Ryan Moore is relishing the prospect of
Churchill showing his class in the Dubai Dewhurst
Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday.
The Aidan O Brien-trained colt was one of 14
left in the Group One showpiece at the confirmation
stage, for a race that is regularly seen as one which
helps define the champion two-year-old.
Churchill is already the ante-post favourite for
the Qipco 2000 Guineas and Investec Derby due
to his wins at Royal Ascot and in the National
Stakes, and is the 4/6 market leader to give his
trainer more big-race glory at the weekend.
O Brien could also run the classy Capri, Intel-
ligence Cross, Lancaster Bomber, Pennsylvania or
Moore, fresh from riding Found to victory for
O Brien in the Prix de l Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly
on Sunday, told At The Races: "He s a very exciting
colt, I m hoping he s going to be there and I m
very much looking forward to riding him."
Charlie Appleby might go to the well once more
with Blue Point, narrowly denied a Group One win
over six furlongs in the Middle Park. Stablemate
Bay Of Poets has also been left in.
Richard Hannon s Larchmont Lad, winner of
the Tattersalls Stakes, and Saeed bin Suroor s Thun-
der Snow, runner-up in the Champagne Stakes,
set a decent standard.
However, the home defence is led by Andrew
Balding s unbeaten South Seas, who beat Jean---
Luc Lagardere second Salouen easily in the Solario
Stakes, and John Gosden s Frankel colt Seven Heav-
Mark Johnston s Rich And Famous should not
be discounted, while William Haggas admits Cham-
pagne Stakes winner Rivet will have to step up
again if he is to strike Group One gold.
The Fastnet Rock colt has won two of three starts
this term, putting his debut defeat behind him
when winning the Convivial Maiden at York before
making a seamless switch to Group Two company
in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster last month.
While Rivet won by upwards of three lengths at
York, he had only a head in hand over Thunder
Snow on Town Moor and although Haggas rates
that rival highly, he knows more is needed of his
charge this time.
brings up century
Pat Smullen rode 100 winners in a season for
the third time when Making Light ran out a ready
victor in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breed-
ers Fund Median Auction Fillies Maiden at Lim-
Dermot Weld s youngster was going some way
to helping Smullen forget the disappointing effort
of Harzand in Sunday s Prix de l Arc de Triomphe
Having won the Investec Derby in June and the
Dubai Duty Free-sponsored Irish equivalent just
weeks later, Smullen feels those two hard races
probably took the edge off the Aga Khan s colt.
He said: "I was a little bit disappointed as we
were expecting a big run, but he just didn t fire at
all. I think he s a horse who put so much into the
first half of the year and had very hard races in
two Derbys and maybe he gave his all in the first
half of the year. It may have left its mark but I
have no excuses with the ground.
"He has been a brilliant racehorse and is a dual
Derby winner so you can t take that away from
him. He s a very, very good horse, but was just a
better horse in the first half of the year."
Of his century, he said: "That s 100, it s great.
It s my third time doing it."
Getgo is tasked with completing his
recent sequence and recouping losses in
the Maiden Auction Stakes over seven fur-
longs of good ground Brighton today, when
Catterick also opens a turf meeting on
soft with three successive two-year-old
As mentioned several weeks ago so many
trainers weren t able to get their juveniles
on racetracks, due to persistent viruses, and
patience had to be adopted, they had no
choice, it isn t feasible to risk thoroughbreds
which aren t 100per cent fit and healthy.
Now it s October, cool Autumn has kicked
in and for the next few weeks we ll be
besieged with a plethora of first-season
competitors, indeed competition will be
fierce, mine will be all about accurately
computing the time-handicap for readers
to make handsome profits. Should be an
interesting tenth month during which the
clocks go back an hour to welcome win-
ter!2-3-2- are the last form figures for ultra-
consistent, David Lanigan-trained Getgo,
mount of Shane Kelly, aboard when this
ex-celebration colt began the aforemen-
tioned run of form figures six weeks ago.
Getgo, a 50/1 shot, was three lengths off
On the TH Getgo has twice hit similar
marks, which should just about be good
enough, but there are several lightly-raced
types that will almost certainly be on the
premises and the reason why we will play
each-way with three places available, if
they all run!
As ever this remains a major factor
because bookmakers will go to the lowest
depths for a withdrawal thus scuppering
the your opportunities and making it only
two places. Despicable.
This columnist seems to be the only who
notices such practice but that is my job, to
look after the people who have contributed
to my lifestyle for so long; it s really appre-
Swag is another we ve been following
unsuccessfully but it s significant champion
apprentice Tom Marquand replaces Hollie
Doye on Richard Hannon s progressive
charge in the nursery over seven furlongs;
what beats this will win!
For the nap, it s cut and dried. Vanderbilt
comes out clear best-in for the six-runner
Maiden Stakes over a mile and significantly
Jim Crowley s agent, Tony Hind, has got
his man the ride.
Get on this treble
11.10 Vanderbilt (nap).
