Arch can swing itatNewmarket.


John Oxx's filly is a class act on her day and is taken to enhance the fine record of three-year-olds in the UAE Hydra Properties Falmouth Stakes (3.10).

Arch Swing picked up where she left off as an unbeaten juvenile when defeating stablemate Four Sins - a subsequent Group Three winner and Oaks fourth - in the 1000 Guineas Trial Stakes at Leopardstown.

She then produced a career-best performance to take second behind Finsceal Beo in the Newmarket Guineas.

Things did not work out in the Curragh equivalent and she trailed in last - clearly not her true running and Oxx revealed she returned home stiff.

The daughter of Arch showed her true colours at Royal Ascot, however, with an unlucky-in-running fourth in the Coronation Stakes.

That effort confirmed the impression a little bit of juice in the ground does not hamper this supposed fast-ground filly too severely.

Nannina is the obvious danger but Arch Swing can successfully take on her elders for the first time and bag that illusive Group One triumph.


The Storm Cat filly arrived in Berkshire heavily backed and with a tall reputation following her comfortable one-length verdict in a Group Three at Naas.

But Aidan O'Brien's juvenile probably lost the Albany Stakes as soon as the traps opened as Mick Kinane's mount flyjumped at the start, losing vital momentum and ground.

That was not the end of her woes as the full-sister to Giant's Causeway had a horrible passage through before finishing second to Nijoom Dubai.

O'Brien will have taken plenty of heart from that reverse and she is expected to recoup those Royal losses.

Haydock's abandonment has seen the HBLB Lancashire Oaks shifted to Headquarters.

Unbeaten in five bumpers, the filly also made a foot-perfect start on the level when sluicing home at Catterick.

Held in stratospheric esteem by her wise North Yorkshire handler, Turbo Linn definitely has a good race in her.

This represents a big jump in class but Swinbank knows the time of day and she is open to lots of improvement.

The lightly-raced

A good second behind a well-handicapped winner at Ayr, Howard Johnson's Montjeu gelding can defy top weight in this weaker race.
