Newmarket stage the feature contest this Saturday with the Group 1 Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes, a one mile race for fillies and mares. Named after the fillies Triple Crown winner of 1942 the list of winners since it’s inauguration in 1966 includes some of the greatest performers from the fairer sex including Time Charter, Indian Skimmer and Attraction. Prior to 2009 French-trained runners had a pretty poor record in the race the only victory being that of Ranimer in 1976 but Gallic raiders are enjoying something of a purple patch at the moment being responsible for five of the last eight.

The Rod Collet-trained Sahpresa became the only horse to win the race three times landing the treble in 2009,2010 and 2011 while Andre Fabre, possibly the greatest of all French handlers, won his first Sun Chariot with Esoterique in 2015. The man with a record seven Arc’s to his name is represented by Usherette on this occasion and the five-year-old must have a great chance of providing France with some compensation for their most prestigious race going to Britain last Sunday with the victory of the fabulously talented Enable.

The daughter of Shamardal has managed only the one win from five starts this season, that being in a Maison-Laffitte Listed race last month. Slightly disappointing in her previous race when only sixth behind several horses she will meet again on Saturday the mount of Mickael Barzalona is much better judged on her run at Royal Ascot when looking an unlucky loser behind Qemah and Aljazzi in the Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge Stakes.

With a clearer run Usherette can turn the tables on that pair this weekend and with Roly Poly looking to be feeling the effects of a hard campaign when finishing down the field in the Matron Stakes last time it is the horse who was a staying-on third on that occasion – Persuasive – who could prove the main danger to the selection for the Arc-winning combination of trainer John Gosden and jockey Frankie Dettori.
