Recent performances have been solid and her overall profile is pretty impressive with an eight from 13 lifetime record. She has one run which was an absolute standout at Aqueduct Racetrack where she reached a speed figure of 114. Over this distance, the reproduction of that form should be good enough.
His trainer is known more for mile-to-mile and a half performers so this lad must be an absolute natural down at sprint distances, He has a decent record when fresh and he’s off the back of a two-month absence. Added to that this speedy challenger is drawn close to the fence in stall number two. Expect him to be a point-and-shoot ride for the jockey.
Has a 100% record at the Santa Anita track and, looking through all of the other contenders, he is the only one able to run the first quarter-mile in 23 seconds flat and still keep rolling over the mile distance. This will be run at a strong gallop and that should bring his natural stamina to the fore.
Put up a striking performance when winning the Sun Chariot at Newmarket. Her stamina should last out over the mile and a quarter given the two turns and the fast freewheeling nature of the track. She has a perfect draw and her potent change of gear can be used later on in the straight.
Has only had the five lifetime starts but has an impressive profile, running well in two Grade 1 races. He ran a hole in the wind when winning at Saratoga three starts back and that speed figure is the best on offer. He has to get it right at the start against some more experienced runners but he looks the most talented horse in the line-up.
Quickly made up into a top-class performer over here since winning the St James Palace at Royal Ascot. His runs after would suggest that all was not well and it was no surprise that he switched across to America. Now, with the medication Lasix added, he may be able to bounce back to form and reports are he has been working extremely well and rates an each-way punt.
Lightly-raced improver with a four-from-six profile and she is definitely nowhere near her ceiling rating at the moment. She was behind Blue Prize last time but can turn that form around given a much better draw than that rival. Midnight Bisou is the tough and consistent performer at this level, however, she lacks the room for improvement of this selection.
Rates the nap on the night. Now stepping back up in distance under fast conditions, that’s an ideal combination for this hugely talented runner, I bumped into the Judge Seamie Heffernan at Lingfield this week and he told all the viewers on Sky that this would be his pick of the team’s runners. That’s a big shout.
Ran an excellent fourth in this contest last year despite making a complete hash of the start and did incredibly well to be beaten only by a length-and-three-quarters. Much has been made of our jockey being taken off the favourite McKinzie and he can prove that all wrong by taking the big price on this spare ride. He has little to find and is a cracking 6/1 shot.
