Our friends from across the Channel have pocketed at least one meeting winner in four of the past six years and SUESA is supposed to complete a successful raid in the Commonwealth Cup (3:40 p.m.).
After a first victory this season in the Prix Sigy, coach François Rohaut suggested she could stay fresh and go straight to Ascot.
There was no concern about the move to 6f, but just to make sure she ran the Prix Texanita again at today’s distance.
The result was the same, an imposing three-length victory, and she looks like a very tolerable 4/1 favorite.
It’s obviously not a penalty with Queen Mary winner Campanelle and Middle Park winner Supremacy but she could be a special filly and 4/1 is not bad at all.
With the World Pool in operation via tote.co.uk this week, mixing a few underdogs with Suesa in a Quinella could pay off.
A CASE OF YOU for Ado McGuiness and MEASURE OF MAGIC because Johnny Murtagh looks like both at random in price.
McGuiness’s Charge has won four of its six starts and relishes soft ground, while its only career losses have exceeded 7f and 1m.
As for Measure Of Magic, it has taken a good step forward since its encouraging youthful season with back-to-back wins this quarter and deserves to be mixed with the Exotics.
Walking on the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes (5:35 p.m.), when the ground could be really trying, and MIRAAN is the one that plays back and forth at 12/1.
Motivator’s son is a soft ground lover with a rock solid form in the book.
He had only 5/4 to defeat eventual Group 1 winner Order Of Australia at Curragh in his last start in 2020, but was only able to score fourth, as his four runs this season have exceeded 1m. or 1 m2f.
The climb to 1m4f on the proving ground should bring it back to its best level.
