Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes (Group 1) (British Champions Series)
Sun Chariot Stakes tips for Saturday’s Group 1 race. A top class contest over a mile for fillies and mares, it has gone back to France five times in the last eight years, including a sensational hat-trick from Sahpresa. This has all the hallmarks of a phenomenal renewal, with a deep field. Read on for our free betting tips, predictions and analysis.
IN SUMMARY: NATHRA looks massively overpriced here given she ran a future Group 1 winner to three-quarters of a length at Doncaster when last seen. She had a late start to her season so a little further improvement against a field who have done plenty of running this year would be no surprise. Aljazzi got the better of her two runs back so has to be respected along with the consistent Persuasive providing the ground isn’t too quick for her. A formidable French challenge is led by Qemah but it’s Siyoushake who is most interesting at a bigger price.
1 ALJAZZI – Produced a career best at Royal Ascot when chasing home Qemah. She backed that up when a runaway winner of a Sandown Group 3 last time. That form gives her a solid each way chance over her best trip with no ground concerns.
2 DAWN OF HOPE – Ran well in an Irish Group 3 in August when only beaten a length. Her best form has come on ground with a little more dig in so connections will be hoping for a few showers. Plenty of ground to make up on Royal Ascot form with Qemah.
3 MUFFRI’HA – Took full advantage of a drop to Listed class last week over this course and distance. She was only beaten half a length in a shallow looking Group 1 in March, but she looks opposable on the majority of her form.
4 NATHRA – Three lengths behind Aljazzi two runs ago, she stepped up on that with a close second to subsequent Group 1 winner Acclaim at Doncaster. That was much improved form and if she can reproduce that here, she looks massively overpriced.
5 PERSUASIVE – Rapid improver in 2016, she has run a pair of top class races in Group 1’s this season. She was beaten just a length on her last start in the Matron Stakes, a repeat of that makes her a big player as long as the ground is no quicker than good.
6 QEMAH – Winner at Royal Ascot both in 2016 and this season, she was less than a length off Roly Poly in the Prix Rothschild. She disappointed when last seen, the second time she has run moderately at Leopardstown. All ground comes alike so she boasts a strong each way chance.
7 SIYOUSHAKE – Five pounds better off for a quarter length beating from Roly Poly in the Prix Rothschild. The return to this trip is a positive having failed to stay ten furlongs last time. Fourth in this race in 2016 when the ground was too quick, she should be in the mix again.
8 SPANGLED – Very progressive in 2016, she ran no sort of a race on her seasonal return at York. She has won fresh so that leaves her plenty to prove stepped up to a trip she has struggled with in the past.
9 USHERETTE – Winner of six of her first seven starts, she had to drop to Listed level to get back on track last time. She was only beaten a length by Qemah at Royal Ascot but despite the respect for all Andre Fabre raiders, others are preferred.
10 ALLURINGLY – Less than two lengths behind Enable in the Cheshire Oaks, their trajectories couldn’t have been more different since. The lowest rated in the contest, she has a mountain to climb.
11 ARABIAN HOPE – Twice behind Roly Poly this season, she didn’t have to be at her best to defy prohibitive odds in Turkey last time. Her best turf form has come on genuinely quick ground, she won’t get that here so is opposed.
12 ROLY POLY – Won a pair of Group 1’s from the front this season, she is another who ran below par in the Matron Stakes last time out. Decent ground is important to her so connections won’t want to see rain. Form to be competitive at her best.
13 TOMYRIS – Picked up a Listed win and a pair of Group 3 placed efforts on soft ground this season. Those conditions are important to her so unless there is significant rainfall, she looks outclassed at this level.
