Trainer - Mark Johnston
Jockey - Franny Norton
The first runner in the Hardwicke Stakes is the Mark Johnston trained Communique who is horse that holds plenty of ability but does give a mixed bag of performances in the big races.
His second run of the season at Newmarket was one of his best to date landing the Roaring Lion Jockey Club Stakes, beating some nice runners.
Stepping up to Group 1 in the Coronation Stakes found him out slightly and if he wants to challenge in this field he will need to get back to his best and reverse some form.
