June 15th  timeform write up / comments  ,,Took this in good style on last year's reappearance and went on to win King George at Goodwood (for fourth time) and Nunthorpe at York later in summer. Very good record fresh. Obvious claims.

July 30th   timeform  write up / comments ,,Not at his imperious best (had joint surgery in winter) when resuming with King's Stand Stakes fourth at Ascot. Has won on soft and still one to beat in bid for a fifth straight win in this race.


Would have been nice to know the score before it's very disappointing last run

Battassh is odds against today. Two worthy opponents. He's a good bet for me at these odds though

Battash "small fracture" was reported back in April when he resumed cantering as far as I can remember. Assuming Ascot was a rush to get him back more chance he will strip fitter today. 15/8 in a place atm seems a reasonable price to take a chance on although I am on Suesa @ 10/1 4 places.

Art Power each way for me, to have an interest.  Several of the others not well in at the weights with Battaash who is under a bit of a will he/won't he be ok cloud for me.  Starman is the best form on offer this season ( for me ) and Art represents his form here.

Goodwood absolutely made for Bat
The downhill leaves some petrol for him in last furlong
Smashed off the boards on his return so must've been showing well at home
But, they say "they never quite come back after an injury."

edit, holy cow he's nearly 2/1
I'm having a bet Grin

Tough days racing,let’s hope Battaash can bring home the bacon,even on three legs.

His Record around Goodwood is A1 and if it's anywhere near his best has plenty to spare for me.
Has liberty Beach near him in stall 6 hopefully she will tow him into it.
I have it around 11/8 in my book, 2/1 or over is value for me and have to take a chance he is in Top form.
All Aboard!

Looks like 2/1 is going to be the biggest price available. Expect the bookies will stiff the SP, so now the time to get on?

Battaash nowhere near his very best now, expect him to be well beat here. Plenty of improving youngsters that now have the class to land a blow to this once great sprinter. Shriley has to be odds on to be well beaten and retired after todays race 1.01

Some rather unnecessary derogatory remarks about the horse, only had the one race this year and finished a fine 4th in one of the best sprint races in the calendar, there really is no pleasing some people, would love to see him streak clear and then enjoy watching the doubters tuck into their humble pie, but even if he is beat there is no shame, at least they have tried and as a gelding have very little to lose by letting him strut his stuff...!

That was a horrible run.
Battaash is like a lamb nowadays before the start and runs like one
Great horse, but retirement now

very poor ride from oisin murphy - its about time the so-called experts recognised him for what he is, an average jockey in an era of average jockeys

Winner was very impressive! reminded me of moonlight cloud turn of foot.

Thought he was worse earlier on Rhoscolyn Gordon. Hopefully he's better in the next.

the winner may well have beaten dragon symbol with a clear run, but the winner came the exact line that murphy should have gone, instead of going to his left and closer to stands rail (which is usually better ground anyways and certainly no worse than centre of the track) he repeatedly went to his right, getting trapped behind horse after horse, eventually losing at least 1 length manouevring around battaash

The horse to take out of the race was the third Glass Slippers , especially given the mare's  past form on the going
By:

When: 30 Jul 21 16:13
he was never trapped behind a wall of horses.
Never had to stop riding once.The winner came from
behind anyway.Best horse by far on the day.

Agree with you Carrot. Will be interesting if the BC sprint is the aim again?
