Talking Horses: Masar can defy Derby winners’ drought at Newmarket

Masar has an excellent chance to end the poor record of recent Derby winners with victory in the Princess Of Wales’s Stakes at Newmarket

He still went on to finish fifth, less than five lengths behind the winner, Defoe, and Charlie Appleby, his trainer, expects to see significant improvement on Thursday.

“He is moving well and his fitness is good. He is clear on ratings and if the Masar we are seeing at home turns up, then they all have him to beat. We feel this is a nice opportunity to get his head back in front and then hopefully afterwards we can start looking at an autumn campaign.”

Newmarket 1.50 Danny Tudhope starts the July Festival meeting as the narrow leader in the race for the Flat jockeys’ championship and while his challenge has its roots on the northern circuit, some of Newmarket’s big names have also been chipping in with winners to keep him in the hunt. Eagles By Day is his only winner so far in nine rides for Michael Bell this year, but Tudhope has an obvious chance to make it two-from-10 on the son of Sea The Stars in the Group Three Bahrain Trophy when the step up in trip should suit after their solid run into third behind Japan in a Group Two at Royal Ascot. Aidan O’Brien’s Barbados, dropping back slightly in trip after finishing a close second in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot, is the obvious danger.

Newmarket 3.00 A maximum field of 20 will go into the stalls for one of the most competitive three-year-old sprint handicaps of the season, but despite the numbers, this is a race where the market leaders tend to come to the fore, with five of the last six winners going off at a single-figure price. Aplomb and Magical Wish both arrive with strong claims and the former won with something to spare at Nottingham last time. He has yet to race on ground as fast as today’s, however, and at the prices, Moss Gill makes slightly more appeal. He too had something in hand when successful at Ripon last time out and can overcome a 6lb rise in the weights stepping back up to six furlongs.
