  • It's Kitten's Joy's Roaring Lion In Eclipse Thriller

    Courtesy of the TDN
    By Tom Frary

    Saturday’s G1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown threw up a barnstormer as Qatar Racing’s Roaring Lion (Kitten’s Joy) edged out old rival Saxon Warrior (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) to prevail by a neck and survive a subsequent lengthy stewards’ inquiry. 

    Freshened up after a busy period which culminated in a third placing in the June 2 G1 Epsom Derby, the 7-4 favourite was held up early by Oisin Murphy as Hawkbill (Kitten’s Joy) cut out the running. Delivered alongside Saxon Warrior two out, the grey gained a slight advantage soon after and despite veering right into the runner-up late on seemed to have command at the time. Cliffs of Moher (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) was 2 1/2 lengths behind in third.

    “I thought he was always holding him,” winning trainer John Gosden said of the closely-scrutinised finish. “He’s run a great race and was wider than we wanted, but Oisin timed his run beautifully. I can’t believe how well they galloped out past the line and they’d only just arrived in the winner’s enclosure when they said ‘horses away’. This is his trip, we’ve always thought so and the problem with the Champion Stakes is it might be too soft then. He could get a mile and a half around three turns, so America could be the plan if it is soft over here then. I think he should stay in training in four, but that’s entirely up to the owners.”

He handled the track beautifully and came through, but he simply didn'tstay the mile and a half. I think we will drop back to the mile and a quarter and the [G1] Eclipse [S. at Sandown July 7] is an obvious place to go." David Redvers, racing manager for Qatar Racing, added, "I'm still all a flutter really, to see a horse travel that well over a field as good as that. We always had a doubt that this could be a step too far, certainly on this ground, and it's proven that, but we'll have a fun summer. What a machine, it's very exciting."
