleven days
ago, finishing second of 17, beaten three
lengths by Tabarrak; solid form.

Hope this isn t too soon!
Thierry Jarnet has dis-
missed claims from Golden
Horn s owner-breeder Antho-
ny Oppenheimer that his star
colt could beat Treve "easily"
in Sunday s Prix de l Arc de
Speaking to At The Races on
Monday evening, Oppenheimer
was confident his Derby, Coral-
Eclipse and Irish Champion
Stakes hero Golden Horn would
be triumphant if his favoured
"If we had good to firm
ground, I think we d win easily.
I think we ve got a great
chance," he said.
"Treve is not that mad on
really good ground and is not
that brilliant. I would be very
surprised if we couldn t beat
her and beat her quite well---
that s on good ground, not
Treve is hot favourite to
become the first horse in his-
tory to win the Longchamp
showpiece three times in Paris
at the weekend and Jarnet
could not have been happier
with his big-race mount after
partnering her in her final piece
of serious work yesterday
Told about Oppenheimer s
comments after the workout,
Jarnet said: "I m not so sure
about that. When I saw his last
race, I was not that impressed.
"Yes, he wins like a good
horse, like a tough horse, but
now he has run many times
already this season and we will
see if the Arc might not be one
race too many for him. How-
ever, he is a very good horse."
Treve followed her lead horse
on the grass track of Les Aigles
before quickening clear in her
usual exuberant style.
Jarnet insists he is concen-
trating on the race itself rather
than Treve potentially becom-
ing the first ever horse to com-
plete a hat-trick in Europe s
premier middle-distance prize.
"We did the same sort of
gallop we did last year. I let her
gallop and find her stride
behind the lead horse and she
did her usual thing in the final
two furlongs when she quick-
ened well. She is well," said Jar-
"It (winning three Arcs) has
never been done before. How-
ever, it is not my priority. The
most important thing for me
is that everything goes well.
We would obviously like to fulfil
our dream and to win it."
At the age of 48, Jarnet is in
the twilight of his career, but
asked whether he could poten-
tially retire from the saddle if
Treve does come home in front
this weekend, he said: "I have
achieved most of my goals, but
there is still one race that I
would love to win and that is
the Prix du Jockey Club.
"However, I m not going
after it as such. We shall see if
that it happens or not. Should
we win on Sunday, it wouldn t
change anything. I have no
plans to stop riding, as there
are still many moments to be
enjoyed on the track."
Treve s trainer Criquette
Head-Maarek also gave her seal
of approval to the morning
She said: "My impression is
good. She is well, she was not
pulling, she was very relaxed.
The pacemaker was going a
good pace and she came very
easy. Thierry thinks she is in
top form, so let s keep our fin-
Four people were arrested in connection with an
alleged assault on jockey Aidan Coleman at South-
well racecourse yesterday afternoon.
The incident occurred after the last race on the
card at 5.10 pm, the Book Christmas At Southwell
Racecourse Mares Novices Hurdle, in which Coleman
finished last aboard Sawwala.
Nottinghamshire Police said in a statement two
men and one woman were arrested on suspicion of

Coleman sustained "minor injuries" and is under-
stood to have returned home after the incident.
A statement issued by Nottinghamshire Police

and another woman for obstructing police.
"The victim sustained minor injuries.
"If you saw anything please call Nottinghamshire
Police on 101, quoting incident 651 on the incident

Southwell stewards said in a statement that two
racegoers gained entrance into the jockeys changing
room, with the incident referred to the British
A stewards report read: "The stewards held an
inquiry into the circumstances surrounding an incident
which occurred after the last race in the jockeys
changing rooms after two members of the public

Pogson and Tom Scudamore, two of the jockeys
