Hardly has the form figures to get you excited but we're reliably informed that, if this fellow can steer clear of injury, he is a very well handicapped individual who looks sure to make his way through the ranks. Where he will end up is anyones guess but, starting from a very workable mark of only 100, he will be winning soon. He is likely to be best served by good to soft or slower.

22-06-2018, Ascot, 6f , onwealth Cup (Group 1) (British Champions Series) Flat, Turf, Good to firm.
In finishing second to Eqtidaar, Sands Of Mali may have been disadvantaged the middle of the track had looked the place to be. He finished fast on the stands side to go down by only a half length. Sands Of Mali is a former Gimcrack winner who is a tough and consistent performer. He may well re-oppose the winner in the July Cup and other top sprints but, given the opportunity to race with the principals, he may well turn out to be the best of these. He is certainly a high grade sprinter and has shown himself to be adept on most surfaces, possibly slightly more effective on easier ground. He is one to follow and he looks sure to win his a Group One event soon.

As he was sent off at long odds, finishing second to Poet's Word was a disappointing effort from Cracksman. He struggled to prevail at Epsom and this performance showed emphatically that he is not a ten furlong horse on fast ground as quick as prevailed. To be effective at this trip he needs slower ground. His demeanour in the paddock did not please many seasoned judges and he may have been below par. However, back on slower ground and/or over a mile and a half he can restore his presently tarnished reputation.

Sharja Bridge ultimately finished eighth to Monarchs Glen, but he looked sure to be involved in the finish a furlong out and he gave a clear indication that, at this level, he needs less of a test of stamina. He quickened up nicely two furlongs out he was almost level with the leaders before the furlong pole but went backwards quickly thereafter. Nine furlongs would appear the extent of his stamina at this stage on fast ground and, as he handles slower ground too, he may well be worth stepping back even further when there is a decent cut in the ground.

Come On Leicester ran well in finishing fifth here to Signora Cabello. She is the first foal of Mick Channon's useful sprint filly Graphic Guest. However, she will be much better suited to either a furlong further or slower ground. Either way, she has plenty of pace but not enough for top races such as this on fast ground. She was disadvantaged by her track position from stall one but she stayed on well. She is by Kodiac and she should get six furlongs. She is expected to win more races when conditions suit.

Perfection did well to finish fifth to Agrotera having had to run alone up the far rail for almost the whole race. She can be marked up as better than her finishing position suggests. She no company at all, but she showed a terrific attitude especially as her pedigree suggests she will be much better suited to easier ground. She is a winner at seven furlongs and she has the pace to win at that trip again. Nevertheless she saw this trip out well and she will not be troubled to win at either distance.

Sergei Prokofiev did well to finish third to Calyx and put up a tremendous effort after being given a lot of work to do. He was stone last in the far side of two groups with just a furlong and a half to go but he picked up really well and only just failed to fill the runners up spot. He is certain to win more good races on both sides of the Irish Sea. He goes well on fast ground and, unlike the first two home; this may well be the limit of his stamina. He has a nice turn of foot, he is very useful and he looks sure to win more races.

This renewal of the Chesham may be considered below par. Nevertheless, Nate The Great ran with real credit to finish to finish second to Arthur Kitt going down only narrowly. She is out of a half sister to James Garfield and he is bred for this trip and further and he stayed on well to give the winner a fright close home. Nate The Great is by Nathaniel and accordingly a further step up in trip should suit him well. He is a useful sort and he looks sure to win something similar.

Undoubtedly will need further and may well benefit from a little cut in the ground. Ten furlongs is likely to be her minimum before she tackles a further step up in trip

2nd here, but was always behind the 8-ball. Slightly outpaced going into the dip he really stretched out once hitting the rising ground and gave every indication a step up to a mile will suit. May well get further, too, later on. One to keep tabs on when there is a little juice in the ground.

In finishing fifth Morning Beauty, Elasia, a half sister to 100 rated Ela's Ruby looked a stayer in the making. She was slow to start and she was pushed along to get involved. She travelled well enough but she was outpaced two furlongs out. Thereafter she stayed on well, and time may tell this was a good event. She may well have prevailed over had this race been over thirteen or fourteen furlongs. She is by Nathaniel and she will come on for introduction. She looks sure to win a maiden over this trip, or further, in due course.

In finishing 2nd, she showed a nice change of gear to get involved after travelling well in behind. she was rather isolated on the wing away from where the race developed. However, she showed more than enough to win a maiden and she looks sure to go on to something better, in due course. She should handle most types of ground.

He has made up into a useful sort after just four runs. He finished 4th here, but the does not tell the whole story. He possesses plenty of pace but he did not get the chance to show his full merit. He was last round the home turn and rather hemmed in until inside the last furlong. Once extricated he finished and he was flying at the line. Will be well suited by six furlongs on turf but may well get further in due course. A sound surface likely to suit best. He is one to keep on the right side.

Corrosive had run better than his finishing position suggested when teneth in the Britannia handicap at Royal Ascot and he once showed he will not be long in regaining the winning thread when he lost out by a head to Rip Orff who often shows his best form on the July Course. Corrosive was ridden to lead a furlong out, but in edging right under pressure he opened the door to his conqueror who took full advantage. He has won over both seven furlongs and a mile, but the longer trip probably suits him better now. On turf he is untried on ground softer than good and his US breeding suggests that soft conditions could well be a hindrance.

In finishing fifth to Wells Farhh Go, First Eleven was inconvenienced by the overzealous watering of the ground which caused the surface to be nearer to good to soft than the advertised good to firm. First Eleven needs fast ground to be seen at his best and he can leave this form behind and win a good mile and a half prize when he gets it.

The Tin Man finished fourth to Merchant Navy, but he never seemed to get to grips with the race until it was too late. He is highly consistent, he goes well on this ground and he ought to be given another chance back here at his favourite course. He was staying on best at the death and had the pace been a tad quicker, he may well have finished even closer. A stiff six furlongs suits him and he will be the one to beat when he next appears here.

Veracious finished third to Alpha Centauri, but she had two Guineas winners behind her on only her third start. This was a cracking effort from a filly hailing from a yard whose horses surpassed themselves at the meeting. There was no fluke about this excellent effort and it augurs well for her future. She is by Frankel and she will be at home at any trip up to a mile and a quarter. She has shown plenty of speed aplenty here and looks sure to win a decent event if her sights are lowered slightly. She is up to Group standard and she is one to follow.

8th here, and hasnt finished winning yet. After a disappointing reappearance, he showed much more here, staying on strongly under very tender handling, indeed, was never asked for anything like maximum effort and, on his way back down the weights again, he looks sure to strike when conditions suit. A mile is his trip and a little juice in the ground is ideal. One to keep tabs on.

Beat The Bank finished sixth to Accidental Agent, but was beaten by only two lengths on ground that would have been unsuitable for him. Although this was a slightly below par renewal, we have little doubt that on slower ground, he would almost certainly have won this judged on the way he progressed through the field and stayed strongly at the finish without being able to get on terms. He is thoroughly progressive and he is one to be with over this trip when there is more cut in the ground.

Lord Glitters finish second here to Accidental Agent, a rival he had beaten in a handicap towards the back end of last season. The going here was the deciding factor as he ran a similar race, making up a lot of late headway and could be expected to have finished even closer on softer ground. This was a slightly below par renewal, nevertheless Lord Glitters saw the mile out well and he is one to keep tabs on at a slightly lower level when conditions are in his favour.

This Sea The Stars filly has plenty of pattern performers close up in her pedigree and she was well found in the market being backed from 13/8 to 5/4 just before the off. She ran really well in defeat. She finished well clear of the third and she had quickened nicely to take up the running before being collared by a more experienced filly. She looks sure to improve when stepped up in trip. Good ground suits although she probably would not want extremes. She will need at least ten furlongs to be seen at her best.

In finishing second to Agrotera, Ortiz was very unlucky. The winner is undoubtedly handicapped. Ortiz was the only one from the stands side to get into the race and she left a very positive impression with some good fillies in behind. She enjoyed the step up in trip and on this evidence she looks sure to win a decent event over a similar trip. She is from a family that have also done well on the all weather, and all in all she will be one to keep an eye out for on both turf and artificial surfaces in the near future.

4th here, to US Navy Flag and ran an absolute stormer, never nearer than at the finish. He had previously shown good form over 7f inclduing at group level and it was an ambitious gesture by the Trainer to throw him i here but it nearly paid off. A shower or two f rain may well have seen him in the first three and theres little doubt he will need a sterner test at this trip to trouble top class opposition. However, he may well be able to win at this trip on good if he takes a step down in grade or, if persisted with at this level, a stiffer track or seven furlongs will be his optimum. Goes on most ground bar extremes and a likeable individual who may well get his day in he Sun when conditions fall right. An admirable sort and one to follow.

Advertise did very well to finish second to Calyx here staying on strongly from a disadvantaged draw, on the extreme opposite side of the track to the clear winner. The winner may be exceptional but Martyn Meade's charge looks sure to win again and his hold-up style of racing points to a step up in trip. He is progressing well and he can win a similar event over a stiff six furlongs or further in the near future.

In finishing second to Antonia De Vega in what was almost certainly a high class maiden Zagitova suggested that she is a filly of real merit. She came through strongly to be never nearer than at the finish she will stay well. She would have been seen to greater effect here had she encountered a stronger pace. However, she is certainly not short of pace as befits a half sister of Garswood. She cost 1,600,000 guineas as a yearling, she has looks to match and she is almost certainly a pattern filly in the making.

In finishing fifth to Monarchs Glen Mirage Dancer proved conclusively that he is much better served by further than a mile and a quarter. His normally meticulous trainer may have made his only error of judgement all week and although never seen with a chance, Mirage Dancer kept on strongly enough under his penalty to suggest he can win at this level and possibly even higher when stepped back up in trip. He goes well on fast ground and he equally at home on good, but he has yet to convince on anything slower.

In finishing seventh to his stable companion Soldiers Call, Rockin Roy ran well. The winner is a sharper type but Rockin Roy showed a tremendous attitude. He was outpaced by the principals, but he stayed on really well. This level of competition may well be beyond him, but he will be a force in the nurseries. He looks sure to stay six furlongs and good sort that he is, he can win plenty of races.

In finishing fifth Morning Beauty, Elasia, a half sister to 100 rated Ela's Ruby looked a stayer in the making. She was slow to start and she was pushed along to get involved. She travelled well enough but she was outpaced two furlongs out. Thereafter she stayed on well, and time may tell this was a good event. She may well have prevailed over had this race been over thirteen or fourteen furlongs. She is by Nathaniel and she will come on for introduction. She looks sure to win a maiden over this trip, or further, in due course.

This Sea The Stars filly has plenty of pattern performers close up in her pedigree and she was well found in the market being backed from 13/8 to 5/4 just before the off. She ran really well in defeat. She finished well clear of the third and she had quickened nicely to take up the running before being collared by a more experienced filly. She looks sure to improve when stepped up in trip. Good ground suits although she probably would not want extremes. She will need at least ten furlongs to be seen at her best.

Undoubtedly will need further and may well benefit from a little cut in the ground. Ten furlongs is likely to be her minimum before she tackles a further step up in trip

Beat The Bank finished sixth to Accidental Agent, but was beaten by only two lengths on ground that would have been unsuitable for him. Although this was a slightly below par renewal, we have little doubt that on slower ground, he would almost certainly have won this judged on the way he progressed through the field and stayed strongly at the finish without being able to get on terms. He is thoroughly progressive and he is one to be with over this trip when there is more cut in the ground.

5th here, to Main Edition but although winning over this trip at Yamrouth first time out was always though to need 7f to be seen at her best. She is a half sister to a decent 7f winner and in staying on well here, without the necessary pace to trouble the principals, she gave notice that, when stepped up in trip, she will be seen at her best. Only raced on quick ground so far and handles it well but will probabaly handle good an maybe a tad slower equally well.

Wells Farhh Go ran creditably by finishing sixth to Old Persian. However, in line with the expectations from his pedigree, he found this surface to quick. He was noted staying on well up the final climb and giving a clear indication he would have been suited to a sterner test at the trip. Good ground or slower is his ideal and is one to keep tabs on when getting such conditions.

Advertise did very well to finish second to Calyx here staying on strongly from a disadvantaged draw, on the extreme opposite side of the track to the clear winner. The winner may be exceptional but Martyn Meade's charge looks sure to win again and his hold-up style of racing points to a step up in trip. He is progressing well and he can win a similar event over a stiff six furlongs or further in the near future.

Looked a little awkward on his debut over hurdles at Chepstow but is going nicely again now and there seems no reason judged on recent work why he wont be able to put that effort well behind him. Capable of much better and expected to show that in the near future.

4th here but was hampered when making a move justover a furlong from home. He lost a little momentum and gave every impression he would have been involved in the finish, if not winning. He has good from on stiffish tracks such as this and appears siuted by m,ost types of sruface, last winning on soft. Looks sure to win a decent prize on a stiff track and will be most interesting back here.

4th here. to Aljazzi but gave a clear indication that this trip is too sharp for her, even on a stiff track like this. held up at the back, she was outpaced when the winner struck for home and although she stayed on well, the closest she could get was fourth, staying on reall well. This is her ground, not surprising being a daughter of a Nashwan mare but equally, she needs the step up in trip and when getting it may well be able to win something similar. Useful.
