N/A
Age: 8
Weight: 9-5
OR: 105
Days: 21

This 8 year old has plenty of experience in the books but has slowly seen himself slide out of group level competition and looks more at home in handicaps currently.

The winner of this race back in 2019, he’s gained multiple group success over 7 furlongs throughout his career but has slowly seen his form dip off recently.

A decent enough 5th in this race back in 2020, he’s recently come back from a long lay off but has only been seen in handicaps where he hasn’t really looked the horse he used to be.

Last seen coming 2nd over 6 furlongs at Pontefract, he may be no stranger to this race but will likely be susceptible to younger legs.

Pogo

J: Kieran Shoemark

N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-5
OR: 115
Days: 31

A highly tried 6 year old horse, Pogo has found some decent success in his career having won 7 of his 33 career outings and hitting the form of his life recently.

After spending the majority of his career in handicap company, he started to find a mark In the mid 100’s too hard to get competitive off so was switched to listed company. Immediately scoring smartly at the higher grade he was then pitched into group company which found him out for quality.

Last season yielded another listed win but again saw him struggling at group level. However this season he’s turned a corner and looks better than ever.

Winning a group 3 by a nose over 7 furlongs at Haydock he then backed that up to win again at the same level in even more impressive fashion at Newmarket.

He’s worth a go at this slightly higher level and is in the form of his life.

Lord Of The Lodge

N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-5
OR: 104
Days: 71

Only successful at a relatively low level at the start of his career, Lord Of The Lodge did post a decent 2nd to be behind Threat in the 2019 Gimcrack Stakes.

He’s been kept more of less constantly on the go since December of 2020. Winning a couple of handicaps and a conditions race, he’s not shown a whole lot to suggest that he could be effective in this sort of company.

A 2nd place in a listed race over 6 furlongs on the all-weather back in February is his standout piece of form and he’ll need to show more than that in this deep looking race.

Happy Power

J: James Doyle
T: Andrew Balding
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-5
OR: 108
Days: 31

An experienced 6 year old for Andrew Balding, Happy Power rose from the handicapping ranks before being tried in better races. Scoring at listed level over a mile, he then failed to make the transition up to group races.

A change in trip to 7 furlongs for 2020 saw him gain more success. Winning a conditions race easily before going on to score twice at group level.Winning a group 3 here at Goodwood before getting the better of Pogo in a group 2.

He failed to hit the same heights last season and didn’t manage to record a victory, however he did run well to be a close 3rd in this race last year.

He has got his head back in front in a listed race so far this season but has looked out of place in group races again. More will be required here.

N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-5
OR: 112
Days: 38

Ralph Beckett’s 5 year old really found his feet over this trip last year and captured this race in fine fashion to beat Creative Force narrowly last season.

Tried over 7 furlongs to 9 furlongs up until he was 4 years old, a gelding operation and a drop in trip brought out the best in him last year and he handily dispatched a smart field over 7 furlongs at Haydock to win a group 3. His win here at Goodwood followed before a decent enough 5th in the Prix Maurice de Gheest.

He just failed to get truly competitive in his last two outings of the season but has looked smart enough this year. Only beaten a neck by Pogo at Haydock on seasonal return, a drop to 6 furlongs saw him outpaced in the Diamond Jubilee last time out.

Returning to his optimum trip will help and he won this last year against a smart rival. Not to be discounted.

Sacred

J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-2
OR: 113
Days: 38

Sporting the red, white and blue of Cheveley Park Stud, Sacred looked one to follow when being a runner up in only her second start in the Queen Mary Stakes. She failed to turn that promise into group wins but shaped well in defeat multiple times that season.

An interrupted campaign last season meant she was only seen three times. Winning the Nell Gwyn Stakes on her seasonal return, she was then well beaten in the 1000 Guineas to come home 7th of the 11 runners.

However she bounced back to form when dropping back to 7 furlongs and secured a group 2 win in fine fashion. She was by no means disgraced in her comeback run this season in the Diamond Jubilee.

Only beaten a length and running on well to be a closing 5th. Moving back up in trip will help and she’ll strip fitter for her recent run.

If showing the same form she’s going to be hard to beat here.

Jim Crowley

Laneqash

J: Jim Crowley
T: Roger Varian
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-5
OR: 110
Days: 17

An impressive debut seemed to suggest Laneqash was going to have a successful season but he failed to win at listed and group level before being put away for the winter.

A fruitless season last year saw him gelded off the back of 3 runs. A decent run behind Sacred to be 2nd the best of the trifecta. However he’s looked much better this season.

Only beaten a nose by Pogo at Haydock on return, he put in a lacklustre performance off the back of that to be easily beaten by the same rival.

He did bounce back to form last time out and handily won a listed race at Chester in good fashion. He doesn’t look the most straightforward of types but his close defeat behind Pogo and good win last time out surely can put him in the mix.

Age: 3
Weight: 8-12
OR: 108
Days: 88

After winning on debut in smart fashion, Gubbass then scored in the Weatherbys Super Sprint smartly. Thrown into deeper waters off the back of that he failed to really sparkle at group level. Struggling to really make his presence felt over 6 furlongs.

Returning this season in the Greenham Stakes he again looked outclassed in group 3 company. Dropping in grade last time out saw him at listed level and again left wanting for ability.

He’s since been gelded and the procedure will need to eke out plenty of improvement for him to get seriously involved in a group race of this calibre.

Ever Given

J: Daniel Tudhope

N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 8-12
OR: 108
Days: 31

Hugo Palmer’s 3 year old colt Ever Given was highly tried last season when in the care of Tom Dascombe. Winning a novice race and then going on to perform well in handicaps, he then managed to score a decent pot when winning the Premier Yearling Stakes at York.

A return in handicap company this season saw him easily defy a mark of 97 without breaking sweat over 6 furlongs on soft ground.

However, moved up in grade off the back of that he failed to really get involved in the Sandy Lane Stakes when meeting trouble in running.

Moved up in trip and granted smooth passage at Epsom saw him gain a listed win in decent fashion. Last seen being beaten by Pogo at Newmarket, he still looks to be lacking the quality for group races.

Andrew Balding’s 3 year old filly rose to fame when scoring last year’s renewal of the Albany Stakes smartly under David Probert.She continued her progression to handily win the Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes at Newmarket.

She failed to win in her final two outings of the season but ran creditably in some deep contests. A return to racing in the 1000 Guineas saw her shape well enough over a mile to be 5th, fading late on.

She’s been kept at a mile since and has run well in defeat in group 1 races without really threatening to win. A well beaten 7th in the Coronation Stakes was then followed by a good 3rd in the Falmouth Stakes.

A drop in trip looks like it’ll suit and she’s not been disgraced in group 1 company so far this campaign.

Age: 3

OR: 114
Days: 16

Richard Hannon’s 3 year old Lusail had a highly successful juvenile season last year which saw him win two group 2 events smartly before a slat run on his last outing over 7 furlongs.

A decent return in the Greenham Stakes behind Perfect Power started this season before a decent enough 5th in the 2000 Guineas despite a huge price tag. A courageous run at Royal Ascot saw him only beaten narrowly in the St James’s Palace Stakes behind red hot favourite Coroebus.

Last seen putting in another decent performance in France over 7 furlongs, he hit the front a furlong from home but found himself outpaced and settling for 3rd late on.

A mile has looked like his optimum trip and he struggled to show the necessary pace over 7 furlongs last time out. Likely to be left wanting for tactical speed again here.
