BAAEED (Queen Anne Stakes – Tuesday 14th June 2:30pm) 1/3
We start things off with arguably the banker of the week – BAAEED. William Haggas’ unbeaten superstar is the jewel in the flat racing crown currently and should be winning this with relative ease.
He went from strength to strength last season, eventually beating Palace Pier in a thrilling renewal of the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Champions Day at Ascot. That was his second Group 1 victory of the season and he proved he has trained on with a comfortable victory in the Lockinge Stakes on reappearance last month.
He is without a doubt the class horse in the race and is the closest thing we’ve seen to a true superstar miler since Frankel. If he is going to be put in the same class as him, he needs to be winning this, and we think he’ll do it comfortably!
NATIVE TRAIL (St James’s Palace Stakes – Tuesday 14th June 4:20pm) 5/1
Next up is NATIVE TRAIL, who we’re adamant would’ve won the 2000 Guineas if he’d had a better draw. Coroebus may have come out on top that day, but at a different course and with a bit more luck in the draw we’re backing Native Trail to reverse the placings.
For Native Trail to finish as close as he did to Coroebus in the Guineas just shows how good a horse he is, and he proved that with a convincing win the Irish 2000 Guineas. That day he won cosily enough despite being short of room and having to switch when pushing to make his run, and with a clearer run he would’ve undoubtedly won by even further.
He will be determined to prove his class against Coroebus and the sheer price difference is enough to make us pick him. We think he’s the better horse anyway, so for him to be 5/1 and Coroebus to be an odds-on shot seems madness! Native Trail for us please, onto the next.
BAY BRIDGE (Prince Of Wales’s Stakes – Wednesday 15th June 3:40pm) 6/4
Sir Michael Stoute had a convincing winner of the Epsom Derby with Desert Crown, and he may well have another star in the form of BAY BRIDGE. After winning four of his six races last year, he resumed winning ways on reappearance and seems to be getting better with each run.
That reappearance run in the Group 3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown was seriously impressive. The way he kicked clear of his rivals in that final furlong showed he’s the real deal, and the quality of the horses he pulled clear of tells you that. He left the likes of Addeybb and Mostahdaf well behind when scooting clear, and with the exception of Mishriff there doesn’t seem to be much that can challenge him here.
Mishriff had a shocker in the Saudi Cup so will need to bounce back from that, and Japanese raider Shahryar could be anything but will need to be fully wound up on his UK debut. It makes sense to stick with the guaranteed class horse, and that’s Bay Bridge.
HOMELESS SONGS (Coronation Stakes – Friday 17th June 4:20pm) 6/4
HOMELESS SONGS may be up against some talented rivals in this (notably Inspiral), but the way she demolished the field in the Irish 1,000 Guineas is enough to make her our pick for the Coronation Stakes.
She got herself in front and quickened away from the likes of Tuesday and Concert Hall, and that form took a nice boost when Tuesday ran out a game winner of the Epsom Oaks last week. Further down the field, Purplepay (6th) has since come out and won the Group 2 Prix de Sandringham in Chantilly last weekend too.
There’s every chance Inspiral could continue her unbeaten run here, but she hasn’t been seen since winning the Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket last October. So, we’re siding with the guaranteed fitness of Homeless Songs to follow up that convincing win in the Irish 1,000 Guineas and land the Coronation Stakes.
HURRICANE LANE (Hardwicke Stakes – Saturday 18th June 3:40pm) 1/1
We round things off with HURRICANE LANE in the Hardwicke. Another horse who dominated last year, and has only lost twice in his eight races. He didn’t lose any credit in either of those defeats – he finished third in the 2021 Epsom Derby when losing both front shoes, and came third in the Arc de Triomphe on unsuitably heavy ground.
Charlie Appleby’s colt is a three-time Group 1 winner, winning the Irish derby and the Grand Prix de Paris before running out a comfortable winner in the St Leger. His final run of the season came in the Arc de Triomphe, where he only just failed to hold on, despite meeting trouble in running and the ground being far softer than ideal.
He’s run well fresh in the past, and providing he takes up this option he should take all the beating in this before going on to bigger and better things this summer!
