Ruler of the World---
a top class horse
The 2013 Investec Derby on Saturday was not
a satisfactory race but that does not by any
means imply that it was a bad race.
Time will be the judge of that, as it is with
everything, but any contest in which the hot-
favourite underperforms as badly as Dawn
Approach did on Saturday will have a shadow
cast over it and the same could even be said of
his victory in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas.
His principal rival on the book at Newmarket,
Toronado, palpably failed to produce his best form,
was subsequently found to be coughing and it
was left to the unfancied Glory Awaits to chase
the jolly home.
It was the performance that we all expected
and one that confirmed the widely held opinion
that this was a top-class colt. There s no reason
to think otherwise but if he fails to bounce back
from the weekend s show of temperament then
we will be left to dissect his juvenile career and,
firstly, his Classic victory and, at the moment, it
isn t shaping like a vintage renewal.
Seven of those behind Jim Bolger s colt in May
have run since and they have been beaten by 14
lengths, 10, three (when eighth of 16), 12, six and
by a length and a quarter in a maiden when odds-
on. Mars fared the best of all in finishing sixth,
beaten three-and-three-quarter lengths in the
He did, of course, treat those rivals with disdain
and cannot be judged alone on the subsequent
performance of those that finished behind him,
but it is a stick that can be used to beat him for
those keen to do so. And so it was last year with
Camelot - will it be any different for Ruler Of
Unraced as a juvenile after suffering setbacks,
he was a narrow winner of his maiden before
winning the Group Three Chester Vase over 12
furlongs in first-time cheekpieces.
He has shown no signs of temperament but
only of inexperience and he brushed aside some
inferior opposition on the Roodee having tracked
Ryan Moore had him further back at Epsom
which might not have been ideal in a race that
was run in a time more than a second slower than
the Coronation Cup earlier on the card.
However, he was well placed to launch his chal-
lenge down the centre of the track and showed
by far and away the best turn of foot to quicken
past his rivals and seal the race.
There was some trouble in behind with the
slow fractions leading to the field being tightly
grouped but only the connections of Ocovango
could seriously feel aggrieved.
Compromised in part by his draw in one, Pierre
Charles Boudot attempted to thread his way
between Mirsaale and Galileo Rock with his mount
travelling all over those in front of him.
Having barged his way past one runner, the
door was immediately shut in his face by an in-
flight Ruler Of The World who was running down
the camber at pace and he could only stay on at
the one pace thereafter.
He may or may not have been an unlucky loser
but the way that he travelled suggests that he s
a colt of considerable potential and it will be fas-
cinating to see how he fares before an intended
tilt at the Prix de l Arc de Triomphe.
Libertarian finished strongly down the outside
but he lacked the tactical pace to put himself in
a position to win the race and, while the same
may be true to a degree of Mars, he did at least
have a clear run.
Richard Hughes was last turning in and appeared
to have the option of challenging outside Liber-
tarian without conceding too much ground.
It s all about "Movement" and Frankie Det-
tori in the 3-y-o handicap over an extended
mile of Windsor tonight when ground con-
ditions are forecast good to soft and the old
Thames-side venue will be absolutely packed
They will probably witness Dettori s first
winner since his six months ban finally con-
cluded last Friday because Movementneverlies
is a progressive Medicean filly with an easy
flowing stride, ideally suited to an easy surface
and strongly fancied on the back of her work
on Charles Hills Faringdon gallops.
Last month Movementneverlies, a previous
Wolverhampton winner, ran on well to finish
a creditable fourth to Anecdote over seven fur-
longs at Newbury, where the front three just
got away from the pack. This extra distance
should be ideal but Harry Bosch, mount of
Hayley Turner, is a time-handicap danger.
Anything ridden by "daily earner" has to
be respected, she is riding superbly, superb
judge of pace and I m hoping Dettori doesn t
allow Harry Bosch too much rope.
Earlier Hayley drives her new vehicle from
Leicester to ride twice-raced Realize in the
ten-runner Maiden Stakes over six furlongs;
what beats Hughie Morrison s charge will win!
Obvious serious rival is William Haggas-
trained Noble Deed but an absence of 229 days
is off-putting and Realize looks a solid each-
way bet with three places on offer in a race
littered with moderates.
Above The Stars is one of five "decs" for
the Selling Stakes over six furlongs of the Mid-
lands venue; clear top-rated and talented
apprentice, Racheal Kneller, claims 5lbs appren-
tice allowance. A outstanding bet and an ideal

The well-backed favourite Intello eased
home to record a comfortable success in
the Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly.
The Andre Fabre trained colt had been
backed almost to the exclusion of everything
else in the 19 strong field following an eye-
catching run in defeat in the Poulains
The son of Galileo would surely have
gone close in the Longchamp Classic with
a clear run but there were no such problems
for him on Sunday as he stepped up a quar-
ter of a mile in trip.
He broke well for Olivier Peslier who
was able to settle his mount in fourth, albeit
a little wide, as Jim Bolger s Beyond Thank-
ful set out to make it a decent gallop.
Peslier soon had Intello tucked in on the
rail in third and he was able to ease his
mount out in the straight and the Feilden
Stakes winner picked up impressively when
given the office.
The pair had no trouble in seeing off the
challenge of stablemate Sky Hunter who
was passed for second close home by
Morandi as the leading fancies dominat-
ed.It was a third French Derby success for
Fabre in a race where the British and Irish
raiders failed to make a serious impact,
with Ann Duffield s Yorkshire hope Willie
The Whipper faring best of the raiding
party in sixth.
Jim Bolger s Loch Garman was well beat-
en, as was Andrew Oliver s First Corner-
stone in the hands of Frankie Dettori.
Intello is favourite with some bookmakers
for the Prix de l Arc de Triomphe at
Longchamp in October but Sky Bet make
him their 7/1 second favourite with their
Andrew Twitchen highlighting concerns
over the extra distance.
"We have gone 7/1 from 12/1 about Intello
after an impressive win," he said.
"He deserves his place as second favourite
but isn t guaranteed to stay on breeding,
although that shouldn t be a problem with
his professionalism and running style being
Intello eases home at Chantilly
David Wachman is in no rush to make
definite plans for Galileo Rock following
his tremendous run in defeat in the Investec
A hugely impressive winner of a Leopard-
stown maiden on his juvenile debut and a
fast-finishing third on his return in the
Sandown Classic Trial, the three-year-old
was an outsider for the premier Classic at
However, clearly a sound stayer, the son
of Derby hero Galileo stayed on determinedly
to finish a close-up third and Wachman is
looking forward to the rest of the campaign.
Wachman said: "It was a good perform-
ance and he vindicated what we thought he
would do. We would have liked a stronger
pace, but I think that would be the case for
a lot of them, and we were very happy with
how he ran.
"He s in the Irish Derby and all those races
and we ll just see how he is. There s no rush
to make any definite plans.
"He looks like he s going to be a smart
horse, hopefully. Let s hope he stays sound
and he stays lucky."
Asked whether the Ladbrokes St Leger at
Doncaster could be a target later in the season,
Wachman said: "I think we re entitled to put
that into our plan, but we ll just see how
things progress through the year."
No rush for Rock
Movement to put
Frankie on track
