War to Command in Curragh

THERE is decent Group One action at the Curragh tomorrow, where WAR COMMAND can continue to make hay in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes.

Ballydoyle's unbeaten colt really could not have looked any more impressive at Royal Ascot, when he dotted up in the Coventry Stakes, and has been found the perfect race in which to bolster his Classic credentials for next year.

SINAADI can bring to a close a frustrating sequence of results in the Ice Cream Festival Monday August 19th Handicap at Windsor.

Clive Brittain's filly is still a maiden after 10 tries, but she is most certainly not devoid of talent.

That claim was underscored at Yarmouth last time out when she ran a really good race in a one-mile handicap to finish third behind Pink Lips and Clear Pearl.

MILIIKA is quite a confident selection for the Coral Fillies' Handicap.

Rae Guest's four-year-old did pretty well last season, with the pick of the form arguably coming on her final start of the year.

Miliika only returned to action just over a week ago and was hardly disgraced in a tight six-furlong handicap back at Newmarket.

Leicester's card is difficult, but PORT ALFRED looks a relatively safe option in the Peter Andre Handicap.

Godolphin's three-year-old gelding tootled home in a five-furlong maiden here in July and can be considered a danger to all on his handicap bow.

Unquestionably the race of the day, and, possibly, the season is at Deauville, where a field of exceptional horses run in the Prix Jacques le Marois.

Dawn Approach, Moonlight Cloud and Intello are all outstanding specimens, but the value call could be an each-way interest in ELUSIVE KATE.

John Gosden's filly has been in superb nick and should ensure punters are given a good run for their dough at a decent price.
