Flat Eyecatchers For September

As the flat season continues to carry on at full speed there are still a number of horses catching eye and could be worth following until the end of the flat season.

Fantastic Moon

Jeremy Noseda's Fantastic Moon produced a superb late burst of speed to maintain his unbeaten record in the Group Three Solario Stakes and the Dalakhani colt could well be a potential 2000 Guineas contender for next year as he looks to step up in class.

He was always travelling well and when William Buick asked him to pick up and win the race he did so with aplomb as he reeled in the classy Tha'ir to win in the shadow of the post and with the Middle Park Stakes a potential at the end of the season he will be aiming to bag a Group One victory before the end of the 2012 season.

Dawn Approach

Jim Bolger's juvenile well and truly cemented his place as one of the leading two-year-olds of the season with a superb performance in the Group One National Stakes at the Curragh and the son of Derby winner New Approach is most certainly a lively contender for next year's 2000 Guineas.

Yet again he travelled with aplomb and when asked to pick up scooted clear in the closing stages to maintain his 100% record and continue on a meteroic rise up the ratings.  If Bolger can bring him through the winter with no troubles then we could well have another potential Classic superstar and he is definitely one for the notebook.

Captain Ramius

Seldom do you have an Ayr Gold Cup winner sprint clear of his rivals with such aplomb, but Captain Ramius's success in the 2012 renewal was one of real class and he could well be a sprint handicapper to keep on the right side of towards the end of the season.

Having been backed all day, he was always on the vicinity and with just under two furlongs to go he merely quickened in sensational fashion to career clear in the closing stages to beat Regal Parade by two-and-a-quarter lengths and complete a romp.

Moohaajim

Marco Botti's improving juvenile Moohaajim stormed to an eyecatching victory in the Mill Reef Stakes and immediately ventured into the 2000 Guineas ante-post betting and if he can continue on an upward curve could be a potential value candidate for next year's Classic.

Travelling well for Adam Kirby from the outset he was pulled out with a furlong-and-a-hlf to go and he duly picked up superbly and sprinted clear of the useful Master Of War to land the Group Two crown by an impressive one-and-three-quarter lengths.
