Jarvis to double up at Newmarket
A stellar card at Newmarket tomorrow offers something for everyone, from competitive handicaps to top-class Group One action.
The totesport.com Cambridgeshire is one of the biggest betting heats of the entire season as the runners charge up the Rowley Mile, and it can go the way of the Michael Jarvis-trained Yaddree.
A three-year-old on the up, the Singspiel colt accounted for a useful sort in Cat Junior last time out on his first run for almost two months.
He displayed an appetite for a scrap, which will come in handy here, and also proved he gets the nine-furlong trip with no problems having previously raced almost exclusively over a mile.
A model of consistency, he had solid form in good handicaps over the summer and is still open to plenty of improvement with his yard in flying form.
It should be a profitable day for Jarvis as he can double up with Sri Putra in the richly-endowed Tattersalls Timeform Million.
Unbeaten in two starts, the youngster worked well at Headquarters over the weekend and is expected to have improved again from his win in the Group Three Solario Stakes at Sandown, won last year by Raven’s Pass.
Darjina is the pick in the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes for French trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre, who has a pressing engagement with a certain Zarkava at Longchamp 24 hours later.
It is incredibly difficult to crab her form, and remarkably she has finished second in five straight Group One events, the last two of which have seen her beaten only by the top-class Goldikova.
She was in front of no less than Henrythenavigator last time.
