William Buick

Native Trail

J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 122
Days: 17

The leading chance. Native Trail was top class last year, earning the title of 2021 Champion 2yo. He showed he still has that class, when taking the Craven Stakes over C&D in good style.

Buick rides, which is an obvious plus, and the horse himself looks versatile with regards tactics, and he has a potent final furlong in him. Bulletproof.

Jason Watson

Berkshire Shadow

J: Jason Watson
T: Andrew Balding
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 110
Days: 203

Berkshire Shadow, an easy winner of the Coventry at Royal Ascot last year, more or less failed to fire in his next three runs. He was undone by soft ground at Goodwood, when beaten by Angel Bleu.

Shortly afterwards, he was dropped to 6f at York, and it all happened a bit quick for him. He did run a nice enough race in the Dewhurst, finishing fourth but never threatening. Will need to improve but clearly quite useful.

Frankie Dettori

Point Lonsdale

J: Frankie Dettori
T: A P O'Brien
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 114
Days: 230

A good horse, Point Lonsdale racked up four on the bounce last season, including a win at Royal Ascot in the Chesham.

He could not make it five from five though, as he was comprehensively dispatched by the Champion 2yo Native Trail, in the G1 National Stakes at the Curragh.

Point Lonsdale should enjoy this trip, as he looks an ideal candidate for 8-12f group races this year. Evidently has an abundance of class, but the lack of a recent run may be a negative. Work to do to turn around the form with Native Trail.

Sean Levey

Tacarib Bay

J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 103
Days: 18

Ran to a very good level last year. On his latest start he was second to the potentially very useful New Science in the European Free Handicap (Listed).

He was third on his final start last year to Light Infantry, though he had excuses and was short of room. Tacarib Bay is evidently a good horse, and he’s had a few excuses. He showed his well-being last time out, and he’s not without a place chance.

Pat Dobbs

Lusail

J: Pat Dobbs
T: Richard Hannon
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 113
Days: 14

A busy 2yo, Lusail ran six times winning four. He is a dual G2 winner and ran well on several occasions.

He did look a very forward type at 2, so he had to prove he’s trained on, which he did at Newbury in the Greenham, finishing only a length and a half behind Perfect Power. Must have a chance through that line of form – but he’ll likely find one or two too good.

Dubawi Legend

J: Tom Marquand
T: Hugo Palmer
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 115
Days: 175

Looked to be quite smart last year and is held in high regard. He won on debut at Doncaster, then ran solid enough races in defeat the next twice (2nd to Native Trail in the Dewhurst).

He was then sent to Del Mar for the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf, but faded tamely. He lacks a recent run, but his proximity to last years Champion 2YO must be a positive.

Each way chance.

J: Jason Hart

Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 113
Days: 189

Ran to a very good level last year, and he took the scalp on Coroebus in the Royal Lodge over C&D towards the end of his season.

He did run disappointingly in the Futurity Trophy, though he was eased heavily when beaten. Perhaps that performance was just poor because he had a tough season? Needs to bounce back – but will appreciate a good pace and this track. Not discounted.

Perfect Power

J: Christophe Soumillon
T: Richard Fahey
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 115
Days: 14

A top quality 2yo last year. Perfect Power proved he retains all of that ability, last time out beating Lusail in the Greenham. He was very good at 6F last year, and the Greenham was over 7F, but it didn’t exactly look like he was a strong stayer at the 7F.

He will need a solid pace to aim at here if he’s to get this stiff mile. His trainer has also voiced his concerns with regards his temperament – but he’s a class horse and if he stays, he’s a good chance.

Outsider.

The Wizard Of Eye has ran seven times, but only won the once. He’s been mixing it in good company, though he’s never really threatened. He looks up against it here, and it would be a massive shock to see him win.

Ryan Moore

Luxembourg

J: Ryan Moore
T: A P O'Brien
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 115
Days: 189

The leading chance for the stable here, Luxembourg signed off his 2yo campaign in the G1 Futurity taking his unbeaten record to three in the process. He’s by Camelot, so, the distance has to be a bit of a concern assuming he’s matured physically from 2-3.

Camelot’s tend to appreciate a bit more than a mile, typically in their 3yo season. However, he’s trained by a serial winner of the race so they know what’s needed.

One of the class acts, should run a massive race, even with a few question marks.

J: Jamie Spencer

N/A

Unbeaten in two starts, and he’s left a good impression on both occasions. On debut, he won by six and a half lengths to High Velocity in second (Rated 88), he did this easily and overcame greenness in the process.

hen, upped in grade in the G3 Horris Hill, he won from Cresta and Tacarib Bay despite hanging to his right. He clearly has ability, whether he can mix it with these is another question.

James Doyle

Coroebus

J: James Doyle
T: Charlie Appleby
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 115
Days: 203

Should be unbeaten. Coroebus won very well on debut at Newmarket, then he was pitched straight into the G2 Royal Lodge, and went clear, travelling easily 2f out but was ultimately collared by Royal Patronage on the line.

I think they worked out he had more or less an instant change of gear, so changed the tactics next time out and readily asserted in the G3 Autumn Stakes over today’s C&D.

Coroebus could be anything, but the lack of a recent run is a question mark, though he seemed to gallop well here recently. Top chance.

Checkandchallenge

J: Daniel Tudhope
T: William Knight
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-0
OR: 108
Days: 15

Unbeaten in two starts, twice on the AW. He won on debut late November last year over 7f, so the assumption is he was quite a backward 2yo.

He won the Burradon on his latest start, and he did do it well. Checkandchallenge is well bred, but on form, he’s a far way off the standard.

However we can take into account the likely improvement to come. One to watch.

J: Kevin Manning
T: J S Bolger

OR: 99

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking last time out, a Leopardstown. He beat Flying Dolphin and Temple Of Artemis (rated high 80’s), so Boundless Ocean would need to improve at the very least, around 30lb to get involved here.

Trainer and jockey won this last year so connections know what’s needed, but he’s likely to come up short.

Eydon

J: David Egan

N/A

Weight: 9-0
OR: 109
Days: 16

Placed third, and second in his first two starts at Newcastle. Eydon broke his maiden at the first time of asking, in listed class in the Feilden just over two weeks ago.

That was a good run and he did beat some nice enough horses with relative ease. He is a big horse and it’s only a positive he’s had the recent run.

Comes from left field, but could surprise a few.
