Ratings Update: Ascot and Haydock
Ben Fearnley highlights the major changes to the Timeform ratings after the last of week of racing, which included the Clarence House Chase at Ascot and the Peter Marsh at Haydock.
Un Deux Trois
The big Grade 1 race of the weekend was the Clarence House Chase at Ascot, which was won for the third successive season by Un de Sceaux (169), who didn’t need to be at his best – as was the case in the previous two runnings of the race – to come out on top in a gruelling race run at a strong gallop on the heavy ground. Speredek (153+) was responsible for forcing the pace and stuck on well for second after Brain Power (156+) came down heavily two out. Speredek was ultimately outclassed but ran a fine race up in grade, while Brain Power – rated as finishing a narrow second for now – fell for the second successive start, hardly ideal so far as big spring targets are concerned.
WATCH: Un De Sceaux makes history by becoming the first triple winner of the Clarence House Chase @Ascot. In the process the 10-year-old takes his career winnings above £1 million.
