If things had evolved a bit differently, the progressive Hong Kong sprinter Cordyceps sinensis could have been competing on the fourth day of Royal Ascot.
Trainer Richard Gibson recently took a serious dip in the Group One Commonwealth Cup (1,200m) in January before he realized that the racing situation would disqualify his potential star as a gelding horse. I admitted that I was considering it.
After his recent win at Group 3 level, Cordyceps wouldn’t have looked out of place in this fierce field, and the bet was later traveled by a mix of sprinters and runners confirmed by the contest three years ago. It shows that it’s an open event characterized by a stop at the classic race over a mile and cuts it quite a bit.
My favorite perfect power is the latter camp because trainer Richard Fahey tried to increase his stamina to a mile when he finished seventh at 2,000 guineas in the new market at the last start of April, but it didn’t work out. It fits tightly to.
Prior to that, he had won 1,200m to 1,400m in five of the last six races, including the Group One Morny Award in August and the Group One Middle Park Stakes, which concludes last year’s boy season.
The Hong Kong Panther recognizes the man on board the 2006 Derby winner Christophe Soumillon. If you help him, you can expect him to arrive late.
Perfect Power brings a proven Group 1 form to the table, but his biggest rival is the first horse to step up to the elite level.
El Caballo has won the last six starts, including the previous Group 2 level, and has not started above $ 4.50 in any of these runs. He’ll be at that price again, but his abilities don’t seem to be capped and he looks like a good alternative to his favorite.
Group One Coronation Stakes (1,600m) will share the spotlight on Friday, with the undefeated boy Inspiral returning her to the biggest stage of all.
With four consecutive victories to start her career and her final victories at Group 1 level, she is undoubtedly out of the contest’s favorites.
Trained by father-son teams John and Taddy Gosden, she was a favorite of the 1,000 Guinea outpost this season, but was forced to miss the race due to interruptions in preparation.
Since then, the race has been a favorite target, but she has won 1,000 guineas in the new market and finished second in the French version a few weeks ago, including American challengers Spendarella and Cachet. Faced with potential improvers.
