Gr3 World Sports Betting Pocket Power Stakes

WINCHESTER MANSION remained unchanged on a mark of 99 following his victory in the World Sports Betting Pocket Power Stakes (Grade 3) at Kenilworth on Saturday 25 June.

The Handicappers were of the view that 4th placed BARATHEON made for the most suitable line horse which leaves him unchanged on a rating of 90. In rating the race this way the winner only achieves a rating of 92 – well below his official rating of 99, however, it was considered that this race produced a time that was a full 2,67 seconds slower than the World Sports Betting River Jetez Stakes (Listed) which took place approximately 35 minutes earlier.

The Handicappers felt that it was unlikely that WINCHESTER MANSION had performed to the same level here than when it ran 2nd to GEM KING in the WSB Legal Eagle Stakes (Grade 3) on 21 May, given that the race time was actually 2.32 seconds faster than MARIA QUEROL managed when winning the Stormsvlei Stakes (Listed) run earlier that day.

There were increases for 2nd placed THEFUTUREISBRIGHT and 3rd place TOP QUALITY who were both increased to 91 from 82 and 86 respectively and they will now be rated 1 pound higher the BARATHEON who they beat at level weights and these three would now meet on correct weight terms should they all meet in a Handicap race.

There were no other changes in this event.

Listed World Sports Betting River Jetez Stakes

YOUNG LOVE had her rating increased from 95 to 98 after showing her versatility when winning the World Sports Betting River Jetez Stakes (Listed) at Kenilworth on Saturday.

The Handicappers were of the view that runner-up MARIA QUEROL would not have run below her rating having beaten the rest of the field by at least 6,75 lengths and accordingly opted to select her as the line horse for this event.

There were increases for 3rd placed DOUBLE CHECK, who despite producing a performance figure of 84, was only given a partial increase from 71 to 74 and HIGH DUDGEON who was similarly given only a partial increase from 69 to 72 having achieved a performance figure of 82.

The Handicappers took cognizance of the fact that the River Jetez Stakes was not a Handicap and these two fillies were not weighted of their official merit ratings, but ran at unfavorable weight terms.  It was therefore considered that their performances here may not be sustainable given their overall profiles.

There were no drops for any runners in the event.

Listed WSB Sign Up Now Ladies Mile

SO FLAWLESS has had her rating raised from 96 to 100 following her win in the Listed WSB Sign Up Now Ladies Mile over 1600, at Kenilworth on Saturday.  The Handicappers were of the view that runner-up VERONICA MARS made for a suitable line horse when assessing this race, which leaves her unchanged on a mark of 97.

There were ratings adjustment to two other runners in this event, DUPLICITY dropped from 87 to 85 and CELTIC NIGHT was reduced to 84 from 86.

Listed WSB Bet With The Best Olympic Duel Stakes

GOING UP has had her rating raised from 92 to 98 following her win in the Listed WSB Bet With The Best Olympic Duel Stakes over 1200m at Kenilworth on Saturday.

The Handicappers were of the unanimous view that both MAJOR ATTRACTION and PHIL’S DANCER made for the correct line horses when assessing this event and accordingly their ratings remain unchanged on 103 and 102 respectively.

There were ratings drops for two runners in this race, WINTER MOSAIC was dropped from 99 to 94 after failing to confirm her performance in the Listed Milkwood Stakes and MARMALISA received a 3 pounds drop from 93 to 90.
