2019 French Guineas Preview

2.55 Longchamp, Poule d'Essai des Poulains

Persian King comes in to this race on the back of a very impressive seasonal debut 4 weeks ago over today’s course and distance. He was expected to go for the English equivalent but finds himself in this race which looks a much easier task. He finished last season with a neck victory over Magna Grecia over a mile at Newmarket; that horse went on to win this year’s two thousand guineas at Newmarket, making his level of form look exceptional. His only blemish in 5 races was his race debut when he finished second to Anodor, who re-opposes today. Persian King has clearly shown himself to be top class and it will be asking much of Anodor to confirm these placings, but at the prices he could be worth chancing against the favourite if odds-on chances are not your thing.

2019 Dubai World Cup Meeting at Meydan

12.15 Meydan, Godolphin Mile

Last year’s winner Heavy Metal is going to find it tough to reverse the form of his last race, here on the 9th of March where he finished over 11 lengths behind today’s favourite Muntazah in to 4th place. The Turkish Champion, Good Curry also ran in that race finishing second and although he has little chance of reversing form with the favourite he could run in to a place at 50/1 eachway.

Beat The Clock To Gain Revenge on Beauty Generation

7.30 Sha Tin, The Queen’s Jubilee Cup

Beauty Generation has been imperious over a mile in Hong Kong and is rated by far the best in here as well as being rated the world’s joint top-rated miler. He’s won his last 6 races over 1 mile and today’s distance of 7 furlongs, although he may prefer a mile he has been just as dominant over this furlong less when tried. Beat The Clock got within a head of beating Beauty Generation in this race last year when he was actually favoured in the betting ahead against the eventual winner. Both have improved massively since then and while Beat The Clock looks to have a big task against the favourite, he looks to be on an upwards curve having finally registered his first group one win in the 6 furlong Centenary Sprint Cup last time out.

Pegasus World Cup Races 2019

9.51 Gulfstream Park, Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational Stakes

The Aiden O’Brien trained Magic Wand and the Japanese trained Aerolithe are interesting contenders who benefit from a 7lb concession with not being on Lasix. Both have drawn well, though this 1m1.5f may be on the sharp side for Magic Wand and the same can be said for Channel Maker, whose chance would be vastly improved with some give in the ground, with soft ground bringing him right in to contention.
