Luca Cumani, who won the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes with Markofdistinction and enjoyed Irish Classic success with both Barathea
and Gossamer, said: "It's very sad that Sarah was taken at such a young age as she was a really nice, gentle person and lovely to deal with.
He's up there with some of the work Barathea
Guest had done before his third in his Guineas and he's showing me those signs," he explained.
Being by Barathea
, any rain that falls in North Yorkshire may help rather than hinder her cause and she is worth a wager.
Blazer has already landed a major gamble this season and I expect another unless he is drawn somewhere close to Leeds city centre.
Blazer finished a staying-on second in the Old Newton Cup over 1 1 /2 miles at Haydock last time while Saturday's race, the Tote Exacta Stakes, is over a slightly shorter trip.
Blazer is unlikely to go up too much in the weights and he could develop into an interesting contender for the Tote-Ebor at York next month.
George Margarson also supplemented Barathea
Guest for pounds 25,000 and the Newmarket trainer was well pleased with his colt's performance.
But on form there's no reason why Music should reverse Greenham form with Barathea
Guest while the Aidan O'Brien hope may lack class.
THE influence of Barathea

Magical Romance is a Group 1 winner, a daughter of 1994 Breeders' Cup Mile star Barathea
and a half-sister to Oaks heroine Alexandrova.
The son of Barathea
had been showing plenty of ability on the Beckhampton gallops and is held in quite high regard by connections.
LEADING Tote Ebor fancy Barathea
Blazer is set to run at Haydock Park on Saturday in the hope that a victory would guarantee his place in the line up for the York handicap on August 21.
