entered for Day 14
The John O'Brien trained Desert
Dancer will attempt to get back on the
winning trail when he goes to post for
the feature event on Saturday at Santa
Rosa Park, Arima.
Seven horses have been declared to face
the starter in the $41,225 purse event with
newcomer Errazuri from the Harriram
Gobin barn taking along top-weight of
57 kilos. Yosenger Serrano is booked to
partner this thoroughbred and the hint
should be taken.
Also in the line-up is One For The Road
stablemate of Erruziri and this horse which
has been in good form will be ridden by
Ronald Ali. Another which must be re-
spected is Hello from Bobby Persad barn
and this one carries a penny-stamp of 40
kilos with apprentice Learie C Seecharan
in the saddle.
When entries were taken yesterday a
total of 99 horses took entry for the ARC
Day 14 nine race programme.
Post time is 12.30 pm.
Here are the declared runners, riders and
weigh for the card.

Classical Times is in the 'cert' category for a
3-y-o Maiden Stakes over six furlongs of 'good
to firm' Redcar today; Paul Mulrennan's mount
shouldn't be extended, never mind beaten!
Odss are likely to be prohibitive, nothing like those
we are expecting for our 'classic special' on Saturday,
but Classical Times represents a definitive 'anchor' for
our daily patent which serves all needs and precludes
gambling problems for avid readers of this column.
Too many bets are cause of desperate financial de-
mise; those able to stick, rigidly, to the DP only play
three doubles, three singles and a treble.
It's simple and indeed devastating, not to mention
enjoyable, given my record of continually producing
time-figure 'goodies' for decades; last week was a
My tried and tested modus operandi which is all
about computing a time-handicap daily from scratch,
has certainly stood the test of time!
Considerable experience has taught one to realise
that a simplistic, uncomplicated, approach is best
and, of course, mine is to concentrate on sprint-type
Twice-raced Classical Times achieved a useful TH
mark when fifth on Peter's local Newmarket Rowley
Mile track last October and providing she doesn't
do anything untoward (like fall in a rabbit hole!) it
will be interesting to see her handicap after this third
qualifying run for handicaps.
Running in tandem will be Lingfield where Richard
Hannon-trained Pillar Of Fire encounters polytrack
for the first time in a 3-y-o Maiden Stakes over a mile.
Judged on a juvenile run over six furlongs Pillar Of
Fire has plenty in hand, just a question of Hannon
knowing extra distance is a requirement.
Later thrice-raced Benjamin Thomas should end a
vexing sequence of seconds, and recoup recent loss-
es, in yet another 3-y-o Maiden Stakes over seven
furlongs of 'good to firm' Musselburgh.
Three solid bets, without doubt.
Sweet success in Sagaro for Morrison
Betfred Cesarewitch winner Sweet Selection was
an impressive winner of the Longines Sagaro Stakes
on her seasonal reappearance at Ascot yesterday.
The five-year-old improved 34lb last year and she
stepped up another notch in this Group Three contest
under Silvestre de Sousa, who was landing a treble
on the card.
De Sousa had Hughie Morrison's mare well-placed
throughout just off the pace set by stablemate Nearly
Caught and she took up the running inside the last
two furlongs following a battle for the lead from the
As Nearly Caught faded in the closing stages, Sweet
Selection lengthened clear for a ready success from
the running-on Prince Of Arran.
Nearly Caught held on for third as very little got
into the contest from off the pace. Sweet Selection is
now 16/1 from 33s for the Ascot Gold Cup at Sky Bet.
Hughie Morrison: "Nearly Caught would leave
Sweet Selection a furlong behind on the gallops be-
cause she's an extremely moderate worker. She's never
exactly shown off, but that's the thing about stayers,
if they do too much at home they're not going to stay.
It was a brave decision to keep her in training and
on today's performance she's improved yet again.
We have to have a go (at the Ascot Gold Cup). We
know she stays and what a dream to have a filly like
that to go to war with. It's great having these proper
