Lord Glitters

J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara
Age: 9
Weight: 9-7
OR: 115
Days: 82

Lord Glitters has been a superstar for the yard over the years landing multiple Group One events and even at the of nine is still putting in high class performances.

Winning a Group One over 9f in March last year he is a natural at coming from off the pace and could have one more big race left in him.

After that the gelding was seen five times in England chasing home Palace Pier in the Group One Lockinge Stakes and Queen Anne Stakes, finishing fourth both times.

A step down to a Group Three had him only beaten by a quickly improving Saeed Bin Suroor runner in Real World and that form is fairly decent.

He then put in two lesser runs at Haydock in the Superior Mile and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, with the latter event seeing to many special talents to compete with.

Given a month off he returned in the Bahrain International at Sakhir and at huge odds went on to take the event from Barney Roy, with a superb late sweeping run.

Since then he has been seen three more times at Meydan over 9f, running to a fair level in all of them, especially in February when taking the Group Two Singspiel Stakes.

Although he does bring some negatives with his age and weight, he is mostly consistent and can't be ruled out.

Tom Marquand


J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
Age: 8
Weight: 9-2
OR: 120
Days: 222

Addeybb has been a superstar for the inform William Haggas over the years winning Group One events in Australia and England but now at the age of eight could be past his best.

Last term he was seen twice back down under, finishing a narrow second in the Group One Ranvet Stakes behind the smart Verry Elleegant.

The two met again next time out in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes and he managed to reverse the form under a superb ride by Tom Marquand.

Having conquered Australia for a second time he came back to England and having swerved Royal Ascot went straight to the Coral Eclipse where he was well beaten by the superstar St Mark's Basilica.

Not seen again until trying to retain his title in the Champion Stakes at Ascot, he could only go on to finish sixth of the nine runners, looking nowhere near his best.

Needs to be better and might need the run.

Will want rain.

Passion And Glory

T: Saeed bin Suroor
Age: 6
Weight: 9-2
OR: 109
Days: 61

Passion And Glory for Saeed bin Suroor is the first of his two runners in the race and he looks to have it all to do on the bare face of his recent form.

A smart horse last season landing a hat-trick of wins in the summer, including a handicap at Ascot, the Group Three Glorious Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and the Group One Grosser Preis von Baden in Germany.

Given some time off he returned in January this year at Meydan and has put in some less than impressive performances on all four of his runs in the middle east and on that form needs much more.

Trip looks on the short side for him.

Ryan Moore

Bay Bridge

J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
OR: 112
Days: 208

The four year old is one of the most exciting horses in the field showing big ability on both his starts as a juvenile, finishing third at Yarmouth on soft ground over 7f on debut.

He then went Kempton in November and finished another good fourth behind the smart Rebel's Romance for Charlie Appleby, who has since landed a Group Two in Meydan.

Back for last season he stepped up in trip on seasonal debut at Newcastle over 1m2f and got off the mark for his career in fine style landing a Novice Stakes by five lengths, beating some smart horses.

Making his handicap debut next time out he was an emphatic winner again off a mark of 90 in the London Gold Cup at Newbury.

Having picked up a slight setback he made his first appearance since May 2021 in October and up 15lb to a mark of 105 he still went on to win well.

Last seen at Newmarket at the back end of last term he stepped up to Listed company and managed to make it four wins on the bounce when seeing off the talented Majestic Dawn.

Big player if still improving and trainer has won this race 10 times.

Dubai Future

J: Pat Cosgrave
T: Saeed bin Suroor
Age: 6
Weight: 9-2
OR: 112
Days: 61

Dubai Future is the second Godolphin and bin Suroor runner in the field and like his stablemate has a tough task of hitting the frame on form.

A winner on his first start this year at Meydan over 12f in a Listed event, he was then stepped up to 14f and could only finish a tame fourth.

Fifth in the Red Sea Turf Handicap in Saudi Arabia over 1m7f and then last time out well outclassed in the Dubai Sheema Classic, the yard will be hoping the drop in trip can bring improvement.

Up against it.

Mostahdaf I

J: Jim Crowley
T: John & Thady Gosden
Age: 4
Weight: 9-5
OR: 118
Days: 34

Making his debut in March last year, he was a taking winner at Newcastle over 7f and then backed that up at Kempton and Sandown over a mile, with his latter run coming in Listed company to bring up the hat-trick.

Looking to make it 4/4 he went into the Group One St James's Palace Stakes at the royal meeting where he ran no race at all only beating one home.

He got back on track after a little break in September winning at Sandown again in Listed company over a mile and then up to 9f next time out took the Group Three Darley Stakes at Newmarket.

Having his first start this term he picked up from where he left off last term by landing the three runner Group Three Gordon Richard Stakes decisively.

A highly progressive four year old that has proved himself at this level and handling both quick of soft ground he has a big future.
