Who else is looking forward to All Weather Finals Day 2021? We sure are and so are Ladbrokes who sponsor the Filles' & Mares Championship Condition Stakes and 3 Year Old All-Weather Championships Conditions Stakes.
Check out below a preview on both of these races from Jon Lees, PR Manager at Labrokes.
2.35pm - Ladbrokes All-Weather Fillies' And Mares' Championships Conditions Stakes
Official ratings suggest Indie Angel has a significant edge in this Listed 7f prize for fillies and mares on the strength of a last time out victory in the Ladbrokes EBF Fleur De Lys Stakes at the track.
She has 4lb in hand of the next highest rated horse Fizzy Feet, who is trying the trip for the first, and 8lb or more over the rest of the field.
Indie Angel won comfortably in November, but she also had the run of the race given that the runner-up Lavender’s Blue got stuck behind a wall of horses from which she could not be extricated until it was too late.
The James Tate-trained Shimmering Dawn should appreciate the return to her own sex, having not figured in the Lady Wulfruna Stakes last time.
She has won two of her three starts in female only races this year over this trip and while Indie Angel will be the one to beat, Shimmering Dawn could be a better value alternative.
3.45pm - Ladbrokes 3 Year Old All-Weather Championships Conditions Stakes
Apollo One and Mighty Gurkha carry the strongest form into what looks to be an open renewal of the card’s feature prize for three-year-olds.
Apollo One won his first stakes race when holding on by a short head to win the Ladbrokes-sponsored Spring Cup over 7f and last season ran third in the Solario Stakes, won by Classic aspirant Etonian.
Mighty Gurkha comes here off the back of a victory in a Fast-Track qualifier at Kempton in January, having run at last year’s Breeders’ Cup.
Yazaman has four lengths to find with Apollo One on his Spring Cup run, his first outing since a break, and a return to a faster run 6f could help him bridge the gap.
Last year’s Windsor Castle runner-up took in all the big meetings last year, finishing second in the July and Richmond Stakes, without being able to add to his first time out win. Now a gelding he is not one to write off yet.
