Final Song sees G1 fame at the Royal Ascot meet-up


The final song, trained by Saeed Bin Suroor, will be ridden by Frankie Dettori at the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes on the last day of Royal Ascot on Saturday.

Final Song is aiming for another bold six-stage appearance as they tackle the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes on Saturday’s fifth and final day of Royal Ascot.

The fourth G1 1,000 Guineas fourth last year has proven to be a sprint revelation this year as he won the G3 Nad Al Sheba Turf Sprint on Super Saturday in Meydan and a half second in the G1 Al Quoz Sprint at the Dubai World Cup Place on the same route occupied night.

Saeed Bin Suroor’s trained filly, ridden by Frankie Dettori, faded to ninth place after slowly breaking the six Furlong G2 Duke Of York Stakes in York on her return to Europe in mid-May.

Saeed Bin Suroor said: “Final Song did some very good races in Dubai over the winter but we were disappointed with her in York.

“She looks good at the moment, the way she worked in the morning and the way she looks. She has already won on soft ground so the conditions shouldn’t be a problem and we’re looking for another good run. “

This year’s G1 2,000 Guinea’s fourth Naval Crown (William Buick) is one of the three Godolphin candidates for the G3 Jersey missions over seven stadiums.

His trainer Charlie Appleby is also responsible for Creative Force (James Doyle), who climbs up into the distance after three wins over six furlongs this season and most recently scored three lengths in a Newbury Listed race.

Storm Damage (Andrea Atzeni) made an exciting introduction to Kempton Park earlier this month and willingly entered a seven-stage rookie competition, and Night Of Thunder’s son runs in the same race for Saeed bin Suroor.

Appleby said, “Naval Crown has an excellent run in the 2,000 guineas and it will be fitting to drop back to seven stadiums. A iteration of his Newmarket performance should make him a leading contender.

“Creative Force has proven to be very consistent over six stadiums this season and is doing well this season. He won the last time in Newbury with an incision in the ground and we hope with his breeding that he will keep this distance. “

Suroor said: “Storm Damage won well at Kempton and has improved for this race. It’s a much more difficult task, but it’s the right journey and we’ll see how he does at this level. “

New Science (William Buick) offers to follow a victorious debut in the seven Furlong-Listed Chesham Stakes. The Appleby-trained teen went all out when he comfortably walked a Yarmouth girl the same distance on Friday May 28th.

Appleby said, “New Science won well at Yarmouth and mentally improved for the experience. The soil conditions will of course be very different here, but his pedigree suggests that he could get along well with it. “

Listed runner-up Raaeb (Jim Crowley) goes for Saeed bin Suroor in one of the UK’s most competitive sprint handicaps, the six stam long Wokingham.

Global Heat (Oisin Murphy) was beaten with a short head by Volcanic Sky at the G3 Nad Al Sheba Trophy in February and the Saeed bin Suroor-trained stayer attempted the marathon distance of the extended two miles and five stadiums in the Queen Alexandra Stakes.

Tamborrada is a non-runner of the Golden Gates Handicap due to the soil.

Clean Slate Eyes Unicorn Stakes Prey

Improving three-year-old stallion Clean Slate plans to continue his unbeaten start to 2021 with his G3 debut in the Unicorn Stakes over a mile on dirt in Tokyo on Sunday.

The home-grown Discreet Cat, trained by Takashi Kubota and ridden by Hironobu Tanabe, scored a pivotal win at a Nakayama maiden in January before accelerating heavily from behind in May for a mile race in Tokyo.

Meanwhile, G1 placed filly Soft Fruit is trying to pursue a recent stakes win when she stepped back into class over a mile and a half for the G3 Mermaid Stakes on Sunday in Hanshin, Japan.
