Pat Flynn: Sarlaochra Coach

By James Stevens

Interest in Sarlaochra, the unraced two-year-old who had been the subject of a major bet on Saturday morning, has reportedly “cooled off” according to Paddy Power. It had been reduced to 6-4 from 40-1.

The Sioux Nation colt is now out at 15-2 as the firm garnered serious interest throughout the morning.

His trainer Pat Flynn has trained just two flat winners this season and hasn’t saddled a two-year-old winner in the last five years, but he’s all the rage with Kevin Manning ready to ride.

The €55,000 buy opened at 40-1 for the Irish EBF Median Sires Series Maiden (1.45) Friday with Paddy Power and Betfair, and was as short as 6-4 Saturday morning before drifting again.

Paul Binfield, spokesman for Paddy Power, said on Saturday morning: “We were 40-1 on Sarlaochra yesterday and he was well supported overnight at high prices, although it’s fair to say the support has cooled down a bit now.”

Other companies have also slashed its price, but William Hill still offers 9-1, despite its 20-1 cut on Saturday.

The Aidan O’Brien-trained pop star is this firm’s favorite for the six-stage contest. Also sired by Sioux Nation, he is an unreleased half-brother to the exciting Royal Aclaim who is set to extend his unbeaten streak to four in Group 1 Nunthorpe at York next week.

Saturday’s major market moves come a day after a huge bet on four races at Tramore. Two sets won but not Twoplustwo Equals, which was reduced from 100-1 to 4-6, and So Scottish.

Flynn sends four runners onto Saturday’s cards, but another prop Curragh runner (5.15) and the Tramore Rips Dream pair (6:30 p.m.) and Walnut Beach (8.00) did not generate significant interest.

Winner’s compound out of action at Newbury due to heat

Viewers and racing fans at Newbury will not see the horses in the winner’s enclosure as a precaution for high temperatures, which could reach up to 32C.

As with Friday’s game, the decision was made to prioritize the immediate washing and cooling of the horses after the races. Not entering the winner’s enclosure shortens the time riders are out in the sun and ITV was “well informed” of the change ahead of its coverage of five races from Newbury.

Race director Keith Ottesen explained: “It will still be hot. It was a few degrees colder than expected and we had a nice breeze yesterday, so it’s very bearable. The horses are well acclimatized and there are a lot of people here. take care of them and quickly.

“We didn’t bring any horses back into the winner’s enclosure yesterday and we will do the same today. We want to concentrate our resources in the washing areas and that really shortens the time the horses are exposed after the race. Each horse has its own team and then they go back to the stables which are much cooler.

“ITV is well informed for these races and they will do a lot of coverage and show that the horses are well cared for after the race.

The pitch at Newbury is currently firm and Ottesen added: “We put 5mm on the track after running five furlongs yesterday. [out] straight line, around bends and traction zones.

“We’ll leave it good at firm, the times weren’t particularly fast yesterday being a second or two above the norm. Given the conditions my team did a fantastic job and we have a nice pitch today. today.”

The soil is good to firm, in places good at Ripon, where the William Hill Great St Wilfrid Handicap (2.50) takes center stage. Blackrod is leading the bets, but there was some support for Emperor Spirit who is 13-2 (from 8).
