Group Three Jersey Stakes Guide

King Leonidas

Trainer: John Gosden

Jockey: Frankie Dettori

This son of Kingman looks another exciting prospect for the Gosden team and looks to have a good chance here in a competitive race.

He is currently two from his two in his career, winning two novice races, both at Newmarket. The first of which came at the back end of last season before following up on Guineas weekend, where he carried a 7lb penalty.

Molatham

Trainer: Roger Varian

Jockey: Jim Crowley

He is one of the more experienced, having had the four runs in his career but comes here fresh, having not ran so far this season.

He was second at Ascot on debut behind the highly impressive Mums Tipple before breaking his median at the York Ebor festival.

His most impressive performance was when winning the Flying Scotsman at Doncaster, beating recent Guineas second Wichita and classic trial winner Berlin Tango, so that form reads strong.

He was sent off favourite when last seen in the Autumn Stakes at Newmarket but was a well beaten fourth, on soft ground.

Celestin

Trainer: F Chappet

Jockey: James Doyle

He comes over from France and brings classic form to the table too, after finishing fourth in the French 2000 Guineas, beaten around two lengths.

He has already had two runs this season so will be a lot fitter than other runners but his two victories in his career thus far have come on heavy ground so conditions may not be perfect.

Lord Of The Lodge

Trainer: Karl Burke

Jockey: Ben Curtis

This is his first attempt of a trip over six furlongs so his stamina will be tested. Some of his two-year-old form is smart, he was a close second in the Grade two Gimcrack Stakes at York to Threat, who won next time and takes his place in Saturday’s St James Palace.

He ran in a conditions race at Newcastle in February which won comfortably so fitness will be okay but will have to step up.

Monarch of Egypt

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien

Jockey; Ryan Moore

A $750,000 purchase, this son of American Pharoah had an interrupted two-year cold career but did run second on two occasions to recent Irish 2000 Guineas winner, Siskin.

He finished seventh in that Guineas, but that performance can be marked up, he was caught in a pocket on the rail and had little room to operate and a step back in trip could suit this pacy sort.

Final Song

Trainer: Saeed bin Suroor

Jockey: William Buick She was highly tried last year after winning on debut at Ascot and some of her two-year-old form reads very well.

She was third at last years Royal Meeting in the Queen Mary to Raffle Prize and Kimari before losing her way a little.

She won a race in Meydan over the winter before falling off the boil there. She came straight to the 1000 Guineas and was a 100/1 shot but massively outran her odds, finishing fourth.

This trip should suit, and she could go well.

Mystery Power

Trainer: Richard Hannon

Jockey: Silvestre De Sousa

He comes here fresh after a decent two-year-old career, but he will have to have improved massively on that to feature here.

He was a well beaten seventh in the Dewhurst when last seen and before that ran a good race in the Mill Reef when second to the exciting Pierre Lapin, one of the favourites for the Commonwealth Cup later on in the week.

Repartee

Trainer: Kevin Ryan

Jockey: Andrea Atzeni

Another that makes his season reappearance here and stepping up in trip for the first time, so will have to prove his stamina and be ready.

He ended last season with a second at Doncaster to King’s Lynn and was also third in the Gimcrack at York behind Lord of the Lodge, so will have to reverse that form.

Ventura Lightning

Trainer: Richard Fahey

Jockey: Tony Hamilton

He is one of the more exposed runners in this field and steps up to seven furlongs for the first time.

He has already had a run this season, when fifth in the Pavilion Stakes at Newcastle, where he seemingly got out paced and whilst this trip may suit, he will have to considerably step up on his form.

Mister Snowdon

Trainer: Richard Hughes Jockey: Shane KellyAnother big priced runner but he hasn’t done much wrong in his career so far, winning both of his races.

He made his debut just before racing was stopped in March, winning a Wolverhampton novice and backed that up under a penalty at Yarmouth a fortnight ago but this is a huge step up in class.

Symbolize

Trainer: Andrew Balding

Jockey: David Probert

Andrew Balding is a trainer in form at the minute but has one of the less fancied runners here.

He hasn’t ran since August, when a respectable fifth in the Richmond at Goodwood but this stiff seven furlong may prove a task too far, with his only career victory coming over five.

Above

Trainer: Archie Watson

Jockey: Oisin Murphy

Another big priced runner and is one of the most exposed runners in the field, with this his seventh start.

He had a couple of wins as a two year old, winning a handicap at Wolverhampton and was third to Alson in a German group three which is his best piece of form but this a hugely difficult assignment and it’s difficult to see him getting involved.

Fleeting Prince

Trainer: Charlie Hills

Jockey: Kieran Shoemark

He also comes out the Pavilion at Newcastle, where he finished fourth and may appreciate the step up to seven albeit this is a stern test.

He has not won since breaking his median at Windsor last July and his two-year-old form is average. This should be too difficult.

Ropey Guest

Trainer: George Margarson

Jockey: Tom Queally

He’s 0 from 10 in his career and this isn’t the race where he’s going to break his median, the outsider of the lot has been given a huge task here.
