Hollie Doyle

Passion And Glory

J: Hollie Doyle
T: Saeed bin Suroor
N/A
Age: 6
Weight: 9-10
OR: 112
Days: 48

Has not been consistent whatsoever in recent runs apart from when he bounced back with a Listed Sandown event in July.

He beat the likes of Regal Reality and William Haggas’ Addeybb that day.He is another one who has been seen at Meydan running in a couple of high class races, including a Group 2 contest earlier on in the year.

Trainer in solid form and Hollie Doyle gets the ride so he could be in the mix.

Ryan Moore

Global Storm

J: Ryan Moore
T: Charlie Appleby
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-7
OR: 105
Days: 34

Godolphin’s third and final runner in this and trainer, Charlie Appleby’s second. This gelding won a handicap in Meydan on reappearance which came in February.

Since then he has not shown any level of real consistency but might find this race will suit him more.

Has won over the trip before, so that will not be an issue and it is rare you see Ryan Moore ride for team Appleby and Godolphin so he has to be noted as one to keep an eye on.

Will be interesting to see how the market develops, not dismissed.

Andrea Atzeni

Without A Fight

J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Simon & Ed Crisford
N/A
Age: 5
Weight: 9-12
OR: 113
Days: 76

Jockey and trainer won this race last year with Without A Fight, so they will be looking to complete the double again in this year’s renewal.

In the popular Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum colours, this 5 year old gelded grandson of Dubawi looks to be in with a right chance once again.

Has shown some good form, especially recently when winning over 1m6f on two occasions.

Both of these came at York and he beat the same horse twice, John Leeper finishing second in these two efforts. No reason why he cannot go close and win this Listed race again.

Neil Callan

Farhan

J: Neil Callan
T: John Butler
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-7
OR: 98
Days: 35

This colt has been a very consistent performer for trainer, John Butler. Could not get his head in front when finishing second on a few occasions last season, before winning a Class 2 at Doncaster over 1m4f.

Ran poorly since, but caused a shock during the Ebor Festival at York as he went on to be victorious in the Sky Bet Class 2 Handicap.

He won at huge odds of 20/1 that day, and Neil Callan gets the leg up again but this does look much harder when comparing him to the rest of this field. Will have to cause another big shock to win.

Jack Mitchell

Juan De Montalban

J: Jack Mitchell
T: George Boughey
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-7
OR: 104
Days: 35

This 4 year old son of Lope De Vega has had a mixed start to his career so far, as wins have come at the start of his two and three year old campaign and more recently with wins at Ascot over 1m4f.

If he can bounce back from his latest run at York where he finished eight of 16 rivals here at Newmarket, he could be fancied to run a big race.

Stepping up in Class, but might have more to give. Not totally out of things.

William Buick

Siskany

J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-7
OR: 114
Days: 6

Godolphin play a strong looking hand in this race as all three of their runners look to have a solid chance. Siskany is a very smart gelded son of Dubawi, who has recently been seen in Dubai and Saudi Arabia.

He was a three-time winner last year and added a Meydan listed race to his record in January. Another good run saw him finish third of 14 other rivals in a high-quality handicap in Saudi in February.

He went off favourite 6 days ago at Newbury, but ran a stinker as he faded 1f out. Might have needed the run back on UK soil so he is fancied to come on from that here.

Respected.

Tom Marquand

Candleford

J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
N/A
Age: 4
Weight: 9-7
OR: 103
Days: 34

A gelded son of Kingman who has notched up three wins from 10 career starts so far. More recently he won a Class 2 at Ascot over 1m4f on good to firm ground and he will likely get those conditions again, but this is a much tougher ask.

He did not back that Ascot win up when finishing down the rest of the field over this course back in July. Hard to fancy going off recent form.
