Welcome to OneSelection2Win Royal Ascot Racing Mail for the Third Day of the Five Day Carnival.

ROYAL ASCOT (UK)

NORFOLK STAKES (GROUP 2) (CLASS 1) (2YO ONLY)
RACE 1 – 2.30PM

ATR COMMENTS – GLOBAL APPLAUSE turned the tables on his Newbury conqueror Mehmas when striking in the Listed National Stakes at Sandown last month and sets the standard on that latter effort. Silver Line struck at the first time of asking in a 5f novices’ contest at Nottingham last time and is considered now stepped up in grade, while Wesley Ward representative Red Lodge commands respect given his stable’s record with juveniles at this meeting. Peace Envoy, a Listed winner at Naas last month, is also worthy of consideration, though all need to demonstrate their effectiveness on the forecast slow ground. Brocklesby winner The Last Lion was beaten by Prince Of Lir on a fast surface at Beverley latest but could reverse the form and potentially play a minor role on slow ground known to suit.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – GLOBAL APPLAUSE’s all-the-way success at Sandown looks all the more impressive now that the second came out and ran a big race in the Coventry, so he ranks as the one to beat in another well-contested Norfolk Stakes. Obviously there are an abundance of potential improvers in the field, the pick of them being emphatic Nottingham maiden winner Silver Line and the Irish representative Peace Envoy.

OS2W SELECTION No: 2 GLOBAL PLEASURE – Didn’t seem to enjoy 6f at Newbury, but has looked a top early season 2-y-o either side of that, gaining his revenge on Mehmas (runner-up in Coventry) at Sandown last time. Sure to go close.
(UNPLACED – 5TH)

TERCENTENARY STAKES (FORMERLY THE HAMPTON COURT STAKES) (GROUP 3) (CLASS 1) (3YO ONLY)
RACE 2 – 3.05PM

ATR COMMENTS – Sir Michael Stoute has won this contest twice since 2009 and fields the lightly-raced ABDON, who was an impressive winner of his maiden on soft ground at Newbury before shaping well in the Newmarket Stakes behind Hawkhill who reopposes here. Conditions will suit the son of Cacique more than the Godolphin charge and this half-brother to Berkshire can follow in his footsteps and become a Royal Ascot winner. Blue De Vega warrants respect stepping up in distance and has proven himself with cut in the ground. Steel Of Madrid would be a danger if proving himself capable on a softer surface, while Royal Artillery ran an odd race on his return at Sandown when shaping as though a step up in trip would suit and has cheekpieces on to help him concentrate.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – ABDON surely has plenty more to come after just 2 starts and is taken to improve past his Newmarket conqueror Hawkbill and provide Sir Michael Stoute with a third winner in this race since 2009. Steel of Madrid is another in this line-up who is very much going the right way and is expected to be on the premises along with Aidan O’Brien’s unbeaten colt Long Island Sound.

OS2W SELECTION No: 2 ABDON – Ready winner of a Newbury maiden (heavy) last summer and highly encouraging return to action when 1¼ lengths second to Hawkbill in Newmarket listed event in April. Sure to improve again.
(UNPLACED – 8TH)

RIBBLESDALE STAKES (GROUP 2) (CLASS 1) (3YO ONLY)
RACE 3 – 3.40PM

ATR COMMENTS – Architecture is the obvious standard-setter for this contest following her fine second in the Oaks recently. However, she had a hard race that day and she could prove to be vulnerable after having less than two weeks to recover. Whereas EVEN SONG skipped Epsom to come directly here and this half-sister to Simple Verse looked in need of an extra couple of furlongs when placed in the Pretty Polly over 1m2f last time. She finished behind Chicadoro on that occasion but the daughter of Paco Boy would be a more doubtful stayer, despite her dam being from a stoutly-bred family. We Are Ninety, a stablemate of Architecture, bounced back to form with a win in a Listed race over 1m2f at Newbury last time and she is another who could improve for the extra distance today. The rest need to improve but Olala would be one to note if the ground came up extremely soft or even heavy.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – EVEN SONG looks sure to benefit from the step up to 1½m and can become the fifth Irish-trained winner of this Group 2 in the last 6 years. Oaks runner-up Architecture has a tricky draw but still looks the obvious danger if this doesn’t come too soon after Epsom. The John Gosden-trained pair Sovereign Parade and The Black Princess head a long list of progressive types among the rest of the field.

OS2W SELECTION No: 7 EVEN SONG – Maiden winner who made an encouraging return to action when third to Swiss Range in 1¼m Newmarket listed event in May. Step up to 1½m looks sure to bring about further improvement. Leading claims.
(WINNER – $3.00)

GOLD CUP IN HONOUR OF THE QUEEN’S 90TH BIRTHDAY (BRITISH CHAMPIONS SERIES) (CLASS 1) (4YO PLUS) (GROUP 1)
RACE 4 – 4.20PM

ATR COMMENTS – ORDER OF ST GEORGE romped home by 11 lengths in the Irish St. Leger and looked on good terms with himself when staying on to score over 1m6f in Listed company on his seasonal return at Leopardstown. If his stamina holds out over this longer trip, the Galileo colt could maintain his progression and record his fifth victory in a row. Pallasator accounted for Suegioo (second), Max Dynamite (third) and Burmese (fourth) at Sandown last time, though there was a muddling pace in that small field and it would come as no surprise to see Max Dynamite emerge as the main contender from that race. Willie Mullins six-year-old caught the eye with his fast-finishing effort in second in the Melbourne Cup last season and this has been his target ever since. He holds Mizzou and Clever Cookie on their Lonsdale Cup form (over 2m) last season, though the last-named will relish the recent rain that has fallen at the track and has to be considered a serious each-way betting proposition himself on the back of his victory from Curbyourenthusiasm in the Yorkshire Cup.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – ORDER OF ST GEORGE produced the best staying performance in Europe last year in the Irish St Leger, and confirmed his well-being with a comfortable success at Leopardstown this month, so he is taken to further enhance his master trainer’s already excellent record in this prestigious race. The ground has come right for Clever Cookie, while Max Dynamite and Mizzou look set to be involved, also.

OS2W SELECTION: 14 ORDER OF ST GEORGE – High-class colt who put up a truly devastating performance in the Irish St Leger last year and confirmed well-being with comfortable success at Leopardstown this month. Very much the one to beat.
(WINNER – $1.95)

BRITANNIA STAKES HERITAGE HANDICAP (CLASS 2) (3YO ONLY)
RACE 5 – 5PM

ATR COMMENTS – Garcia had Chief Whip (second), Above N Beyond (third) and Kingston Kurrajong (sixth) all behind when winning the Silver Bowl at Haydock last month and Richard Fahey’s progressive gelding is fancied to lead that trio home again, but FOLKSWOOD shades the verdict in what is a fiercely competitive renewal of the Britannia Stakes. After making a good impression in two maiden appearances last year, it was impossible not to be impressed with his easy comeback victory at Newmarket in late-April (Zodiakos third) and there looks to be a whole lot more to come from Charlie Appleby’s colt. Providing he doesn’t get stuck in the mud, he could prove up to defying a 9lb rise. Ryan Moore sides with Haydock scorer Out And About and it would come as no surprise to see him go close either.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – OUT AND ABOUT gets the vote in a typically competitive renewal of this event. He only had a pair of starts as a juvenile, but had clearly improved over the winter judged by his impressive return at Haydock last month, and is taken to follow up. As you would expect, there are any number of improvers up against him with Folkswood, Fighting Temeraire, Garcia and Oh This Is Us of particular interest.

OS2W SELECTION No: 7 FOLKSWOOD – Built on promising juvenile efforts when easily taking an 8-runner handicap at Newmarket (8f, good) 47 days ago. 9 lb higher mark to deal with now but likely more to come and is a big player.
(UNPLACED – 8TH)

KING GEORGE V STAKES (HANDICAP) (CLASS 2) (3YO ONLY)
RACE 6 – 5.35PM

ATR COMMENTS – LOVELL showed that he has improved from two to three years when a half-length second on his seasonal reappearance over 1m2f at Sandown in April (sixth, ninth and 11th have all won since) and, entitled to progress again, both in terms of fitness and for this extra quarter of a mile, he is fancied to defy an 8lb rise in the ratings. The Major General looks to be improving all the time, showed a likeable attitude when beating a couple of shorter-priced stablemates in Listed company at Leopardstown and won’t mind the rain-softened ground, so he looks an obvious danger. Guy Fawkes, Point of View, Midhmaar, Shraaoh and Primitivo add further spice to the finale.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – Sir Michael Stoute has won this 4 times since 1998 and in SHRAAOH he saddles a colt brimming with potential. Indeed, the son of Sea The Stars impressed when landing a Newcastle maiden last time and, with further improvement anticipated now pitched into a handicap, he earns the vote. There are dangers aplenty, headed by the progressive Primitivo, while Guy Fawkes and Lovell also merit respect.

0S2W SELECTION No: 3 PRIMITIVO – Landed a Windsor maiden on final 2-y-o start, and decisive winner of handicaps at Newbury (11f) and Sandown (1¼m) this year. Up 14 lb in total but appeals as the type to continue on an upward curve.
(WINNER – $7.50)

HARBOUR WATCH – Acclamation x Gorband (WOODMAN) b 2009 16.1½hh

* Unbeaten Timeform Champion 2yo

* By Champion sire and sire of sires ACCLAMATION. His highest rated 2yo son.

* Out of a grand-daughter of the legendary FALL ASPEN, dam, grand-dam or third dam of 13 Gr.1 winners including 7 Champions. Half-brother to dual Gr.1 winner EUROPA POINT

* First two-year-olds in 2016 from a first book of 147 quality mares. His first yearlings averaged £37,000 for 64 yearlings sold (to 14/10/15 inc), 5x his stud fee.

Richard Hannon, trainer – “A magnificent looking specimen with an engine to match. He was right up there with the best horses that we have had here. We look forward to having some of Harbour Watch’s progeny back here at Herridge and if they prove half as good as he did we will have no complaints.”

Ryan Moore, jockey –
“He was very precocious with the perfect attitude and a powerful change of pace.”

Richard Hughes, trainer and former Champion Jockey – “He was one of the very rare horses I rode whose nose I could see whilst he galloped, such was his determination and will to win. He had the most brilliant attitude as well as loads of ability, we sadly never got to see how good he could have been. I was desperate to buy yearlings by him and have two here now broken and ridden away. Like their sire they have both shown great temperament and have a brilliant nature. I really like them.”
