London – Kachy can land an overdue success on Tuesday in the EBF Stallions Prestwold Conditions Stakes at Leicester.
Tom Dascombe’s speedster should finally get the conditions which will allow him to run to the best of his ability. He has run in several big sprints this year, but probably falls just below the highest class.
Nevertheless, he has still shown blistering speed, most notably in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot where it looked fairly obvious he would be seen to better effect at 1000m.
He does stay 1200m in a lower grade, but is a horse who just wants to get on with things and should get the chance to do that in this small field.
Also, Dascombe has reached for a hood for the first time and for a horse who has shown the tendency to drift in the past,that should help.
On a decent card, Sir Michael Stoute’s Aim Of Artemis should have plenty of followers in the first division of the British Stallion Studs Apollo EBF Fillies’ Novice Stakes.
From a beautiful Ballymacoll family, she is a half-sister to Stoute’s Abingdon, who is a useful stayer.
With that in mind, stepping up to 1400m will certainly suit after running with plenty of promise when third on her debut in a decent Newbury maiden over 1200m.
In the second division, Saeed bin Suroor’s Beautiful Memory is worth a very close check in the market as a half-sister to the top-class Rio De La Plata.
It is worth nothing she holds an entry in the Rockfel Stakes.
Mick Appleby’s Qeyaadah was very unlucky last time out to catch Bertiewhittle on the day he finally decided to win.
As a result, he races off just 0.5kg higher mark in the Weatherbys Handicap and Silvestre de Sousa should have another winner.
At Catterick, the drop in class might enable John Quinn’s Wotabreeze to return to winning ways in the Catterick Twelve Furlong Series Handicap.
The fitting of first-time cheekpieces does not instil full confidence, but it is a long time since he ran in a race at this lowly level.
Iain Jardine has been hitting the headlines recently but his skills are no secret to northern racegoers.
His Alfa Queen has shaped encouragingly the last twice and might be up to defying a mark of 70 in Newcastle’s 42nd Street Classic Sausage Fish & Chips Fillies’ Handicap.
William Haggas’ Humble Hero drops in trip for the Q Platinum Fish & Chips Handicap and Daddys Poppit in the Goldensheaf Batter Flour Fish & Chips EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes and is worth an interest. – Press Association
