Coral Charge Guide

1. Caspian Prince

T - Michael Appleby

J - Oisin Murphy

The veteran Caspian Prince makes his third appearance of the season and incredibly his first at Sandown Park Racecourse in an 88-race career.

He opened his 2019 account with a bashing at the hands of Battaash at Haydock in the Temple Stakes, before lowering in grade for the Epsom Dash - a race he has a tremednous record in.

Having been prominent, he faced back to ninth towards the finish.

Certainly capable; should fare better in a field half the size, but possible work to do to even frighten the the leading duo in the betting.

2. Muthmir

T - William Haggas

J - Jim Crowley

Classy nine-year-old, who has been part of the top sprints in the country for many years now.

Has not won since taking the Listed Achilies Stakes at Haydock last June over subsequent Nunthorpe winner Alpha Delphini.

Good fifth in the Dash last time out, and looking to better his second-placed finish to Judicial in this race last year.


3. Garrus

T - Charles Hills

J - James Doyle

Charlie Hills has a new exciting sprinter on his hands, after Garrus transferred from Jeremy Noseda's yard following his retirement.

The horse has made two starts this season, both producing wins at Nottingham and at York.

The victory latest on the Knavesmire is arguably the strongest winning form in the field, with both the second (Shades Of Blue) winning since, and the third (Soldiers Call) boosting the form with a strong run in the Kings Stand Stakes.

Should take plenty of beating going up a level.

4. Pocket Dynamo

T - Robert Cowell

J - Andrea Atzeni

Regular at Class One level recently, but has been blown away by two classy sprinters this season.

The three-year-old was only a length-and-a-half behind Garrus in a Conditions Race at Nottingham back in April, but was nowhere near the likes of Calyx or Battaash on next two attempts.

Garrus has only gone up, whilst this Phoenix-owned thoroughbred may have taken a bit of a confidence knock.

5. Rumble Inthejungle

T - Richard Spencer

J - Frankie Dettori

Six career starts features two wins - both last year as a juvenile.

Having made a winning debut at Salisbury in May, the son of Bungle Inthejungle hit new heights two starts later when taking the Group Three Molecomb Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

However since then, it's been a bit of a no show, finishing last of nine twice including in the Commonwealth Cup latest.

Work to definitely do back down in grade.

6. Sergei Prokofiev

T - Aidan O'Brien

J - Ryan Moore

Top two-year-old last season - finishing third in the Coventry to Calyx, and winning the Group Three Cornwallis Stakes later in the season at Newmarket when dropping back to five.

That very much seems his trip, however he has been below par in two starts over that distance this season, including at Royal Ascot in the King's Stand Stakes.

Held up and never sighted, he needs to bounce back big time, but will be an obvious contender here for leading yard and connections.

7. The Cruising Lord

T - Michael Attwater

J - Jason Watson

Decent second here to Kurious in the Listed Scurry Stakes back in June, and will need to handle the rise in class.

Prior to that, he was out of contention in the Carnavon Stakes at Newbury which does look strong, but cannot be used to his advantage.

Needs to prove it on ground this quick, and that looks the main issue here.

8. Kurious

T - Henry Candy

J - Harry Bentley

Course and distance winner from last time out, Kurious certainly has a card to play in this Group Three contest.

Getting the better of The Cruising Lord just over three weeks ago, the three-year-old filly bounced back from a poor show at Newbury the time before in which she finished last of twelve.

Seems to love it here with a first on debut and another second, and should certainly make the shortlist.

9. Poetry

T - Michael Bell

J - Jamie Spencer

One start this season for the daughter of Kingman - who's progeny have been going all guns blazing of late.

This three-year-old was out of contention from an early stage when finishing ninth of ten at Maisons-laffitte in a Group Three back in May.

Definitely should benefit from the run and could be a nice each-way shout on the basis of her two-year-old form.

10. Signora Cabello

T - John Quinn

J - Jason Hart

Another for Phoenix Thoroughbreds, Signora Cabello still seems out on a recovery mission ever since her hat-trick of wins as a juvenile.

Prevailing in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot last year, she went onto win a nice Group Two in France, but it seems to have all fallen apart since.

She was ninth of twelve in the King's Stand so will benefit from the drop in grade, but not the only one here looking to bounce back.
