Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes Guide

1. Raffle Prize

T - Mark Johnston

J - Frankie Dettori

Comes back to Newmarket for the first time since her debut to head the field of seven juvenile fillies.

She finished second to Daahyeh on her first start for in-form trainer Mark Johnston, before returning an easy short-price favourite at Chester when strolling to a five-length success.

The daughter of Slade Power then narrowly prevailed in the Group Two Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot and looks a very likeable filly.

3lb penalty to carry but hopefully more to come.

2. Bredenbury

T - David Simcock

J - Jamie Spencer

Bredenbury finished a good second to Charlie Appleby's Summer Romance on debut at Yarmouth, before using that to good effect when scoring at Brighton two weeks later.

The form has been boosted with the Godolphin filly winning again and respectively projecting herself in the frame for next year's 1,000 Guineas.

More is required here for sure for Bredenbury, but should not be overruled just because she does not come here from an outing at Royal Ascot.

Nice type; Jamie Spencer takes the ride.

3. Celtic Beauty

T - Ken Condon

J - W J Lee

Irish raider - form figures of 432, and fair chances of the '1' here.

Progressive individual, who finished best of the rest behind Daahyeh in the Group Three Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot.

An outstanding effort for a 25/1 shot, who also placed in a Group Three at Naas the start before.

Definitely in with a shout once to place at the minimum.

4. Daahyeh

T - Roger Varian

J - David Egan

Stunning filly from Bated Breath, who looked every part of the 4/1 favourite she was sent off at in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Calving herself through the field like a hot knife in butter, she has also beaten chief market rival Raffle Prize this season on their respective debuts at this course in May.

Solid claims with a good promising standard, and has plenty more to offer in the colours of one of the most upcoming owners in the business.

5. Divine Spirit

T - Charlie Appleby

J - James Doyle

Daughter of Kingman, Divine Spirit won her maiden at Windsor over five furlongs back in May.

She was possibly unsuited by the slow ground at Royal Ascot in the Queen Mary when well fancied but down the field finishing fourteenth and out of contention.

Still has plenty of potential, and should go much better here now up in trip to six furlongs.

6. Final Song

T - Saeed bin Suroor

J - Ryan Moore

Final Song bolted up on her debut at Ascot in May by five lengths, and was subsequently sent off the favourite in the Queen Mary at the royal meeting.

The daughter of Dark Angel did not run badly in defeat when coming home best in the closing stages to claim third.

Interesting to see how she does on a quicker surface, and should be very much considered to take this prize.

Ryan Moore rides for Saeed bin Suroor..?

7. Lambeth Walk

T - Archie Watson

J - Oisin Murphy

All three starts have been over five furlongs, and now upped to six after two novice victories.

Finished tenth in the Queen Mary behind a few of these and was never really a threat to the leaders.

Archie Watson's two-year-old flying as usual, and no surprise to see her make the cut.
