A good race for me, especially recently with (pardon the after-timing) Canford Cliffs & Power obliging at 16/1 & 6/1 resp.

With Richard Hannon and Aiden O'Brien taking 4 of the last 5 renewals, they seem an obvious angle to concentrate on. Hannon usually unleashes something at the Newbury Lockinge meeting, but doesn't seem to have one up his sleeve this year.

A lot of people seem taken by Cristoforo Colombo's recent debut, but a better performance imo was yesterday's debut by Lines Of Battle. He certainly looked the part, the time was decent and the trainer's post-race comments encouraging. He'll do for me.

2pts win Lines Of Battle @ 8/1

I'd agree it was a good performance and I think probably a better race than CC ran in. However I would suggest he is more stoutly bred and could well end up in the Chesham.

I'd want to know it was his target before investing

I'm not that familiar with Lines Of Battle's sire (War Front) but all the evidence I can find suggests he was a 6f-7f horse. As such, I'm pretty sure his progeny wouldn't qualify for the Chesham.

For those who missed what the trainer had to say:

Mystic, i'd be concerned if your horse is even going to run tbh. Simply because it look likes they have CC for the race also and given his sire actually won the race i'd be amazed if he did not line up. I know they go mob-handed in the Classics but for the Coventry ??
Report rubyisgodinthesaddle May 29, 2012 4:24 PM BST
Sintorian that is very interesting.

Just a quick point regarding the owner, he also has a share in Lines of Battle. I pretty sure Coolmore bought into him after they saw he looked pretty decent on debut this Declaration of War. Has he moved to Aidan?? any plans??

Joseph Allen i believe is a ex pat Irish Man Businessman who lives in the States and is involved in Horse Racing over there but got involved with Magnier and hence this new realsionship has started.

Does anyone remember the 2 million storm cat he had in training with Aidan O Brien called Factum who was a low grade horse in 2010.

We'll see Sintonian. APOB has bee known to run more than one in this. Judging by the post-race comments, Snday's race was a fact-finding mission to see if he was an Ascot horse, the fact he won (and beat a horse APOB appears to respect) suggests to me he is.

Aidan O'Brien Snr stated “Lines Of Battle was just ready to come racing and you'd have to be very happy with him. We liked him and he had been working nicely at home.

“I thought Leitir Mor would be hard to beat because he had a good first run but Lines Of Battle travelled well today and you'd expect him to come forward from the run. It is possible he'll run at Royal Ascot and today's race was a view to seeing if he could run there.”

No worries roobuck. What's amazing is that War Front has a RP stamina index of 11.9f! Lines Of Battle has a dosage profile of 4-6-17-0-1, so I don't think lack of speed will be an issue.

thanks for you advice and good wishes. I agree with your analysis completely.

Dawn Approach is entered for the Railway Stakes and another group race. Entries for the Coventry Stakes are still to be made.

I would back nothing in the Coventry, least of all a Jim Bolger colt, until the NRNB concession.

I do think he has serious potential though. his form is about a stone better than the OB maiden winners and if he goes to Ascot he would be a worthy favourite.

Prices quoted ante post of around 5/1 are not appealing though!

Just because Henry had one run doesn't mean anything in terms of Christopher Columbo but then again it may make no difference what so ever in reality.

But if I was going to put my money down I like to see him once more and then make a final judgement for the Coventry. It will also be interesting to see which way the market goes in the next few weeks.
Report sintonian May 31, 2012 8:27 PM BST
No it does not but at least it demonstrates it is no barrier to success in the race. Throw in the fact the stable has a great record here, and several horses just recently have won the race with just one run (Strong Suit,Canford Cliffs) then there are plenty of positives for him.

Im not betting this race yet but i'd not touch JBolgers with a barge pole.
Report rubyisgodinthesaddle May 31, 2012 8:31 PM BST
No doubt Sintonian.

I like to bet in the Coventry its a fine race to have a punt in but i am between him and Dawn Approach and as you say no point in backing Dawn Approach until the day or not at all in your case. DA seems to need a stiff finish to bring the best out of him so thats another thing. Just have to wait and see.

I heard Hannon had a good winner tonight hopefully he make the market if a few bob comes for him.
Report jamesp June 1, 2012 9:06 AM BST
Cristoforo Colombo was Aidan's first winning juvenile debutant this season and is likely to improve significantly for that first run, so I wouldn't want to be laying him for the Coventry.  At the available odds I quite like the look of Charlie Hills' colt ENGLISHMAN (12/1), who won narrowly but impressively at Newbury first time out in testing conditions.  It was a bunched finish and the race didn't look anything special at the time, but the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th and 10th all won next time (including the 5th Cay Verde, who won a Listed race in Ireland recently), and the winner is sure to be suited by better ground.  Don't know whether he's being aimed at the Coventry though, and the trainer unleashes another likely type in the shape of Sheikh Hamdan's Mayaasem, who makes his debut at Haydock this evening. 

Another one to consider is Richard Fahey's EUXTON HALL, who won a Haydock maiden without his rider having to get anything like serious with him as the front two pulled well clear.  The ground was dead/sticky that day and he may well prefer better ground.  Royal Ascot was mentioned as a possibility by the assistant trainer afterwards and this highly regarded colt looks overpriced at 25/1 if he's an intended runner, but I'd hold off from backing him until plans are clearer. 

There's no obvious value bet (like Canford Cliffs) this year, as far as I can see...

Certainly would not be running to back Dawn Approach for the Conventry after that. He won and won well in the end but looks more of a galloper that speedier type. Only when he hit the rising ground did he really stretch.

Surely they be a few more speedier types in a few weeks.

I agree that Dawn Approach made it look quite hard work - the two fillies that fought out the finish of the 4.45 travelled noticeably better through their race than Dawn Approach did in his (and the winning times were very similar), but the ground probably didn't help.  With doubts concerning the participation of Sir Prancealot (he might run in the Norfolk rather than the Coventry), there must be some value elsewhere and I still like the look of ENGLISHMAN.  Still awaiting news about his participation though...

Trainer David Barron expects Ahern to head for one of Royal Ascot's juvenile events after his winning debut at Musselburgh on Saturday.

The Dutch Art colt, who sports the colours of the influential Qatar Racing, was sharp enough to beat more experienced rivals in a conditions event.

"He's a nice horse," said the Thirsk handler.

"He'd been showing plenty at home as we think a bit about him.

"He's a big, strong sort of horse and hopefully one with a future.

"He's got a lot of speed and will have learned a bit the other day.

"Obviously it's down to (owner) Sheikh Fahad, but I would have thought he'd end up going to Ascot where the obvious races would be the Windsor Castle and the Norfolk."

Report Mystic Wind June 9, 2012 12:52 PM BST
Englishman was impressive at Newbury and the form has worked out well. However, there are too many question marks for me to entertain backing him @ current prices, such as:

Will he go on the ground? It was very soft at Newbury, even with all the recent rain it's unlikely to be as soft at Ascot.

Will he get the trip? Stayed on strongly over 5f at Newbury, but that doesn't always mean they get 6f.

Why hasn't he run since April? Quite an unusual prep'.

The last point would be my main concern.
Report jamesp June 9, 2012 6:30 PM BST
ENGLISHMAN is sure to get 6f, being by Royal Applause out of a 7f winner (by Danehill).  Faster ground should suit him fine - his dam won on all sorts of ground (including firm and heavy) and Royal Applause loved top of the ground.  Charlie Hills said after the Newbury race that he wouldn't be in any rush with him.  He also said that the horse would be better on better ground.  At this stage I wouldn't like to predict what the ground will be like at Ascot - it could well be on the slow side if this wet spell continues.

I be almost certainly against Lines of Battle after Gale Force Ten won today beating what seems to be a very reluctant horse in Leitir Moor. These early season Irish races look poor baring the Bolger colt by lawman that won by 10l at the Curragh and Dawn Approach.

CC is still a interest but gotta take a negative the fact Gale force ten won today and was pretty average looking on debut. I accept all the normal arguements about approvement etc but not for meHappy

Don't rush to back Olympic Glory for the Coventry.  Richard Hannon recently commented:
"We have a couple more important work mornings before we finalise plans for Royal Ascot, but The Taj was our third winner from four runners for Sheikh Hamdan (Al-Maktoum), and he could well be joining the toppers 'n tails team in the Coventry Stakes, though we will talk to Angus Gold during the week and then make up our minds.  Paul Hanagan was very complimentary about The Taj, who did a good bit of work with Olympic Glory on Wednesday morning, so when he won at Doncaster we were pretty hopeful about Julie Wood's Choisir colt doing the same down at Goodwood.  Julie has been invited to be a part of the Royal Procession on the Saturday of Royal Ascot, which is great, and I am sure that we'll have one or two runners for her at the meeting, though whether Olympic Glory is among them we have yet to decide.  Olympic Glory is a smashing colt with plenty of scope. He looked outstanding in the paddock down at Goodwood and did everything right in the race, but Hughesie feels that we will be better off giving Royal Ascot a miss, thereby enabling him time to mature. We will give it some thought, but maybe we should wait for Glorious Goodwood and go back for the Vintage Stakes."

Having orignally been against Dawn Approach on the basis he looked like he needs further than 6f, the going has made me think otherwise. It will be at least GS on raceday, possibly a bit holding, so will put some emphasis on stamina. All his wins have come with cut in the ground and he has had 3 runs so will be a little battled hardened.

I like Christoforo Columbo but his sire was best when it was like a road so who knows?

It does look very competitve though.gl

At the  ascot preview evening I went to Richard Hannon Jnr suggested he thought this was one of their best chances of the week. Thought Dawn approach was a little workmanlike in Ireland last time but agree does look like its going to be a good race. Plenty of interesting ones to follow later in the season.

saw that sint and will most likely carry my cash, depending on the price obviously. thought the body language of hannon jnr when discussing the horse a few days later was most revealing.

Would only be a small stake race for me, the draw could go against some, hope the King Stand sprint will shed some light on that?
The Bolger 2yo looks smart & will handle the ground, looks the 1 to beat.

What to make of the draw? No bias iyo? Could easily have been the best 3 horses home there.

Draw looks quite fair.

DA gagging for an extra furlong. Just hope JB gives him a rest, unlikely.

Really classy performance by Dawn Approach he's going to be a proper miler one day. I just hope this chap doesn't get sold. If I was sure he would stay where he is I would back him for the Guineas no doubt about it.

Well done Dawn Approach backers, he looks a real tough nut.
