Spearheading the market in the Godolphin blue is Space Blues. The prolific 5 year old ripped this race apart last year under Will Buick, scything through the field to leave Duke Of Hazzard in his wake.
A fast 7 furlongs is his ideal and he’s gained an eye-watering mark of 120 for his sprinting displays.
A perfect summer campaign last year saw him win all four outings, moving from Listed to Group 1 victories, culminating in a 6.5 furlong success at Deauville beating Diamond Jubilee winner Hello Youmzain.
We haven’t seen him since a poor showing in Al Quoz Sprint in Meydan, the drop to 6 furlongs proving a little too sharp for him.
He’s returning off a break but sets a strong standard and won this race as he pleased 12 months ago. The one to beat on paper.
