It’s that time of the year again where the blue of Godolphin, Charlie Appleby and Will Buick mop up in these sorts of races with their talented squad of horses.
Their Dubawi gelding is the highest rated horse in the field with a BHA rating of 117, only 1lb above Catch Twentytwo, who had some decent form in South Africa before being purchased by the Chapple-Hyam team.
The Godolphin horse was an impressive 3 length winner of the Group 2 Superlative Stakes at Newmarket in 2020, then went on to essentially contest in a few top Group races before winning the Group 3 Craven Stakes on this meeting last season, then went on to contest in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, where he finished a short head second to top miler Poetic Flare.
He has some brilliant form at Newmarket with form figures of 11123 at the HQ of flat racing.
He goes well fresh, and should the yard have him primed for this, he will be incredibly hard to beat in this, before hopefully going onto bigger and better things this season.
Fantastic form at Newmarket and goes well fresh, comes from a top yard and has some very good form at this trip, very much the one to beat for top connections.
