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

ROYAL ASCOT (UK)

ALBANY STAKES (FILLIES’ GROUP 3) (CLASS 1) (2YO ONLY)
RACE 1 – 2.30PM

ATR COMMENTS – CREATE A DREAM enjoyed a nice sighter for this assignment when winning here over 5f in a conditions contest in April (on good to soft) and is expected to improve for this extra furlong and play a leading role for a trainer that has a fine record with his juveniles at this meeting. Cuff heads the challenge from the Irish raiders after landing a distance sprint in Listed company at Naas in May. Others worthy of shortlist inclusion are Mark Johnston’s Newmarket winner Kilmah and Romantic View, who relished the step up to 6f when making all to land a novice sprint at Goodwood latest.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – CUFF sets a high standard with the promise of plenty more to come based on the way she forged clear in a listed race at Naas, so she has a huge chance of giving her trainer a first success in this contest. Queen Kindly has to be feared after such an emphatic debut, while Grizzel looks sure to run a big race in her bid to make it 3 from 3.

OS2W SELECTION No: 5 CUFF – Leading 2YO Filly having won both starts since stepped up to 6f, including a listed race at Naas recently. Most progressive and proven in conditions, she’s the one to beat. (UNPLACED- 5TH)

KING EDWARD VII STAKES (GROUP 2) (CLASS 1) (3YO ONLY)
RACE 2 – 3.05PM

ATR COMMENTS – A contest that includes a string of horses who competed well in Derby trials or the main event itself, with Humphrey Bogart’s impressive fifth in the Epsom showpiece leading the way in terms of form claims. He finished ahead of Carntop in a Lingfield trial, but that was the Royal-owned three-year-old’s first run of the season, and he can be expected to have come on for that. Ralph Beckett’s charge holds a solid chance having been saved for this event, but a tentative vote goes to CHOREOGRAPHER, who must be held in remarkably high regard to have been considered for the Group 2 Dante at York on just his second career start. Roger Varian’s charge looked useful when winning his maiden at Windsor on good to soft ground, and the form of that triumph was franked this week when the second won easily at the same circuit. Beacon Rock has been a steady improver for Aidan O’Brien and he is one who will be guaranteed to stay this trip, while Across The Stars is better than what he showed at Epsom and should do better here for a trainer that won this in 2006 and 2013.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – CARNTOP looks open to further improvement and could reverse Lingfield placings with the Derby fifth Humphrey Bogart and come out on top. Across The Stars chased that pair home at Lingfield and remains with potential having had excuses at Epsom.

OS2W SELECTION No: 3 CARNTOP – A 1m Newmarket maiden winner who took big step forward when a narrow second to Humphrey Bogart in the Lingfield Derby Trial on return, possibly needing the run. Cheekpieces on now and still unexposed.  (UNPLACED- 5TH)

6a02772dd02212d6cfaf99ed2b72a1de_f1941

COMMONWEALTH CUP (GROUP 1) (CLASS 1) (3YO ONLY)
RACE 3 – 3.40PM

ATR COMMENTS – It’s difficult to get away from QUIET REFLECTION, who is the top-rated performer in this line up, receives 3lb off all barring La Rioja and Illuminate, and was simply breathtaking when destroying a good field in the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock last month. The forecast softer ground will pose no problems (won on heavy at Chantilly two starts ago) and Karl Burke’s stable star will prove extremely tough to beat. Runner-up in that Haydock contest was Donjuan Triumphant and he could be the nearest pursuer again. The Dream Ahead colt might have just needed that first start since November and, whereas the selection will tolerate this ground, he should improve for it. Log Out Island will make them all go if arriving in the same mood as when impressively making all at Newbury but he hasn’t won on anything softer than good and isn’t the most straightforward, while there are also ground concerns for last season’s Windsor Castle scorer Washington Dc.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – QUIET REFLECTION is clear top on ratings following her visually impressive display at Haydock, and with that effort backed up by the clock, she can make her first go in a Group 1 a winning one. Donjuan Triumphant can chase the selection home again, with Log Out Island and La Rioja completing the shortlist.

OS2W SELECTION No: 12 QUIET REFLECTION – Won Group 3 at Chantilly in April and improved again when completing the four-timer in Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock. Showed sharp turn of foot then and with strong pace likely she’s a big player here. (WINNER $2.80)

CORONATION STAKES (BRITISH CHAMPIONS SERIES) (FILLIES’ GROUP 1) (RND) (CLASS 1) (3YO ONLY)
RACE 4 – 4.20PM

ATR COMMENTS – Conditions have come right for Irish 1000 Guineas winner JET SETTING who was sold for 1.3 millions pounds at the Goffs London Sale earlier this week after being purchased for just 12,000 guineas out of Richard Hannon’s yard last season. Adrian Keatley’s filly wants cut in the ground to be seen at her best and she has the standout piece of form in beating Minding at the Curragh last month. Conditions appear to have gone against former antepost favourite Nemoralia but she did run well on softish ground at Keeneland in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. Nathra, Qemah and Besharah are closely matched on their Deauville meeting in the French 1000 Guineas and all three will handle conditions without any issue.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – QEMAH ran creditably in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, though not quite up to expectations as she was sent off favourite, but she isn’t one to write off yet by any means, and looks a solid alternative to likely favourite Jet Setting, who is sure to be popular following her triumph over Minding in the Irish 1000 Guineas last time. Nemoralia is another to consider.

OS2W SELECTION: 12 QEMAH – Won 2 of last 4 starts, including Group 3 Prix de la Grotte at Chantilly. Beaten a head into third by Nathra in Group 1 Poule d’Essai des Pouliches last time, but isn’t one to write off by any means. (WINNER $7.50)

DUKE OF EDINBURGH STAKES (HANDICAP) (CLASS 2) (3YO PLUS)
RACE 5 – 5PM

ATR COMMENTS – Elite Army looked a Group performer in the making when taking the King George V Handicap at this meeting two years ago but has only been seen twice since thanks to injury issues. The son of Authorized proved himself still highly capable when winning over C&D last month in the Buckhounds Stakes but he still pulled extremely hard throughout the contest and that, combined with softer ground, is enough of a concern to point elsewhere. Preference goes to KINGS FETE who wasn’t seen last year but showed enough on his return at Goodwood, when not given a hard time, to suggest he retains ability and he settled fine off a steady pace, something he failed to do consistently before he was gelded. Others worthy of the shortlist include Cymro, who loves testing ground, Fabricate, who ran well on his return and will benefit from a return to a softer surface, Rare Rhythm, who remains unexposed and looked very promising when winning at Newmarket last September, and Ivan Grozny, who returns to the level for the first time since his three-year-old days.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – This could be an ideal test for FABRICATE and he can become the latest Royal winner at this meeting. Smart hurdler Ivan Grozny looks very interesting back on the level for Willie Mullins, while Elite Army and Rare Rhythm are part of a strong challenge for Godolphin.

OS2W SELECTION No: 19 FABRICATE – Won Haydock handicap over this trip last spring and caught the eye on return from 7 months off at Hamilton, headed final 1f but sticking on. This test should suit and remains with potential. (UNPLACED- 5TH)

6a02772dd02212d6cfaf99ed2b72a1de_f1941

QUEEN’S VASE (LISTED) (CLASS 1) (3YO ONLY)
RACE 6 – 5.35PM

ATR COMMENTS – All of these have to prove themselves over this trip but some have much bigger question marks regarding stamina than others, such as Beaverbrook. ORMITO filled third place in two Derby trials and on both occasions he stayed on very well, indicating that a step up in trip would suit. Furthermore, his full-brother was a useful performer over 1m4f-1m7f in Germany. Ebediyin relished the step up to 1m4f when successful at Naas last month and this extra distance could bring about some improvement from this relation to Estimate. Harbour Law has less queries regarding stamina as he was an impressive winner of a handicap, from a mark of 85, over 1m6f at Sandown on his most recent start. Improvement is clearly still required but he is unexposed and is going in the right direction. It is no surprise to see Aidan O’Brien well represented in a race he has won four times in the last ten years. Landofhopeandglory would have the strongest form of the Ballydoyle representatives but he does not look to be completely trustworthy. Cole Porter is from a very speedy family on his dams side but the same could be said about Aloft and Leading Light prior to their victories in this race. Others to make the shortlist are Daphne and Opposition.

TIMEFORM COMMENTS – EBEDIYIN’s dam was a Group 1 winner over a staying trip so there’s reason to believe this test of stamina will see him in an even better light and he can strike for the Derby winning-team of the Aga Khan, Dermot Weld and Pat Smullen. Ormito has long since left the impression he’ll be suited by this sort of trip, while Landofhopeandglory is the choice of Ryan Moore from the Aidan O’Brien trio.

0S2W SELECTION No: 4 EBEDIYIN – Made it 2 wins from 4 starts when driven out to land 1½m Naas minor event (soft) last month. Much longer trip could suit. From a smart family and anything this trainer sends over entitled to respect. (UNPLACED- 5TH)

RACE 3 – 3.40PM

OS2W SELECTION No: 12 QUIET REFLECTION – Won Group 3 at Chantilly in April and improved again when completing the four-timer in Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock. Showed sharp turn of foot then and with strong pace likely she’s a big player here. (WINNER $2.80)

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.”
