Friday twenty eighth July, 2023 – Richard Phillips Racing


Shibuya Music ran creditably at Newbury final evening.  They went a really gradual tempo to the straight when the entire area quickened and though she was in competition with two to run, she pale within the final half furlong, most likely as a consequence of floor situations.  Nevertheless Georgia Dobie reported that she was powerful in going for a niche when difficult within the straight, regardless of being hampered.  We are going to search for one thing for her on some nicer floor – presumably over a shorter journey in August.

We took Sheila Nash out of her race at Worcester as a result of comfortable floor and can goal her for a race again on the monitor on Tuesday or contemplate Perth on Wednesday.

Earlier than going to Newbury yesterday, I used to be delighted to talk to some college students from the Using A Dream Academy at Solihull Using Membership.  The Academy is trade led and helps gifted younger riders from various communities, underneath privileged backgrounds and concrete equestrian centres all through Britain.

It was nice to fulfill them and communicate to them about the advantages of working within the racing trade and I look ahead to members of the Academy coming to work right here at Adlestrop and at different yards in Britain sooner or later.

As beforehand said, my favorite race of the yr on the flat is the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot and tomorrow’s race seems to be one to savour.  The Derby winner and runner up tackle the older era led by Hukum, Emily Upjohn, Westover and final yr’s winner Pyledriver.

With comfortable floor anticipated it needs to be an interesting contest and with floor situations as they’re, I’m hoping that Emily Upjohn will likely be seen at her greatest now again over her favoured journey with Frankie Dettori again onboard.  Good luck to all and will one of the best horse win.
