Horse racing news Tuesday 2nd October 2018

A very quiet start to the week for me, hopefully, a bet or two Thursday and Friday, and of course there are some very big meetings to look forward to this weekend.

In the news, owner Anthony Oppenheimer speaking on Monday seemed resigned to the fact that Cracksman will not be running in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe with the weather set fair and unseasonably good ground likely at Longchamp. Enable is short priced to retain her crown and is in fine fettle according to reports – I am on at 5-1.

Laurens goes for Group One glory again at Newmarket this weekend in the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes with ‘the lads’ of Ballydoyle supplementing the Andre Fabre trained Wind Chimes to take her on.
