Verdict

SAHPRESA landed her third Sun Chariot Stakes under Christophe Lemaire as she gained due compensation for a series of solid placed efforts behind the likes of Goldikova and Immortal Verse. Tracking the leaders in the early stages, she looked to be travelling much the best with three furlongs to travel and while Lemaire had to ask her to go about her business she simply had too much class for the rest of her rivals. She has won under a similar surface in the past although her action gives the impression that she will be better still with further moisture underfoot. Chachamaidee has been a credit to Sir Henry Cecil this year and she kept on well enough to chase the winner. She seems to be capable of running her race over any distance between seven and nine furlongs. Strawberrydaiquri set what was a near funereal gallop. She is not as good as she once was but this was a tactically astute ride from Martin Dwyer. I'm A Dreamer and Music Story had their own private battle for fourth and fifth. Alanza did not seem to be suited by the slow pace and she hung to the right under pressure. Together and Timepiece both raced prominently though faded as if the effects of a long season had taken their toll.
