Paddington faces three rivals in the Juddmonte International as the star of the season bids to land his fifth Group 1 on the spin.

The Ballydoyle beast is stepped back up in trip for Wednesday’s 15:35 on the opening day of the Ebor Festival at York following victory over a mile in the Sussex Stakes three weeks ago.

Mostahdaf, the mount of Frankie Dettori, is officially rated 3lbs superior to Paddington although the Prince Of Wales’s winner has to concede 7lbs to his younger rival. Stablemate Nashwa is the third Group 1 scorer in the field after claiming the Falmouth earlier in the summer. The Foxes completes the field and the Andrew Balding runner boasts course-and-distance form following success in this year’s Dante.

Juddmonte International tips

Timeform: Just 4 runners for one of the great races in the British Flat calendar and a good chance for PADDINGTON to emulate the mighty Giant’s Causeway, who won this in 2000 after victory in the St James’s Palace, Eclipse and Sussex Stakes. There are plenty of similarities between the two, with Paddington thriving on his racing at the top level, and a fifth successive Group 1 looks his for the taking. Mostahdaf was impressive in the Prince of Wales and is the clear danger under Dettori.

Trainer: John & Thady Gosden Jockey: Frankie Dettori Age: 5 Weight: 9st 8lbs Draw: 3

Finally confirmed himself the top-notcher he’d long looked when impressively landing the Prince of Wales at Royal Ascot, showing a fine turn of foot. A repeat of that performance will see him bang there under Dettori.



Trainer: John & Thady Gosden Jockey: Hollie Doyle Age: 4 Weight: 9st 5lbs Draw: 4

Pretty good record in the top fillies/mares’ races she’s contested, landing a third Group 1 in the Falmouth at Newmarket in July, quickening clear impressively. Excuses when going for a second Nassau 3 weeks ago (left poorly placed having been slowly away) but has more on her plate here.



Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: Ryan Moore Age: 3 Weight: 9st 1lbs Draw: 2

Superbly campaigned and has developed into the leading 3-y-o, edging out a high-class mare in Emily Upjohn taking on his elders for the first time in the Eclipse before a gutsy front-running victory in the mud in the Sussex, his fourth successive Group 1. Still better to come and the one to beat.


The Foxes

Trainer: Andrew Balding Jockey: Oisin Murphy Age: 3 Weight: 9st 1lbs Draw: 1

Proved well suited by this trip when holding on in the Dante over C&D in May and back to form when second in the Belmont Derby last time, starting slowly and staying on well from rear to take second on line. Plenty to find here and would be a surprise winner.
