Flying Honours

J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
OR: 108
Days: 36

The first selection on the final day of the Cambridgeshire meeting comes in the prestigious Group Two Royal Lodge Stakes that over the years has thrown out some superb winners.

2000 Guineas winner Coroebus won the event last year before landing the Classic and we think stablemate Flying Honours can go on and do a similar thing.

Making his debut in July at Newmarket over 7f, he was fourth in a decent maiden learning a lot for the experience as next time out he got off the mark in emphatic fashion at Sandown, going clear by nearly 10 lengths.

Stepped up to a mile next time out at Salisbury, also stepping up into Listed company, he made a mockery of the field again.

The form of that event has been franked in a big way with the second Stormbuster for Andrew balding since winning a good conditions stakes at Newbury by five lengths.

Very progressive type that should be tough to beat on form.

Dane O'Neill

Wanees

J: Dane O'Neill
T: Charles Hills
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
OR: 93
Days: 58

The first selection of the afternoon from Haydock is the Old Boston Handicap over a mile and we are giving a chance to Wanees who could be overpriced at 20/1.

The Charlie Hills trained Wanees has been seen six times for his trainer during his career, making his debut in August last year when sixth of 14 at Newbury in a decent Maiden, but then in September at Ascot over seven furlongs got off the mark beating a subsequent Group Three winner.

Wanees finished last season by making it back to back wins at Salisbury over seven furlongs in a novice stakes giving weight away.

He bought up the hat-trick in the Esher Cup Handicap at Sandown on seasonal debut this term when seen at a mile for the first time.

On a mark of 91 he was sent to Royal Ascot when running a good race to finish sixth of 30 in the Britannia Stakes, but last time out he ran no race at all.

Putting that run behind him his odds of 20/1 look big and off 93 could still have more in the tank.

Needs to bounce back though but the recent gelding operation could help that.

Ryan Moore

Meditate

J: Ryan Moore
T: A P O'Brien
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
OR: 112
Days: 13

The first Group One event of the afternoon is the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes over 6f and Meditate for Aidan O'Brien has done very little wrong this season.

Making her career debut at the Curragh over 5f she was a winner straight away showing bundles of pace. She then made it back to back wins at Naas when upped to 6f, revelling in the extra furlong.

Sent into the Group Three Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot on just her third start she again improved to see off the talented Mawj in fine style.

Looking to make it 4/4 she went back to the Curragh up in trip again to 7f, she went on to beat Olivia Maralda to take the Group Two Debutante Stakes.

Seen once more in her career, on soft ground for the first time in the Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes, her and the Dermot Weld trained Tahiyra, who looks a freak, went clear and she suffered the first loss of her career back in second.

There is no harm in that run and they were clear of the rest of the runners by a wide margin and now back in trip to her preferred 6f, she has a big chance to get back on track.

Count D'orsay

J: David Allan
T: Tim Easterby
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 8-13
OR: 88
Days: 13

Haydock's second and final race of the afternoon on ITV is the Lester Piggot First To Last Handicap and Count D'orsay for Tim Easterby is getting to the stage where he is going to get back to winning ways.

Having gone up in the handicap over the last few years, this term he has started to drop down the weights and now sees his mark on 88.

The lowest he has been for nearly three years, last time out he finished a superb third of 19 in the Coral Portland Handicap at the St Leger meeting.

Off the same mark on Saturday and appreciating any rain that falls, he won't be far away again.

He is also a course and distance winner which was actually the last time he won a race off 3lb higher.

Clifford Lee

Marshman

J: Clifford Lee
T: K R Burke
N/A
Age: 2
Weight: 9-2
OR: 113
Days: 36

The second Group One of the afternoon is the Middle Park Stakes over 6f for the colts and Marshman for Karl Burke holds the best form in the race.

The two year old has been seen three times in his career to date, making his debut at Ayr over 6f when winning nicely in a Maiden Stakes.

He was then sent to Thirsk and gave the performance of his career when landing a Novice Stakes by close to nine lengths.

Up in class for his latest run he ran a cracker to finish second behind the smart Noble Style at York in the Group Two Gimcrack Stakes and if improving again, which he will need to, that form could be the best on offer.

Tom Marquand

Protagonist

J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 8-13
OR: 97
Days: 35

The feature race of the entire weekend is the Cambridgeshire Handicap and with a huge field heading to post we have picked out two each way selections.

The first is Protagonist, who was a fair horse in Ireland over much further for Jessica Harrington, the five year old this term now with the master William Haggas looks a different animal.

Making his seasonal debut at Sandown over 10f he was a good fourth of 15 in a tough handicap maybe needing the run, but next time out got off the mark for the season at Doncaster beating market rival on Saturday Savvy Victory giving him 3lb.

Up 1lb for that to a mark of 90 he made it back to back wins this time at Sandown when beating another market rival in Dual Identity, again giving weight away.

Up 7lb for that to a mark of 97 it allows him to race in this event and looking highly progressive this season he could still be weighted to go close.

Interesting each way player.

Saffie Osborne

Ouzo

J: Saffie Osborne
T: Jamie Osborne
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 8-9
OR: 93
Days: 37

At a much bigger price at around the 40/1 mark is the Jamie Osbourne trained Ouzo who has solid place claims with some firms offering up to seven places.

Ouzo is a seasoned professional in these types of events and off the back of his last three runs at a mile, now down to a lower mark he could play a hand.

Running in the Whitsun Cup at Sandown on his seasonal debut he went on to finish a neck second behind Rebel Territory.

Running no race at Royal Ascot in the Buckingham Palace Stakes, he bounced back to form in the Coral Challenge at the start of July and was a superb third behind the talented Sinjaari and Checkandchallenge.

Sent to Glorious Goodwood in the Golden Mile Handicap he was a close up fourth of 18 and then last time out hit the frame again at York's Ebor meeting when fifth of 18 in the Clipper Logistics Handicap.

He is down 2lb from that run to a mark of 93 and if handling the extra furlong he looks to be a big place contender at 40/1.
