Champion Stakes Runner-By-Runner Guide

Cracksman 5/6

Trainer: John Gosden

Jockey: Frankie Dettori

Group One Victories: 3

Superstar four-year-old who won this last year. Would be disappointed with last run when finishing second here in June. Lay-off may have helped but will need to be on song.

Crystal Ocean 11/4

Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Likeable and remarkably consistent. Not out of the first two this season. Has only lost to Enable and Poet’s Word who conquered Cracksman last time out. Guaranteed to be in frame all being well.

Roaring Lion 9/2

Trainer: John Gosden

Jockey: Oisin Murphy

Group One Victories: 3

Rapidly improving three-year-old since Derby third. Coming off a three-timer including mightily impressive victory in Juddmonte at York. Extremely dangerous if taking to ground.

Capri 7/1

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 2

Stepping up in distance after season that has consisted of only three runs. Beat Cracksman in last year’s Irish Derby. Also won 2017 St Leger but will need to rediscover that kind of form if not more.

Monarchs Glen 14/1

Trainer: John Gosden

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Four-year-old out of Frankel. Only one run this season, a victory at Listed Level. Would still need to improve markedly on form of last year to figure.

Addeybb 16/1

Trainer: William Haggas

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Had a quiet season with no run since May. Sandown run in April would offer real hope but there has obviously been something amiss.

Mirage Dancer 20/1

Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute,

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Four-year-old out of Frankel. Consistently hit the frame this year but this is a step-up in grade. Group 3 winner in August.

Verbal Dexterity 20/1

Trainer: J S Bolger

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 1

Three-year-old that finished last in the Irish version of this last month. Is proven to like the ground and won Group 1 on Heavy as two-year-old. Only had two runs this season.

Magical 25/1

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Never dangerous in Arc but performed well when winning Group 2 at Curragh in June. Needs to find more. More likely to run in Fillies & Mares Stakes.

Magic Wand 25/1

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Course and Distance winner looking to follow up on good second at Longchamp last time out. Won Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes here in taking fashion and could be over-priced. More likely to go for Fillies and Mares Stakes.

Athena 33/1

Jockey: A P O’Brien

Trainer: TBA

Group One Victories: 1

Best form came in the shape of Grade 1 turf win in the USA. That was in July and has disappointed since. Also entered in Fillies & Mares Stakes.

Rhododendron 40/1

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 3

Has won Group 1’s on three occasions. Has been extremely disappointing since last victory back in May and seems to have gone backwards.

Maverick Wave 100/1

Trainer: John Gosden

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Seven-year-old Pace-maker for Cracksman. No win since 2015 and won’t happen here either.

Subway Dancer 100/1

Trainer: Radek Koplik

Jockey: Z Koplik

Group One Victories: O

French raider without win in last fifteen runs at lower grade than this. Making up the numbers.
