Diamond Jubilee Stakes �V Form Comments


G1 - 1200m – Turf



This consistent money-spinning HK sprinter continues to run terrific races at the top level including when only failing by 1/2L to catch Peniaphobia in the LONGINES HK Sprint last December. His trainer believes that Ascot's straight 1200m and slower ground than he is used to will help his cause.



Australia have a fine record in this. Usually very fast from the gates as he was when showing a dominant display of speed over 1300m in a G1 at Randwick in March. He won't be getting any allowances here though still in his three-year-old season in Australia. He's still respected.


Jungle Cat

Finished second to Profitable in a G3 over 1000m two starts back, and Profitable's G1 success here earlier this week has massively enhanced the form. Back to 1200m looks very suitable.


Magical Memory

A straightforward speedster who has improved massively in the past 12 months, surging up 21lb in the ratings. Despite racing too freely he won a G3 in Newmarket in April and again accelerated stylishly for a G2 win at York last month. Chances.



He has recorded Group wins in both France and Ireland over this distance and finished third in a G1 at York last August. Has twice finished behind Magical Memory in his two starts this season, though had a poor passage latterly.


Signs Of Blessing

A consistent French-trained speedster who shows his best form when the ground is really testing as it was when he won a Listed event over 1100m at Fontainebleu. A disappointing favourite in a Deauville G3 last time.



A French recruit who has made a great start at his new base, and posted a career best when a closing half-length second of 12 behind Magical Memory in a G2 at York last month. Soft ground would help most.


The Tin Man

Has improved 30lb in the ratings since last July. Quickly becoming a high class handicapper he then ran a cracker when fourth in a G1 sprint over 1200m here last October. A smooth win in a Listed event last month, suggests he's serious here.


Twilight Son

A revelation last season, soaring up the ratings and the winner of a G1 at Haydock before a terrific second in a G1 here. Although only fifth at York on his return he spent much of the race on the wrong part of the track. Good or soft ground required.



He showed some devastating pace to win this last year and comes here after winning a G2 at Keeneland in April, grabbing the money in the last strides. The only worry is the ground - drying conditons look essential.
