Roly Poly’s Sun Chariot Victory Edges Aidan O’Brien Closer To Group 1 Record

Roly Poly – 8-1 with Skybet and Paddy Power for Breeders’ Cup Fillies & Mares Turf

Ballydoyle trainer Aidan O’Brien looks bang on course to enter the history books this season by breaking Bobby Frankel’s record of 25 Group/Grade 1 races in a year as Roly Poly’s game victory in Saturday’s Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket puts the Irish handler on the 23 mark of winners at the highest level since the start of the year, just three short of that achieved by the US maestro.

Already the winner of two Group 1’s this season the daughter of War Front looked to be feeling the effects of a long campaign when finishing only sixth in Leopardstown’s Matron Stakes on her most recent start but, as with many of the stable’s runners, she proved her resilience by bouncing back to form for a hard-fought win over 9-4 favourite Persuasive at headquarters.

Winning jockey Ryan Moore showed just why he is regarded as the world’s leading rider as he gradually manoeuvred the low-drawn filly over towards the stands-side rail position, an advantage the combination took full advantage of as one by one they fended off several challenges to win going away by a length and a quarter at odds of 4-1.

The Newmarket stewards took a rather different view, handing Moore a two day ban for his actions which they felt had impeded Arabian Hope. French raiders – Usherette, Qemah and Siyoushake – never looked like taking the first prize of £141,775 back home, particularly Andre Fabre’s charge who once again, as at Royal Ascot, failed to obtain a clear passage after being held up.

With a strong hand guaranteed for Champions Day at Ascot in two weeks time along with several possibilities for this year’s Breeders’ Cup meeting it was no surprise to see Irish bookmaker Paddy Power wave the white flag by announcing they were paying out on O’Brien securing the three Group/Grade 1 victories needed to break Frankel’s record before the end of the season.

Despite having her eighth start of the season Roly Poly may not be finished yet with O’Brien stating: “ she might be trained for the 1m 1f fillies race [ Filly & Mare Turf ] at the Breeders’ Cup.” An 8-1 chance with Skybet and Paddy Power for that race on Saturday 4th November it would come as no surprise should this tough, durable filly become the one to claim the record for O’Brien at the venue where Bobby Frankel enjoyed much success.
