David Probert

Majestic Dawn

J: David Probert
T: Paul & Oliver Cole
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-7
OR: 111
Days: 49

This 6 year old son of Dawn Approach previously ran well before his last two starts so he will have to bounce back here. He finds himself in calmer waters, so the drop down in Class may just benefit him.

He won a Class 1 Listed event at Goodwood over 1m2f in May before finishing a decent second in a Group 3 overseas at Deauville where the third placed horse that day Monty went onto win next time out, so there is some form that ties in with this colt.

Steps back up to the extra furlong which will suit. Player if he can return to form.

William Buick

Forest Of Dean

J: William Buick
T: John & Thady Gosden
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-4
OR: 106
Days: 259

One of two for the ever consistent training combination of John & Thady Gosden. Godolphin play their card with Forest Of Dean who just like Bolshoi Ballet has not been seen for a long time, 259 days to be exact.

His last win came in 2021 in a Group 3 over course and distance where he beat the Marco Botti trained Felix by ¾ length.

Remains with some potential and William Buick takes the ride so would not be surprising to see him in the mix. A player and even more so if late market supports comes in for him before the off.

Luke Morris

Al Zaraqaan

J: Luke Morris
T: Archie Watson
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-4
OR: 104
Days: 162

This 5 year old son of Golden Horn has been recently seen running over longer trips, such as 2m and 2m1f over hurdles.

He drops back down to 1m2f so it will be interesting to see how he copes with that, but looks to have it all to do especially after a fairly lengthy absence of 162 days.

He has notched up a couple of wins over obstacles yet this looks much tougher considering it is his first run on the flat in Class 1 company for so long.

Remains a bit of an unknown so not sure what exactly to expect. Watch out for any market support for Archie Watson’s versatile gelding.

James Doyle

Harrovian

J: James Doyle
T: John & Thady Gosden
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-4
OR: 108
Days: 134

John & Thady Gosden’s second runner in this and one who may just have the better chance of winning this race.

He has not been seen too often, but he did in fact finish second in this race last year behind the eventual winner Pyledriver.

Could be well prepared for this contest again so he is a major player with in form jockey James Doyle taking the ride.

Represents value at the price he is.

Daniel Tudhope

Tyson Fury

J: Daniel Tudhope
T: Richard Spencer
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-4
OR: 103
Days: 378

It looks highly unlikely that this lad will live up to the name of ‘Tyson Fury’ on this occasion and looks to be one that may have chances in future events that are much weaker than this one.

His best performance in recent times has to be when he finished second at huge odds of 33/1 in a Class 1 Listed event at Goodwood, but that did seem to be a one off as no real form came from that race.

One to ignore.

Robert Havlin

Algiers

J: Robert Havlin
T: Simon & Ed Crisford
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-4
OR: 110
Days: 14

Moved over from French trainer Andre Fabre to Simon & Ed Crisford’s yard late last year and has shown signs of progression.

He was seen running in Dubai early on this year and he did well where he was victorious in a Group 3 at Jebel Ali.

He stepped up to Group 2 company on his next start at Meydan, but was a big price that day so you can ignore that run.

He returned to British soil winning a Class 2 at York over the distance so he may be one of interest back over that trip again here.

Certainly not ruled out

Seamie Heffernan

Bolshoi Ballet

J: Seamie Heffernan
T: A P O'Brien
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-4
OR: 111
Days: 335

This 4 year old son of Galileo has notched up just the four wins from his eleven career starts so far and he will be looking to make it a fifth career success here after a very lengthy 335 days off the track.

He was last seen in America at Del Mar in the Grade 1 Breeders Cup Turf, but he was a big price that day and failed to make any impression.

Prior to that, he went off as the 11/8 favourite for the 2021 Derby, but again did not justify being the favourite on that occasion.

May be primed for this race after such a long break and trainer Aidan O’Brien might have the horse in such good order this time round.

A short enough price and comes with risks, but would be no surprise to see him land this sort of contest if he is fit and raring to go.

Topanticipation

J: Pierre-Louis Jamin
T: Harry Eustace
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 8-13
OR: 90
Days: 59

The outsider of the field and one to completely dismiss here. Has shown very little in races weaker than this and just has not had the experience that some of her other rivals have had.

May prefer a longer trip of about 1m4f so not fancied to threaten other rivals this time round.

Millebosc

J: NON-RUNNER
T: William Haggas
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-4
OR: 97
Days: 118

William Haggas sends over Millebosc for this year’s renewal of the Listed Churchill Stakes, but he comes with risks attached.

He has only won once, that came on debut a couple of years ago and he has not shown much since. Has been a consistent runner in France, but has not shown signs of any real quality over a set of different trips, including a mile and 1m2f.

Interesting that the 4 year old colt comes over to race at Lingfield, but looks to have a tough assignment on his hands. An unlikely winner.

The Wizard Of Eye

J: David Egan
T: J S Moore
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-1
OR: 105
Days: 50

One of the outsiders and for good reason too. He has been a regular running over a mile so stepping up to 1m2f may just be asking a bit too much of this 3 year old colt.

He has finished well down the pecking order in his recent runs, but did manage to place at odds of 40/1 in July.

He ran well that day finishing only a ¾ length behind the German trained winner of that Group 3, Rocchigiani. Has not shown anything to warrant him being considered here.

Missed The Cut

J: Jim Crowley
T: George Boughey
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 9-1
OR: 108
Days: 89

Trainer George Boughey looks to have a talented 3 year old colt on his hands as this grandson of Sea The Stars made it 3-3 on his penultimate run at Ascot over the trip in a Class 2 event.

He is bred to stay, but was bitterly disappointing last time out. Only one rival finished behind him in a Class 1 at Deauville over 1m2f, he was the odds on favourite that day too.

He is clearly well thought of and a return to British soil may just bring the best out of him once again, so looks a player in what could be a very open affair.

Evania

J: Daniel Muscutt
T: Kevin Philippart De Foy
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 8-13
OR: 85
Days: 61

This 4 year old filly is 2-2 albeit those two wins came in Class 5 and Class 4 company. After her debut win she moved stables from the Gosden’s which may have been a surprise to people considering she won her first ever race.

Since that switch she won for the second time at odds of 10/1 when winning over 1m4f at Kempton.

She obviously needs to improve massively for this as she is stepping up in Class, but has potential to do so. One to consider at a bigger price.
