Charlie Appleby bids for more Group One glory with Hurricane Lane this afternoon in the Saint-Cloud Grand Prix (3:00am) at the French venue, live on Sky Sports Racing.

3:00 p.m. Saint-Cloud – Strong international challenge for French Group One

The British and Irish challenge represents five of the nine runners in the 12-stage contest, won last year by Aidan O’Brien’s Broome who has since won the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot last time out.

This year he sends High Definition racing with Ryan Moore in the saddle – he’s been something of an enigma in recent starts, but he was an excellent runner-up to Alenquer in the Tattersalls Gold Cup earlier this season.

Winner of the Irish Derby and the St Léger hurricane path will likely be a short-term favorite for the Godolphin team, having finished third in last year’s Arc and also winning the Paris Grand Prix.

However, it made a disappointing seasonal reappearance last time out in the Hardwicke, behind the aforementioned Broome – William Buick taking over.

Three-time German Group 1 winner mountaineer is also lining up for the Sir Mark Prescott team, having won his last five starts, although this is probably his toughest test yet.

Irish Derby 2021 second lone eagle and winner of the last outing Third Kingdom (Roger Varian) make up the rest of the strong British challenge.

The local team is led by Australis marewinner of a Group 2 at Chantilly the last time.

2:15 Saint-Cloud – The winners of the last outing compete in competitive handicap

Arguably the most competitive round of the afternoon comes at 2:15 p.m., with the Handicap Hauts de Seine featuring 16 riders, with many contenders competing against each other again.

Two of some interest would be Santa’s Zoo and Panjamanthe two riders having won in their last starts.

The former returned from a break in fine form, taking a handicap from Nantes before winning a £35,000 handicap at this track.

9:40 Belmont – Downgrade for Cheermeister

Third year winner Cheermaster might just be the answer in the Perfect Sting Stakes tonight, down from finishing seventh in best company last time out.

The highlight of the New York card will not feature last year’s winner, Truth Hurts, but To like And Thunder short, having improved for the move to the United States from the John and Thady Gosden yard.

He won an allocation contest on this site last time out for Chad Brown’s team, but he’ll have to rely on that to feature here.
