G3 - 2000m – Turf


Blue De Vega

From an Irish stable starting to make a big impact and his third in the G1 Irish 2000 Guineas at The Curragh last time means he needs respect here. Drying ground would be a big help.



Won his only start last year, surviving soft ground even though his jockey said he didn't like it . He ran a really good second in a Listed event over this distance at Newmarket in April.



He has won his last four starts and moved up in class and to this distance to land a Listed event at Newmarket on his 2016 debut. In that event they went slowly early but sprinted late.


Long Island Sound

Has won all three starts and is bound to be popular from this stable/jockey combination. He led from start to finish to win over 1636m at Killarney last time even though his rider said that those tactics were not ideal.



An expensive yearling purchase, he has looked inexperienced on both his starts but won nicely second time in a Chester maiden. Second and third have let the form down since, but to the eye Mulk was stylish that day.


Prize Money

A well-regarded Godolphin-owned colt who has done nothing wrong in three starts. He started favourite for a 2200m Listed race at Goodwood last time but was just outstayed by a tough colt who went on to run in the Derby.


Race Day

Gelded since his penultimate run, doing OK in a 1400m Listed event at Newmarket last time. He moves up in trip but looks the Godolphin third string here.


Royal Artillery

Easy winner of a 1400m maiden last season. His trainer warned that he would need his 2016 return and so it proved but he looks very promising and seems sure to appreciate this distance.


Steel Of Madrid

Beat three rivals in a slowly-run Listed race at Newmarket last time, his jockey insisting the victory would have been easier with a stronger pace. Looks best on good or quicker ground.
