1400m – Turf

Buon Voyage

Filly showing improvement this spring. Moving up in class after a neck win at Kyoto in late-May. Best over 6 furlongs but has ample chance.


Good speed and proven at distance at class below. Best performance a 1.3L 3rd in the Listed Marguerite Stakes (1200m) in February. Could surprise if this trip suits.

Hush Go Go

Highly consistent filly with excellent speed. 2-4-2 in last three starts, all over 1400m. Returning from 4-month spell.

Kurino Ariel

Won 6 on dirt after transferred to NAR circuit in 2018.  Moved back to JRA last summer for a turf win over 1800m last September. Good late speed.

Lugar Santo

Broke maiden over Hanshin 1400m last September. Went wire to wire last out in May over Kyoto 1400m a class below. Speed decent but move up in class may be tough.

Meisho Titan

Good early speed. Excitable in the G1 NHK Mile Cup in May latest but should fare better at this level. Both wins over Hanshin 1400m. Ample chance.


Lacklustre in his 2019 campaign, best a 3rd under similar conditions last September. This will be her second start this year. Trackwork sufficient. Good speed.

Sensho Yuto

Well beaten in last 4 starts. Lacks speed. Likely not a contender.


Has made board in last four starts, including win at this distance at Chukyo in March. Experienced at Hanshin. Improvement expected from last start early this month.

Super Feather

Raced primarily over 10 furlongs and up, also G2-placed over 2400m as a 3YO. Given his first start shorter than 1800m. Last start a month ago and current racing style could translate to success at this distance.

Twinkle Leaf

Strong filly primarily raced over dirt, with all 3 wins over 1400m. Starts on turf for the first time since unsuccessful grass outing in summer 2019. Wild card.

Walk The Line

Had success on dirt but little over grass. Good late speed but likely not a contender.
