THINGS were much quieter on the home front, with just a Group 1 at Newmarket and a Group 3 at Tipperary on the flat, in addition to several listed races. That Group 1 was the Sun Chariot Stakes, and it went to Nazeef in a slightly messy race in which the runners finished quite slowly (95% finishing speed on winner).

The winner gets a 113 rating, including an upgrade for sectionals, with Half Light and Cloak Of Spirits on 111 and 113 respectively. Champers Elysees remains on 114, having been messed around slightly and never quite got on terms.
