Ratings Update: No fluke about Oxted's July Cup success
Timeform's Adam Houghton rounds up the major changes to the Timeform ratings after the last week of racing.
A representative field was assembled for the July Cup at Newmarket on Saturday, bringing together the winners of the Diamond Jubilee and Commonwealth Cup, as well as the third and fourth from the former and the runner-up in the King's Stand.
In the event, however, the race fell to one who had missed Royal Ascot altogether, with Oxted (126 from 119) showing much-improved form to make the breakthrough in Group 1 company at the first attempt. Always travelling strongly just behind the leaders, he moved to the front over two furlongs out and just needed to be kept up to his work to win by a length and a quarter from Sceptical (123 from 122p), with Golden Horde (121 from 124) another neck back in third.
Oxted (Mayson) follows his father with success in the Darley July Cup 👏
The biggest victory in the career of @RogerTealRacing, and what about the jockey - still a claiming apprentice, and a Group 1 winner on his just his second ride at the highest level! @CierenFallonJr pic.twitter.com/BsDviF5hzC
