Flying Officer wings to impressive staying success

Although he isn’t currently quoted in the ante-post list for the Group 1 Ascot Gold Cup at the royal meeting in June, don’t be surprised if the John Gosden-trained Flying Officer emerges as a potential star long distance performer of the 2014 season, writes Elliot Slater.

The four-year-old has been very lightly raced in the last two seasons and was having only the fourth race of his life when putting up a particularly eye-catching performance at Nottingham’s first fixture of the campaign on April 9, producing a long, raking run under the in-form William Buick, then staying on strongly to beat Earth Amber by half-a-length in the listed Totepool EBF Stallions Barry Hills Further Flight Stakes over a mile-and-three-quarters.

The bare form is not yet good enough to worry the likes of last year’s St Leger winner Leading Light, currently a 4/1 ante-post market leader with bet365 for the centrepiece of Royal Ascot, or The Queen’s filly and defending champion Estimate (5/1), but there are plenty of reasons for thinking that Flying Officer is going places and could well be up to the mark come the middle of June.

The son of Dynaformer is bred to be very smart over staying distances being a full-brother to both 2007 St Leger winner Lucarno, and the 2012 Great Voltigeur Stakes winner Fort Worthy, who also ran fourth in the Epsom Derby behind the top-class Camelot. Everything in his pedigree suggests he should stay really well and Flying Officer’s relaxed racing style gives him every chance of seeing out the marathon trip at Royal Ascot, should connections decide they want to tackle that challenge.

Speaking at Nottingham after the four-year-old had raced off a mark of 100 in beating Earth Amber, there was no doubting the fact that Gosden is expecting his charge to take high rank in the staying class this season. He immediately suggested that a crack at the Group 3 Henry II Stakes at Sandown Park on May 29 could be the next port of call, although here is also the option of tackling the Group 2 Yorkshire Cup at York earlier that month, a race for which the George Strawbridge-owned gelding already has an entry.

Although he has a great record in training St Leger winners, Gosden is far from a regular competitor in the feature Cup staying races, but now appears to have a credible horse to go to war with in that sphere this season. A winner of three of his four starts, Flying Officer’s only defeat came when racing over a mile as a juvenile in a first-time hood – something he wore to his Nottingham victory – but that came behind the subsequent Irish Derby winner Trading Leather when finishing seventh to Jim Bolger’s high-class horse in the Group 3 Autumn Stakes at Newmarket.

Gosden certainly has his whole string in great shape at this early stage of the season and at the time of writing had sent out a sensational five winners from his last 10 runners.

Australian dominance

Horse racing trainer Aiden O’Brien described his horse Australia as “the best we’ve ever had”, which is a very lofty statement when you consider that he has also trained L’Arc and Ascot winner Dylan Thomas and Epsom Derby and 2000 Guineas winner Camelot. So, just how big a season is Australia going to have this year?

By all accounts it is going to be a massive year. The horse is the 9/4 favourite with Paddy Power for the 2000 Guineas and 5/2 favourite with the Irish bookmaker to reign supreme in the Epsom Derby. In less than 12 months’ time this horse could already have reached legendary status.

We caught a glimpse of the horse in Curragh where the colt was part of the Ballydoyle stables training session at the Curragh post-race. As a juvenile, the horse won two of its three starts, the highlight being a six-length victory in a Leapardstown group.

Curragh gave us a glimpse of Australia and that is all we will have until the Guineas; O’Brien does not want to run the horse before Newmarket, as they do not want to race him on bad ground. The horse is “a beautiful mover” and they won’t want to risk injury on poor ground.

The hype surrounding the horse is huge and with O’Brien’s comment this hype has been increased tenfold. For the Ballydoyle trainer to speak so glowingly about Australia then you have to take note. He’s trained dominant horses before and if he believes that Australia has the talent then Australia has the talent.

Of course nothing is set in stone in horse racing and many horses often fail to live up to expectations, but the gut feeling in the racing world is that this horse is going to make it.
