Sun Chariot Stakes - 4th October, 2014

Andre Fabre could unleash a star-studded battalion on Saturday's Sun Chariot Stakes from Newmarket and the French master trainer's challenge may be spearheaded by Fintry, who was last seen on British shores landing the Atalanta Stakes at Sandown Park.

She has racked up a trio of wins in her last three races and has oozed quality and has to be the one to beat in this Group One showpiece, but stablemate Miss France showed when landing the 1000 Guineas earlier in the season that she can sparkle at Newmarket and she could make the trip over.

Esoterique could be the third and final shot fired by the Fabre team and she was last seen finishing in the mid-division in the Prix Moulin, but previously she had landed glory in the Prix Rothschild and a repeat of that effort should see her go close.

Sir Michael Stoute's Integral was third in the aforementioned Prix Rothschild, but has shown she comes to light at Newmarket having landed the Falmouth Stakes earlier in the year and she has to be a major player if finding her best form in this top notch renewal, which is one of the highlights on a weekend that sees the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe take place on Sunday.

Richard Hannon's Sky Lantern win this race 12 months ago, but she has struggled to show the same ability this term and will need to bounce back, whilst the likes of Kiyoshi and J Wonder are just another brace of notable starlets doing battle at Flat HQ at the weekend.

Sun Chariot Stakes History

The Sun Chariot Stakes is a Group One race run on Newmarket's Rowley Mile course over one mile for fillies and mares aged three years or older.

Established in 1966 the Sun Chariot Stakes is named after the filly who managed to win the Fillies' Triple Crown of the 1000 Guineas, Oaks and St Leger in 1942. A feat that is rarely accomplished the Triple Crown showed Sun Chariot's class and this race in her honour certainly attracts top quality.

Held during Newmarket's three-day Cambridgeshire meeting the Sun Chariot Stakes has attracted runners from all over Europe with a cracking winning prize on offer.

Two people who have had excellent records in the race are the greatest jockey Lester Piggott and trainer Luca Cumani, Piggott managed to win the race six times and between 1978 and 1981 he won all four runnings of the race.

Meanwhile, Cumani first sampled success in 1984 with Free Guest who went on to retain her title a year later and produced his last winner in 1998 when Kissogram won by seven lengths.

The French especially have taken a liking to the Sun Chariot Stakes and Rod Collet's Sahpresa bagged a trio of successes in 2009, 2010 and 2011 and there is no doubt the European trainers will continue to look for glory at HQ for many years to come.
