Five G1’s last week, two in Australia, the Doomben Cup and Goodwood Handicap, one in America, The Preakness Stakes, one in England, the Lockinge and one in Japan, the Yushun Himba – Japanese Oaks.
Not much change in the overall standings, Osbourne Bulls remains top with Beauty Generation and Winx joint second. Kenedna, the Doomben Cup winner added a second G1 to go with the Coolmore Legacy Stakes won last month, the others, Despatch (Goodwood Handicap), Mustashry (Lockinge), War Of Will (Preakness Stakes) and Loves Only You (Yushun Himba) were all first-time G1 winners.
Deep Impact goes top on the back of one-two in the Japanese Oaks usurping Street Cry.
Hugh Bowman didn’t score this week but remains in pole position. Joel Rosario’s second in the Preakness moves him to joint fourth.
James Cummings is still top. Chris Waller closes in on him with a second in the Doomben Cup while Sir Michael Stoute scores his first points of the year with Mustashry’s victory in the Lockinge.
No change for Godolphin who remain top after a blank weekend. Not so for Hamdan Al Maktoum, the Lockinge win puts him joint third with Coolmore.
Darley stay in pole though Northern Farm closes the gap with a first and third in the Japanses Oaks.
