Commonwealth Cup Guide


T - Martyn Meade

J - Frankie Dettori

Second in the Coventry Stakes last season, and two Group wins over six furlongs later in the season, but was poor on return over a mile in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

Better than that, especially after his victory in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh, and hopefully will be back to best now down to six again.

Blinkers go on - Frankie Dettori in cracking form.


T - Kevin Ryan

J - Kevin Stott

Two time Group Two winner over six furlongs, including upsetting Calyx at Haydock on latest appearance.

Winner in France last season as a juvenile was a very taking performance, and must be respected and taken seriously in this champion sprint for three-year-olds.

Kevin Ryan's young growing yard can do with a big boost here.


T - Simon Crisford

J - Jim Crowley

Unbeaten in four races bar one, in which he was half-a-length down on Ten Sovereigns in the Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket in September.

Skipped the Guineas to return over seven furlongs at HQ in the Listed King Charles II Stakes, and clung on well from the challenge from Azano.

Showed his stamina, but sprints seem his game as he has a cracking opportunity to take this.


T - Charles Hills

J - Dane O'Neill

Second player for owner Hamdan Al Maktoum, who has proved hot-headed in the past.

Despite this, he was very taking when running on to land the Listed Carnavon Stakes at Newbury on Lockinge day, adding to his juvenile victories at Newmarket and Doncaster.

Son of Dark Angel is certainly capable of more, and an exciting prospect going forward.


T - Clive Cox

J - Adam Kirby

Big outsider; has never repeated the effort he showed in a five furlong Newmarket maiden on debut last May.

Poor record at Class One level, so another difficult ask beckons for Clive Cox's three-year-old, who is in desperate search of another Harry Angel.

Tough assignment ahead.


T - Richard Spencer

J - James Doyle

Third behind two of these in the six furlong Middle Park at Newmarket as a juvenile, and will be needing his best to conquer this field.

Richard Spencer's young group have struggled recently, but hopefully this chestnut can get back to the form he showed at Goodwood in the Molecomb Stakes at the Glorious meeting.

Others are simply faster.


T - Aidan O'Brien

J - Ryan Moore

Back down to six furlongs is a major plus, after failing to stay the mile distance in the Guineas.

Lost unbeaten record in the process, but gave a good account of himself, and returns to the distance that led him to three victories from three starts as a juvenile.

The most high profile of those was the Group One Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket, of which he prevailed in great style.

Should be a tough nut to crack.


T - Aidan Fogarty

J - Oisin Murphy

A trainer with not a lot of exposure, Forever In Dreams won a six furlong Listed contest for fillies at Haydock last time out.

Has been sold since that race, but has a lot to find for his new connections in one of the biggest races of them all.

Not to completely abandon.


T - Ed Walker

J - Gerald Mosse

Now infamous colours of Lord Lloyd Webber, Royal Intervention will have the slight advantage of stall one - if there is one.

Finished third of four behind Hello Youmzain at Haydock last time out, and probably will not be as close this time around.

Outsider of the field, and difficult to see her upsetting the market principles.
