Coroebus (Ire)

World Leader Baaeed Set to Light Up Goodwood

The unbeaten Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), the world's top-rated turf horse, will return to the racecourse on July 27 for the G1 Qatar Sussex S., in which he looks set to face the 2,000 Guineas and St James's Palace S winner Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}). The clash of the Shadwell and Godolphin stars will be one of the highlights of the five-day Glorious Goodwood meeting, which gets underway next Tuesday.

Appleby To Divide And Conquer With His Star Sophomores, As Adayar Captures 'Old Spark'

Last year's G1 Cazoo Derby and G1 King George VI And Queen Elizabeth QIPCO S. hero Adayar (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) is slowly rounding back into form after a start in this year's King George was mooted earlier this week, according to trainer Charlie Appleby. The Classic winner ran fourth in the G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in October and dropped to fifth in his 3-year-old finale, the G1 QIPCO Champion S. in the middle of that month. He has not graced a racecourse since. Appleby said, "Adayar is cantering...

Dubawi's Coroebus Prevails In Palace Thriller

It was tight at the death, but Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) had his head in front in a blanket finish to the G1 St James's Palace S. to add to his 2000 Guineas triumph and extend Godolphin's incredible run of success in the season's mile monuments. There were many moments when it looked as if the 10-11 favourite would fail to deliver as he first ran free in William Buick's hands off the moderate pace and was then trapped on the fence in early straight, but class acts find a...

Lighting the Torch at Royal Ascot

Charlie Appleby calls it "the Olympics" and few would challenge that claim. Royal Ascot has been too long enmeshed in the fabric of British culture to be anything other than a truly special occasion, but in the Platinum Jubilee year it has even greater allure, a higher purpose. Four of the top nine horses in the World's Best Racehorse Rankings, including the one who sits atop, will be here this week and several more that have yet to reveal themselves as members of that exclusive club. We will know them...

Royal Ascot 2022 will kick off with the cream of the crop, as Shadwell's Baaeed (GB) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) was confirmed Sunday for the meeting's opening G1 Queen Anne S.. William Haggas' unbeaten 4-year-old has six rivals to deal with as he looks to cement his place at the head of the World's Best Racehorse Rankings having got there with an emphatic return win from the re-opposing Real World (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) in the G1 Lockinge S. at Newbury May 14. It hasn't escaped anyone's attentions that he...

Classic winner Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) is in good form according to trainer Charlie Appleby a few days in advance of a start in the G1 St James's Palace S. at Royal Ascot on Tuesday. The bay son of First Victory (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire) led home a Godolpin/Charlie Appleby one-two in the G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas with Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) second at the end of April. His final workout will take place on Saturday. "Royal Ascot is the Olympics of the equestrian field in Europe and I'm...

Guineas Win Propels Coroebus Up The Longines WBRR

After winning the G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas at the end of April, Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) moved up to a ranking of 121 in the Longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings. The new mark puts him even with fellow improvers Jackie's Warrior (Maclean's Music), who won the GI Churchill Downs S. on Kentucky Derby Day and G1 Tenno Sho (Spring) scorer Titleholder (Jpn) (Duramente {Jpn}). They join Golden Pal (Uncle Mo) and Country Grammer (Tonalist) at that rating, which is a five-way tie for fifth in the standings. Leading the list...

Guineas Glory For Coroebus

A Godolphin-Charlie Appleby one-two in Saturday's G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas at Newmarket seemed highly plausible, but as the dust settled on the sun-blessed Rowley Mile it was Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) and not Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) who held the Moulton Paddocks bragging rights. Despite arriving here in his stablemate's shadow, the G3 Autumn S. winner received due respect and support at 5-1 attempting to navigate from the one draw on the far side. As the 5-4 favourite charged down the other wing with William Buick animated, Coroebus...

The Return Of The Native

Since Charlie Appleby took up the mantle at Moulton Paddocks in 2013, Godolphin's fortunes on British soil have been back on the rise and there is no greater exponent of that trend than Saturday's G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas leading light Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}). The way Appleby's runners have been sweeping up the Spring's black-type contests so far this term is reminiscent of the days when Henry Cecil's Warren Place was at its height and provides further evidence that Ballydoyle has a heavyweight of mutual prowess to trade blows...

Native Trail To Face 14 In The Guineas

Charlie Appleby will have to be sharp-eyed on Saturday after the draw for Newmarket's G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas saw his high-class pair Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) and Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) on opposite sides of the track. William Buick's mount, the G1 Vincent O'Brien National S. and G1 Dewhurst S.-winning unbeaten champion juvenile Native Trail, was handed 15 of 15 while his G3 Autumn S.-winning stablemate is in one. Their handler was unconcerned about the draw on Thursday. "With the stalls in the centre of the track, being drawn 15...

Appleby Outlines Plans For His Stable Stars

Last year's G1 Cazoo Derby and G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. hero Adayar (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) will return in the June 3 G1 Coronation Cup S., Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby revealed on Saturday. Fourth in the G1 Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, one place behind stablemate Hurricane Lane (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) in October, the strapping bay ended his season with a fifth after racing too freely in the G1 QIPCO Champion S. on Oct. 16. "Going forward the plan would be to start him off in...

Godolphin's Clean Sweep On The Cards As Coroebus Scores

With Goldspur (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) having provided the warm-up act in the G3 Godolphin Flying Start Zetland S., the impressive Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) duly extended the domination of Godolphin's Charlie Appleby stable on Future Champions Day in the G3 Emirates Autumn S. Caught close home having shown above-average acceleration in the G2 Royal Lodge S. over this course and mile trip last time Sept. 25, the imposing homebred was in last from the break this time with the anchor down. Despite racing away from the pace throughout, the 4-5...
