Fintry has quality for Sandown win

Fintry can spearhead a good afternoon for the Godolphin team with victory in the Thoroughbred Breeders' Association Atalanta Stakes at Sandown.

Trained by Andre Fabre, the hint should be taken whenever the master French handler sends one of his inmates across the Channel with the stable already boasting two winners from six runners on these shores in 2014.

Fintry has already demonstrated she is more than useful on home soil, winning three of her four starts to date with her only defeat coming at the hands of subsequent Classic-placed Veda back in April.

Future Empire can make it a Pattern double for Godolphin in the European Wealth Solario Stakes.

Admittedly there is not much to go on with this New Approach colt as he is having just his second start here, but his racecourse debut was packed full of promise. Sent to Newmarket by trainer Saeed bin Suroor, Future Empire appeared to know his job well and finished off his race really strongly to win by two and a half lengths.

Kingsgate Native can make the most of a drop in class in the Betfred Beverley Bullet at the East Yorkshire venue.

The nine-year-old has been towards the top of the sprinting ranks for a number of seasons but after a flying start this term, he appears to have gone off the boil a bit in recent outings.

Robert Cowell lowers his sights here and with the Westwood ground likely to be on the quick side, Kingsgate Native has every chance of gaining his first win since Haydock's Temple Stakes last May.

In contrast, Truancy is on quite a roll as he shoots for his fourth win on the bounce in the Betfred ''Racing's Biggest Supporter'' Handicap. A total rise of 12lb is a fair amount but Truancy has responded every time he has been asked and he looked thoroughly good value for his win last time.
