THERE wasn’t much to get excited about over here on Sunday but thankfully the French saved us with some decent action over at Longchamp.
We’ve picked out a few snippets that may have passed you by.
One to watch
Trainer Paul Cole already has some classy horses in his stable including Duke Of Hazzard and he unveiled another smart one over in France for the same owners.
Glengowan looked pretty streetwise as she went from the front and held on gamely to land a nice win on her debut.
There’s no doubt that the Kingman filly will improve from that run and she’s one for the notebook.
St Leger contender?
Charlie Appleby could have a big William Hill St Leger contender after Moonlight Spirit demolished the field in a Group 3 contest over 1m7f.
Under a terrific front-running ride from James Doyle the three-year-old kicked for home early and came home unchallenged winning by over four lengths.
The three-year-old had previously been seen finishing fourth in the Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot, and holds an entry in the St Leger.
He was cut from 33-1 earlier in the day into 16-1.
Top-class chaser in the making
Go Another One already had some decent hurdles form in the book including when finishing fifth in a Grade 1 at Punchestown.
He won his first chasing start back in June and backed that run up in some style at Worcester as he sauntered home to come home over 30 lengths clear of the rest of his rivals.
Hard to read too much into that performance considering the time of year and the calibre of horses he was up against, but it was another promising step forward over fences and he could be a force to be reckoned with.
