13:25 – Trueshan

Trueshan may have been feeling the after-effects of racing on quick ground at Goodwood when failing to fire in the Doncaster Cup last time, but he has won the last two runnings of this race by an aggregate of nine lengths, and can make it a treble if bouncing back as expected under ideal conditions.

PICK 5 SATURDAY WINNERS AND 100 GRAND COULD BE YOURS

14:00 – Art Power

Art Power hasn’t always been lucky with the draw at Group 1 level, finishing fourth from stall 20 in this last year when the first three were drawn low. He’s done much better this time, with a middle draw next to Go Bears Go a good spot, and he has been campaigned lightly this term with this race in mind.

14:40 – Albaflora

Albaflora has run her best races here, winning the Buckhounds Stakes in 2021 by a wide margin, and going down by a short head in this race last year. She ran poorly after a break at Longchamp last time, but could well surprise at this venue and with a recent run under her belt.

15:20 – The Revenant

The Revenant won this in 2020 and ran with credit when beaten 2½ lengths by Baaeed a year ago. He fared best of those to race up the centre when second in a Group 2 on Arc weekend, and the more rain that falls, the better his chance becomes.

16:00 – My Prospero (each-way)

Baaeed can’t be opposed for win purposes, but there is a good each-way shape to the Champion Stakes, and one who appeals is the favourite’s stablemate My Prospero, who has only raced once at this trip, and he looked well suited by the extra distance when landing the Prix Eugene Adam on his latest start. He can progress again, and a place beckons.

16:40 – Perotto (each-way)

Perotto gained his most recent win when beating 28 others over C&D in the Britannia Handicap last year, and now finds himself just 1lb higher after a losing run. He’d been running well in the face of stiff tasks prior to a rare poor run in the Cambridgeshire, and a draw in stall 1 could be a big positive with the stalls on the far side.
