G1 – 1200m – Turf

1 Armor Raised his game significantly on his third and latest start when accelerating impressively on slow ground to win a 1000m G3 at Goodwood. Should be at least effective over this trip, according to pedigree.
2 Asymmetric Has won three of his four starts – all at this trip – and is apparently laid back and easy to train. He showed a lethal turn of foot from off the speed to win a G2 at Goodwood last time.
3 Baghed Has shown plenty of speed to win in Italy, and, though the grade is weaker there, his second in a 1200m G2 at Chantilly last month showed he could compete effectively in French group company.
4 Dizzy Bizu A smart young performer who has won twice at Chantilly. Although second over this course and distance in a G3 here, an improved performance is going to be required for this G1.
5 Gubbass Won his first two starts, notably when showing too much speed for 21 rivals in a valuable ‘sales race’ on fast ground at Newbury. Looked to prove himself at this trip when a close third in a Goodwood G2 last time.
6 Have A Good Day Is the winner of three of her five starts and earned her place in this when responding well to Soumillon’s driving to win a soft-ground G3 over this course and distance earlier this month.
7 January Moon Yet to win and surely has no chance here.
8 Josejosephine Has won both starts, latterly outspeeding her rivals over 1000m at Longchamp in May. But the form of that has not worked out and, in any case, this is a much bigger challenge.
9 Khunan Only once a winner but connections decided to head for this G1 after a terrific second in a G2 at Goodwood last month. Looks to prefer good or slow ground.
10 Perfect Power Showed terrific late speed to win a G2 over 1000m on his third career start. Then appeared unlucky in a G2 at Goodwood, only getting space to challenge when it was too late at Goodwood. Has chances with better luck.
11 Quick Suzy Showed some dazzling speed to win a 1000m G2 at Royal Ascot in June. Proven also over 1200m, her supporters will be hoping that the very good recent record of fillies in this prestigious G1 will continue.
12 Solotov Made a career winning start over 1100m at Chantilly but appeared to be outclassed in a G3 at the same track subsequently.
13 Toimy Son Has the advantage of having won over this course and distance and running okay when fifth in a G3 last time. But surely not good enough to win this.
14 Trident Justified favouritism when winning easily on his debut at Longchamp over 1300m, and earned a crack at this G1 when a close third in a soft-ground G3 here this month.
15 Velocidad Has won both her starts – both at this trip – and on different ground conditions latterly when having no difficulty winning a G2 at The Curragh. She could be very good.
