One Horse, One Jockey And One Trainer To Follow This Weekend - 04/07/2019


Ornate should not be overlooked or overuled for the hat-trick bid in the opening race at Sandown on Saturday - the Coral Charge over the flying five furlongs.

Won by the likes of Battaash in the past, Ornate followed up his impressive Epsom Dash victory from the front to win a small-field Conditions contest at Beverley latest to maintain the winning feeling.

Also a winner at Newmarket on turf return, the six-year-old has been a great servant to trainer David Griffiths over the years and certainly has a few more big races in him to add to his eight career victories.

He will face the likes of old foes Caspian Prince and Muthmir, but has new kids on the block to deal with - such as Garrus and Sergei Prokofiev who are currently fighting it out for favouritism.

The Coral Charge commences the Coral-sponsored Eclipse card on Saturday at Sandown Park Racecourse.

Daniel Tudhope

Danny Tudhope has been riding winners out of his skin ever since prevailing as many as four times at Royal Ascot.

Raised in Scotland, Tudhope had only recorded two winners at the royal meeting before this year's festival got underway, but with victories on Lord Glitters, Addeybb, Move Swiftly and Space Traveller, his career has taken to new heights since.

Since his excellent week in Berkshire, he has ridden 13 winners back closer to home, including a hat-tricks at both Newcastle and Thirsk.

Stable jockey to David O'Meara's yard, he is expected to head to Haydock on Saturday for a bookful of rides, and to reunite with Summerghand in the Conditions contest who finished a good fifth in the Wokingham a fortnight ago.

Tudhope also has been booked to ride Al Muffrih in the weekend's big handicap - the bet365 Old Newton Cup Handicap.

More winners look set to be on the card.

John Gosden

Johnny G has been in scintillating form of late, both in the UK and in France.

With fourteen winners in the last fortnight from a half-century of runners, Gosden will be all set to unleash dual Arc heroine Enable back to the frame this weekend in the Coral Eclipse.

The five-year-old will make her first appearance since beating Aidan O'Brien's Magical in the Breeders Cup Turf at Churchill Downs in America, as she plots a route back to contest a record third Arc in Paris Longchamp later in the season.

She will clash with old her advisory from the Ballydoyle yard, plus a number of Group winners in Esher including the likes of Circus Maximus, Mustashry and Regal Reality.

Meanwhile some of Gosden's other stable stars have bounced back to form over the last seven days, including Mehdaayih - seventh in the Oaks, who bolted up at Saint-cloud on Sunday.

Lah Ti Dar was another to shake off a disappointing display at Epsom by running better into third, behind stablemate Coronet who claimed her first ever Group One.

Looking ahead, the Newmarket trainer has a strong player in the Lancashire Oaks at Haydock with Enbihaar, and will keep an eye on proceedings at the Merseyside venue when Ebor favourite First Eleven lines up in the Old Newton Cup.

Gosden is expected to prioritise his attendance at Sandown Park this weekend, before heading to France on Sunday to see if champion juvenile Too Darn Hot can get back to winning ways over a reduced trip.
