Palavecino

N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-2
OR: 104
Days: 125

Already gaining triple figure price tags for this race, Palavecino has spent most of his career contesting handicaps over 8 to 12 furlongs.

He’s tasted some decent success in that time but has usually failed in transferring that form to higher levels.

He did recently score over 10 furlongs in a handicap despite a mark of 101. Now rated 104, handicaps will look a little stiff for him but this contest looks well beyond the capabilities of his talent.

Living Legend

N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-2
OR: 112
Days: 35

Charlie and Mark Johnstone’s 6 year old Living Legend has hit a brilliant run of form this year.

Despite being beaten in handicap company and in a listed race on his first couple of outings for the year, he improved to score over 10 furlongs in listed company back in March.

He backed that up with an emphatic display at Newcastle to score the All-Weather middle distance championship stakes.

He’s recently managed to transfer that form to turf and scalped short price favourite Yibir at Newmarket over a mile and a half in late April.

In the form of his life it’s no surprise to see connections aim higher but this 6 year old has to improve yet again to get involved here.

Jim Crowley

Hukum

J: Jim Crowley
T: Owen Burrows
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-2
OR: 116
Days: 69

A vast improver through last season. Hukum claimed grade 3 honours as a 3 year old before a 5th placed effort in the 2020 St Leger.

He hit new heights however when going on a wonderful run of form last summer. Winning a listed race, three group 3 events. Ranging from 12 to 14 furlongs.

His seasonal return came over in Meydan where he got off the mark at grade 2 level in a narrow victory over a mile and a half on turf.

Last seen aiming at a group 1, he ran well but didn’t get on terms fast enough to trouble the winner, coming home in 7th.

It’s likely he’s just below this level but is well worth another try at it.

Frankie Dettori

Pyledriver

J: Frankie Dettori
T: William Muir & Chris Grassick
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-2
OR: 120
Days: 69

A stable star for William Muir and Simon Grassick. A listed winner at 2, Pyledriver then went on to score higher honours as a 3 year old. Winning the King Edward VII stakes and the Great Voltigeur Stakes.

Despite being beaten on reappearance last season, he bounced back with a gutsy display to win this race last year. Some fitness issues kept him off the track until November however. Missing his ideal target of the arc.

He shaped with plenty of promise in a recent outing at Meydan over a mile and a half and will strip fitter for having that effort in the books.

The one to beat on paper.

N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
OR: 119
Days: 12

Aidan O’Brien sends over High Definition off the back of a career best run in the Tattersalls Gold Cup.

Only caught late on by Alenquer over 10 furlongs, he made the race a real test of stamina and was only just collared late on.

He’s been a difficult sort to place for connections, having tried between 10 and 14 furlongs.
He was beaten in lower grade affairs over this trip last season but looked in fine form last time out.

He’s got something to prove over 12 furlongs again and is trying to back up after just 12 days.

William Buick

Manobo

J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
OR: 113
Days: 69

A lightly raced Godolphin 4 year old, Manobo has only recently had his only career defeat.

A perfect start to life racing as a 3 year old saw him capture a maiden and a novice handsomely. Given a short break his sights were aimed higher and he gained an easy listed success. Stepping up in trip he was impressive when scoring the Prix Chaudenay over 15 furlongs.

This season he’s been over in Meydan. Showing his strong stamina when winning a group 3 over 14 furlongs before last time out just being beaten over 2 miles.

He steps back markedly in trip here but looks to have the class and speed to deal with it.
