G2 – 2400m – Turf


Al Zaraqaan

Stable in great form. This colt has won his last four starts, crushing some smart rivals on the Kempton all-weather last time. No reason according to pedigree why he should not also thrive on turf.


Pablo Escobar

His final start of 2020 was a rare disappointment for this consistent horse. Previously always travelling nicely when winning a G3 at Goodwood. Trip ideal and no worries about the 252-day absence.



Proved his long odds wrong when winning a G2 at Royal Ascot later winning another G2 and then a close third in a G1. Occasionally disappoints but very good on his day. A strong gallop would help.


Sir Ron Priestley

Has a fantastic attitude, loving a battle. Runner-up in the St Leger, a G1 UK Classic, in September 2019 and kicked off 2021 with a good win. Has lots of stamina but speed also. Best on good ground or faster.



His recent return at Sandown was modest without any obvious excuse except possibly for a lack of race fitness. A G2 winner last July, but there must be some stamina questions for this 2400m.
