Richard Fahey guide to his Saturday runners

Last Updated June 24 2017, 17:04Racing

Our star columnist Richard Fahey with a guide to his Saturday runners, including the return to action of Queen Kindly at Ayr.

We’ve three runners on the final day of Royal Ascot starting with Growl in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

We’re very happy with him at home and I just hope he performs for Marwan Koukash. Rain would help him and I’ve definitely drawn a line through seven furlong races with him now, especially in good company. This is his trip and I hope he runs well.

Birchwood is working extremely well ahead of the Wokingham and on his best form he isn’t badly handicapped either. These are lottery races, you need all the luck going, but he’s in great order.

So is our other runner Eastern Impact. He ran very well when second to Mr Lupton at the Guineas Meeting and we’ve been very happy with him since. He’s another with a chance in a wide-open race.

Our first runner on Saturday is Gangland in the racinguk.com/freetrial British EBF Novice Stakes at Redcar. His attitude wasn’t great to start with at home but he’s getting better all the time and ran well to finish second to Another Batt at Ripon last time. Hopefully he’ll keep on progressing.

Flyboy has been running well without getting his head in front of late. It’s been frustrating but we’ve had no excuses and he’ll run his race again in the H Jarvis 139th Anniversary Handicap. Rain would help him.

Miss Goldsmith has been a very disappointing filly and really needs to shape up in the Watch Racinguk With Free Trial Now Claiming Stakes or she could be heading for retirement.

Our final runners are all at Ayr.

Mountain Approach is quite a nice horse, we like him and he’ll win races. I hope he’ll run with credit in the Arnold Clark British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Auction Stakes.

Atteq has been a fraction disappointing. He looks very well at the moment, we’re happy with him, but he needs to step up to win the Sunsport Handicap.

We also run Navarone in this and it was great to see him get his head in front at Beverley last time. He’s always worked well and that victory could have done him the world of good. He’ll run well again here with my only concern the ground, I wouldn’t want it to be too quick for him.

Spring Offensive is a grand, hardy horse. The Scottish Sun On Sunday Champion Handicap is a valuable pot and he looks the right type for it so we’re happy to have a go.

I’d love to get some Black Type for Mayfair Lady in the Scottish Sun/British Stallion Studs EBF Land O'Burns Fillies' Stakes. It’s easy to say a horse deserves it – but they have to go out and earn it. She has a chance of doing so here. However our other runner, Queen Kindly, will be hard to beat.

We also had her in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot but the three colts in there looked to be top class and this is an easier option.

I’m convinced she’s a sprinter, she’s been going well since the Guineas and I’m really looking forward to seeing her back in action.
