1m2½f (1m2f56y) Juddmonte International Stakes (British Champions Series) (Group 1) (Class 1) (3yo+)
Only four runners but they set a high standard between them. Paddington will take all the beating whilst Mostahdaf is the highest rated turf horse in Europe. Either could win but the value lies with NASHWA on her first start against the opposite sex. This is her trip and fast going is perfect to bring back her best form. She was excellent in the Falmouth two starts ago and let’s not forget how good last year’s Oaks form has turned out. She was outstayed on the day by Tuesday and Emily Upjohn who have gone on to win a load of Group Ones – form that’s closely matched with Arc winner Alpinista.
1pt win Nashwa @9/1, 15:35 York, WednesdayLeave a comment
