G1 – 1594m – Turf

1 Alpine Star Took time to hit top gear but was very strong at the end when winning a 1400m G2 at The Curragh last August. Not seen since but has reportedly thrived.
2 Cloak Of Spirits Improved on some useful two-year-old efforts when runner-up in Newmarket’s G1 1,000 Guineas, though never threatening the winner.
3 Love Locket Not one of the stable’s stars in 2019 but made a good start to 2020, responding well to her rider to win a 1400m Leopardstown G3 this month.
4 Quadrilateral Exceptional last year including a G1 Newmarket win.  Favourite for the G1 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket, racing much too keenly. A good 3rd in the circumstances.
5 Run Wild A high class two-year-old, she made a terrific start to 2020 dominating the later stages of a 2000m Listed event at Newmarket. No worries about the drop back in distance.
6 Sharing Fascinating US challenger who quickened decisively in a G1 Breeders’ Cup race last November, winning again on her return last month. Used to racing on fast ground.
7 So Wonderful Has failed to win in nine starts so far but has been placed in hot company and kept galloping – just not quickening enough – when 3rd in the G1 Irish 1,000 Guineas.
