Long Distance Cup Runner-By-Runner Guide

Stradivarius 10/11

Trainer: John Gosden

Jockey: Frankie Dettori

Group One Victories: 3

Top class four-year-old unbeaten this season. Came a close third in this last year but this renewal looks weaker. One of only two horses in the field to have won over this distance. Likely winner.

Flag Of Honour 9/4

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 1

Will look to be first three-year-old winner of race since 2009. Has improved as season has gone on and won Irish St Leger last time out. Player if taking to ground.

Thomas Hobson 8/1

Trainer: W P Mullins

Jockey: Andrea Atzeni

Group One Victories: 0

Former Hurdler with decent form on the flat. Performance to win Doncaster Cup puts horse in the frame but the drop back in trip may not suit.

Capri 10/1

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 2

Ran solid fun in the Arc to finish fifth. Stepping up in distance after season that has consisted of only three runs. 2017 St Leger winner who has repeated three-year-old form. Also entered in Champions Stakes.

Kew Gardens 10/1

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 2

Won this year’s St Leger and ran admirably in the Arc. Will still need to be improving and suited to the distance to win. Highest rated horse in race.

Sir Erec 12/1

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Least exposed horse in race. Won Listed race on heavy ground last time out in taking fashion. Plenty more to find but if the principals struggle in the deep ground the horse could be dangerous.

Mount Moriah 16/1

Trainer: Ralph Beckett

Jockey: Harry Bentley (16/1).

Group One Victories: 0

Career best effort to win Listed race back in April. Did not figure in either outing at Group level and off since June. Unlikely.

Weekender 16/1

Trainer: John Gosden

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Well beaten by Flag of Honour in Irish St Leger. Second in Ebor prior to that and best win to date was a handicap at Chelmsford.

Desert Skyline 33/1

Trainer: David Elsworth

Jockey: Gerald Mosse

Group One Victories: 0

Figured in six Group races this season being placed only once. That was when Three length second to Stradivarius in Yorkshire Cup. Did beat Thomas Hobson at Group level last season.

Cypress Creek 33/1

Trainer: A P O’Brien

Jockey: TBA

Group One Victories: 0

Made rapid progression to win Group 3 in Ireland last time out. Form prior to that poor and unlikely to figure.
