Emaraaty Ana

J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Kevin Ryan
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-5
OR: 112
Days: 15

Showed real quality during the second half of last season where he found himself finishing

second in the Nunthorpe at York before going one better in this race. Jockey, Andrea Atzeni

rode him to victory in the race last year so a repeat of that could well be on.

Had an ideal prep run for this with another placed effort (3 rd ) in the Nunthorpe only 15 days

ago. For this horse to be right there would be no real surprise. Has a huge chance.

Days: 20

Ran fairly well when actually third in this 12 months ago but has yet to fire at all this season.

Her latest third in a Pontefract fillies listed event shows no sign of any form and she was a

well fancied favourite that day and flattered to deceive.

No signs of taking a step in the right direction. Tongue tied for the first time and very hard to

fancy on this year's form and the way she has been running of late.

Age: 6

Days: 15

Looked like a real Group 1 sprinter early in his career and this 6 year old son Dark Angel has

been right back on track of late. Was a dominant winner of the Palace House in April before

following up in the Group 2 King George Stakes.

Just behind the last year’s winner of this race Emaraaty Ana when fourth in the Nunthorpe

last time out. Has to be at his previous best to have any real chance of taking this 2022

Sprint Cup.

Very progressive if you look at his form from last season but has not kicked on as of yet. He

was a close third in a Newmarket listed event on his last run but he was a well fancied 3/1

favourite that day and this looks to be a real challenge for Ed Walkers 5 year old.

Hard to fancy.

Has C&D experience as he was fourth and fifth in the last 2 runnings of this race. Showed his

speed when running modestly 3 ¼ lengths fourth of 9 other rivals to Kinross in the City of

York Stakes on good to firm ground.

Returning to 6f could really help this horse move forward. Only had one run since

reappearance so not sure what to expect.

Days: 105

One of three runners for Hugo Palmer in this year’s race. This trainer seems to have got the

best out of the horse who has shown what a talented sprinter he can be. Went on to win a

C&D conditions event on reappearance in May and followed up in the Group 2 Greenland at

the Curragh 2 weeks later.

Absent for over 100 days but no real concern given he has a good record when going fresh.

Could be up for adding this to what would make a third win on the bounce.

Days: 14

After a few disappointing performances, this 5 year old gelded son of Kingman bounced

back to the top of his game when a convincing winner of the City of York over 7f two weeks

ago.

Has shown he is certainly not short of speed but his very best form has come at that

distance so will have to adapt to life back at 6f here today. Chance if he runs to his best form

and cannot be dismissed with Frankie on board.

Naval Crown

J: William Buick

N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-5
OR: 118
Days: 27

Dubawi colt, Naval Crown landed a career best when winning the Platinum Jubilee at Royal

Ascot over 6f in June.

Saw himself very close to that form when finishing second in the July Cup at Newmarket and

was just stretched by an extended 6f when behind current favourite Minzaal and Rohaan in

the Prix Maurice de Gheest. Has to be high on the shortlist for top trainer Charlie Appleby

and current champion jockey, Will Buick who is on top form which is not a surprise.

This lightly-raced 4 year old son of Mehmas had a few of today's rivals behind when he got

back to winning ways in a strong contest of the Group 3 Hackwood at Newbury in July.

He then found himself ¾ lengths second of 14 other rivals to eventual Nunthorpe winner,

Highfield Princess in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville. Big player when looking at that

form, will be right in the mix. Player.

A fairly smart filly who won a Newmarket listed event on reappearance, but her limitations

have been exposed in stronger races since and it is hard to see her playing any significant

role here against some rivals who have ran in Group company.

Has no real chance whatsoever, opposed.

N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-5
OR: 113
Days: 14

He ran well back to form with a great effort when landing a second successive win in the

Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot. Put in a more than acceptable effort when splitting

Minzaal and Naval Crown (the two market leaders) in the Prix Maurice de Gheest and the

City Of York last time out simply was not run to suit this horse.

He tends to be a hold-up horse and will likely still be in fairly decent form if he gets the luck

of the race this time round. Has to be respected.

Looked an impressive individual at 2 years of age when notably runner-up in the Middle

Park on final start. Was off for 10 months and shaped as if needing the run when below-

form fifth in a Curragh Group 2 on reappearance.

Off another 7 weeks since then and definitely has something to prove but looks to have

maybe not progressed as a 3 year old. Has a lot to find in Group 1 company.

Was victorious on five occasions at 2 years of age, including a listed race and showed

promise with even better form this term. Followed up a Chester conditions event success

with excellent runner-up efforts in the Sandy Lane over C&D and Commonwealth Cup at

Royal Ascot.

Given a break since a below standard run in the July Cup Stakes and is another for Hugo

Palmer in this race. Really needs to bounce back and he could be hard to fancy this time

round.

Found himself behind one rival who he will have to face again today Flaming Rib in the

Sandy Lane and Commonwealth Cup but has got his career back on track since, finishing

second to current favourite Minzaal in the Hackwood.

Two more rivals ran below par that day with Dubawi Legend and Rohaan behind. Won well

last time out making all at the Curragh in a Group 3 last month. Cheekpieces worn in Ireland

are retained which could see him being competitive in this field.

Stepping down in trip seemed to have suited this horse where at 6f he was third to Minzaal

and Go Bears Go in the Hackwood at Newbury in July.

Not quite so good in Ireland next time but back on track with German Group 3 success last

weekend but that may not count for much in Group 1 company here, will be interesting to

see how he fares this time round.

Half-sister to Hello Youmzain who won this race for connections back in 2019. Possesses lots

of ability herself but she really went backwards from a good reappearance run in the

Commonwealth Cup when last of 12 other rivals in a York Group 3 in July.

Kevin Ryan has a good recent record in this but she would be a very surprising winner here

as she is the current outsider of the 17 runner field. Does not look to be Kevin Ryan’s

strongest competitor, completely oppose.

A very progressive type as he comfortably landed traditionally strong 3 year old handicaps

at Newmarket and York at the start of the summer. Showed further progression when

stepping up to listed company and eventually took that in his stride at Deauville in July.

Winning run then came to a halt when only he finished only tenth in the Prix Maurice de

Gheest since which is not the best form but could run better than that back over here in

Britain. Looks a tough ask but could bounce back.
