London – Advertise can promote Royal Ascot form by winning the Arqana July Stakes at Newmarket on Thursday.
Martyn Meade’s exciting youngster found only Calyx a length too good in the Coventry Stakes and that horse is bound for the Group One Prix Morny at Deauville next time out.
While a crack at the top level surely awaits Advertise, Meade wants to give the son of Showcasing more experience first.
Advertise had gone to the Royal meeting on the back of a debut victory at Newbury. He showed great promise that day, but he was still a touch green at Ascot, where he was on the opposite side to the winner.
He still had 21 horses behind him and will have a learnt a lot from that. A Group Two success beckons before possibly going on to better things.
The other Group Two on the card, the Princess of Wales’s Arqana Stakes, can fall to Best Solution.
The Saeed bin Suroor-trained four-year-old is a dual Group Three winner and was fifth to Godolphin counterpart Hawkbill in the Group One Dubai Sheema Classic on his latest start.
He has not raced since then, but he has been successful following a break in the past and can collect what does not look a particularly high-quality renewal.
The step up to 2600m for the Bahrain Trophy should bring out improvement in Wells Farhh Go.
Connections of the Tim Easterby-trained colt still nurture hopes of going for the St Leger and victory will keep the dream alive for a horse who ran better than his placing suggests at Royal Ascot.
Encrypted can follow up his York victory of last month in the bet365 Handicap.
Hugo Palmer’s charge was a 25-1 shot on that occasion, but it looked no fluke in what was a hot contest.
Supernova looked a promising type when getting off the mark in a Goodwood maiden after 211 days off the track.
David Simcock’s three-year-old can keep up the good work in the Birthday Handicap at Doncaster.
War Whisper produced a good performance to register a long-overdue success at Pontefract last time out and the five-year-old can double up in the smarkets.com Handicap at Carlisle for sprint specialist Paul Midgley.
Al Kherb can make a winning racecourse debut for Roger Charlton in the Fillies’ Novice Auction Stakes at Newbury. – Press Association
