Saturday's Eyecatchers:

The first place to start following a dramatic day's racing is the bloodless success of Tiggy Wiggy in the Weatherbys Super Sprint.

She ripped her rivals apart from the drop of the flag, keeping up a relentless gallop to wibn by six lengths from the 93-rated Haxby, who was in receipt of 5lb.

Make no mistake, this was a performance that reeked of Group One potential - juveniles just don't win this race by such a distance without having to barely come off the bridle.

The Hannon camp won't be able to resist a shot at the Nunthorpe and who'd blame them? Their filly will get lumps of weight from the older brigade and could prove right up to the task.

Earlier on the Newbury card, Kosika was no less impressive in taking the one-mile fillies handicap by over three lengths from market leader Token Of Love.

She was completing a hat-trick having been a shade frustrating earlier in the year and should now go on and test the water in Listed company.

A trip to Glorious Goodwood could be in store beforehand, however.

One winner who may have slipped under the radar is Cool Baranca, who landed Cartmel's lady riders' handicap in fine style for the Sayers.

Rated in the 120s a couple of years back, the mare was winning here off 105 (2lb out of the weights) and is down to return to the Cumbrian venue on Monday.

It's also worth noting she has an entry at Musselburgh the following day and her Flat mark of 52 looks very workable.

From the evening action, Haydock's British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes is worth another viewing and you can do that right here.

Medrano won for David Brown as he beat Salateen from the Kevin Ryan stable but third home MAFTOON is one to watch out for next time.

The son of Dark Angel was denied a clear run after having to come from the back on his debut at Newmarket last month and once again he shaped with promise.

Slowly away again, he was tapped for toe when Jamie Spencer kicked for home at the head of affairs but he responded willingly to Dane O'Neill's urgings and saw the race out quite well, without ever looking like getting to the front to.

He should continue to improve as he strengthens up and a more galloping track would suit better on this evidence.

 

 

Latest Gallops Report:

Sir Michael Stoute utilised three separate gallops on a busy morning when some of his Ascot and Goodwood horses were in action.

On the Round Gallop the spotlight fell on TELESCOPE and ESTIMATE.

King George favourite Telescope continued working solo and looked in good heart as he came up the strip.

Gold Cup runner-up ESTIMATE looked well in herself as she engaged in a similar exercise ahead of the Goodwood Cup.

Next up was Gordon Stakes candidate SNOW SKY who under Prince Khalid's retained jockey James Doyle led STOMACHION.

Snow Sky looks to have done well since Royal Ascot and may develop into a St Leger candidate.

GOTHIC just had the call over TOP TUG but in behind this pair the recently-gelded MUNAASER moved best.

The last worker was RYE HOUSE who also came up solo.

The action moved onto the Trial Ground where a number of two-year-olds went through their paces.

DISEGNO was in imperious form as he stormed three lengths clear of MUKHAYYAM and ZIGAYANI.

Ryan Moore teamed-up with DARSHINI and was in the drive position to keep EBEN DUBAI (Shane Kelly) at bay.

Finally the Stoute show moved onto the Short Gallop where BRAGGING accompanied PSYCHOMETRY.

SHAMA'S SONG swung along with DYANORA in close attendance.

EXECUTRIX led ALONG AGAIN and ASYAD.
