Ante-Post Focus
04 Aug 2015

ARAB DAWN appeared to run a bit flat dropped in trip last time three weeks after his Duke Of Edinburgh triumph at Royal Ascot but I'm expecting a happier return to the Knavesmire for Hughie Morrison's grey now he moves in the opposite direction distance-wise for the Ebor.

The four-year-old will go to York on the back of a six-week break, which looks sure to benefit him, and given the close ties on the dam's side of his pedigree to 2007 Ebor winner Purple Moon there are good reasons for thinking he can find the necessary improvement tackling 1m6f for the first time.

Take out that blip in the John Smith's Cup - and even then he didn't run that badly to be beaten under eight lengths behind Master Carpenter, albeit failing to confirm Ascot superiority over Ajman Bridge - and what we have is a sharply progressive horse who has improved again since being gelded over the winter.

It's worth remembering that Morrison said he "would love to win the Ebor" with Arab Dawn in the immediate aftermath of his royal victory and he more or less admitted that he only took in the John Smith's on route because his charge was 3lb well in compared to future handicaps.

As the trainer pointed out at the time, some horses took their Ascot exertions better than others, and it was pretty clear from the way he ran at York that Arab Dawn fell into the latter category because he was in a good position to strike three furlongs out.

However the finishing kick we have come to expect from him just wasn't there on this occasion, yet assuming he's back on his A-game after being freshened up, that turn of foot - allied to his high cruising speed - should prove a potent weapon against stayers.

Morrison has the luxury of fielding three strong contenders for the race and a check call to him yesterday confirmed that Ascot Stakes runner-up Fun Mac and Northumberland Plate third Nearly Caught are also on target.

Fun Mac, like the selection, also has a bit of improvement in him judged on this season's upgraded efforts and his Ascot form received a boost when Clondaw Warrior, who just got the better of him after a good battle, landed a 1m4f handicap at Galway last week.

That wasn't an especially strong event despite the big field and money on offer but you still have to take your hat off to the winner considering he was dropping a full mile in distance and running off a 7lb higher mark.

So while Fun Mac has a 4lb higher rating to contend with and is also taking a marked drop in trip, it would be a mistake to underestimate him, particularly as he too has demonstrated a high cruising speed over a variety of distances.

Nearly Caught is more exposed than his stablemates as he continues to pay the penalty for a series of good efforts in top handicaps. He can usually be relied on to run his race, but was a 33-1 shot when eighth in this last year off a 3lb lower mark so could probably do with a fair bit of rain to bring his stamina into play.

In a typically open-looking renewal Clondaw Warrior and fellow market leaders Ajman Bridge, Quest For More and Quick Jack are all likely to be popular if standing their ground, but none appeals quite like the selection in terms of where he's at now and what he might achieve over a new trip.
