Horse Racing: Day Flight pleases in Newbury prep; Newmarket gallops.
DAY FLIGHT heads to Newbury for the Listed Aston Park Stakes on Saturday and he completed his preparation in good style on the across-the-flat gallop on Racecourse Side yesterday morning.
The John Gosden-trained six-year-old is bidding to score first time out for the fourth consecutive season, having won the Gordon Richard Stakes last year, and he strode well clear of his lead under Robert Havlin on ground that had plenty of juice in it.
Notnowcato shaped well under his Group 1 penalty in the Gordon Richards Stakes when fourth to Red Rocks, and the Sir Michael Stoute-trained five-year-old gave the impression he has thrived since when powering clear of his lead ahead of a possible challenge for the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh.
Jamboretta's maiden tag should soon be erased from her cv and she travelled easily under Maxine Cowdrey as she and Cliche eased ahead of their companion, while Ladies Best shaped encouragingly in his work with Bedizen.
Rae Guest continues the preparation towards the Group 3 Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom with Bahia Breeze, who looked in good order when easing clear of her two workmates. Gay Kelleway has the Chesham Stakes in mind for Dubai Medyan, who went clear of his lead.
Ed Dunlop had been one to take advantage of the fresher ground on Racecourse Side earlier and Al Khaleej (Jamie Spencer) moved nicely alongside Madareek as his trainer ponders his entry in the London Paddy Power Gold Cup at Newbury on Saturday.
Western Adventure looks a decent prospect and the impressive Newbury maiden winner moved easily in company with Wait For The Light.
Henry Cecil had used the Al Bahathri Polytrack the day before when Phoenix Tower (Tom Queally) held the aces in his spin with Sound Of Nature.
Tranquil Tiger should soon be winning and he did all that was asked for Ted Durcan in his spin with one other.
One to note Tranquil Tiger (Henry Cecil) Looks ready to go on the prowl
