1
Jocket Silks 1. BONNE VITESSE (IRE)
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: Brian Ellison
2
9-0
Put experience to good use when scoring at Pontefract 8 days after her debut last week. Looks out of her depth in this company, however.

2
Jocket Silks 2. CIRRUS
J: Pat Dobbs
T: Richard Hannon
2
9-0
Starspangledbanner filly who showed plenty of ability when runner-up on debut at Newmarket just over 2 weeks ago. She looked fairly professional already but is obviously still entitled to progress.

3
Jocket Silks 3. DANDALLA (IRE)
J: Ben Curtis
T: K. R. Burke
2
9-0
Looked potentially useful when making a winning debut at Newcastle 17 days ago, especially as she went so exuberantly up with the pace. Certainly open to improvement.

4
Jocket Silks 4. FLYING ALETHA (USA)
J: William Buick
T: Wesley A. Ward, USA
2
9-0
Created a good impression when won 7-runner maiden (7/2 and blinkered) at Gulfstream by 5½ lengths from Lime 4 weeks ago, making all and clear over 1f out. Should stay 6f and is open to improvement.

5
Jocket Silks 5. FOLLOW SUIT (IRE)
J: Liam Keniry
T: Clive Cox
2
9-0
8,000 guineas yearling. Kodi Bear half-sister to 2 winners who made a winning debut, showing a good attitude in the process, at Wolverhampton 10 days ago. Likely to be up against it here though.

6
Jocket Silks 6. GOLDEN MELODY (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: William Haggas
2
9-0
52,000 guineas yearling. Daughter of Belardo is related to several winners and made a convincing start when scoring at Haydock 12 days ago, despite looking a touch green. Sure to improve.

7
Jocket Silks 7. MAHALE
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Mick Channon
2
9-0
Foaled February 19. 37,000 gns foal, Kodiac filly who showed plenty to work on when fourth at Newmarket on debut, not knocked about. She will be suited by 6f and looks sure to progress.

8
Jocket Silks 8. MARIANCE
J: Rob Hornby
T: Jonathan Portman
2
9-0
Adaay filly who finished with running left when fourth on debut at Lingfield 13 days ago. Outsider in this company but likely to improve on that initial outing.

9
Jocket Silks 9. MOTHER EARTH (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
2
9-0
€150,000 yearling, Zoffany filly who shaped very well when runner-up on debut at Navan 9 days ago, forced to switch over 1f out and finishing well. Likely to be popular for leading connections.

10
Jocket Silks 10. SETARHE (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Roger Varian
2
9-0
160,000 gns yearling, Footstepsinthesand filly who overcame unfavourable circumstances (missed break) to make a winning debut at Newmarket 15 days ago. She's in great hands and is sure to do better.

11
Jocket Silks 11. UNDERTAKE
J: David Egan
T: Roger Varian
2
9-0
Kodiac filly who made a winning start in ready fashion at Lingfield 13 days ago, leading inside final 50 yds. She's in great hands, and there's sure to be more to come in due course.

12
Jocket Silks 12. VALPOLICELLA
J: Rossa Ryan
T: Paul & Oliver Cole
2
9-0
Tamayuz filly who caused somewhat of a surprise to score on debut at Newmarket 15 days ago under a strong ride. She's open to improvement and holds each-way claims here.

13
Jocket Silks 13. VENTURA VISION (FR)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Mark Johnston
2
9-0
€120,000 yearling who couldn't justify strong market support but offered something to work when on runner-up at Chelmsford on debut. He'll improve, but maybe not enough to be involved here.

14
Jocket Silks 14. WILLABELL (USA)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
2
9-0
War Front filly who knew her job on debut at Yarmouth but just found one too good and headed close home. She will improve and is likely to be popular for a top connections.

Analyst's Verdict

Wesley Ward's FLYING ALETHA couldn't have been any more impressive when bolting up in her maiden at Gulfstream last month. The step up to 6f holds no fears, and she could be tough to pass if getting an easy time of things up front. Golden Melody, Mother Earth and Willabell are a trio of potential improvers who are likely to be in the mix for leading connections.

Established in 2002, the Albany Stakes originally held Listed status and was run as the Henry Carnavon Stakes. It was given its present title the following year and promoted to Group 3 status in 2005, when La Chunga provided the race’s leading jockey, Jamie Spencer, with the first of his four wins. Spencer has also won the race on Nijoom Dubai (2007), Samitar (2011) and Kiyoshi (2013).

Mick Channon trained both Nijoom Dubai and Samitar, and, having also won the race with Silca’s Gift in 2003, the former England footballer holds the distinction of being the most successful trainer in the history of the Albany. Samitar went on to win the following year’s Irish 1000 Guineas, demonstrating that the race is not just a source of precocious two-year-olds, but also one that produces horses who go on to enjoy successful three-year-old seasons.

The race has typically been dominated by British yards, but that has changed in more recent years. Aidan O’Brien became the first trainer based in Ireland to win the race courtesy of Brave Anna in 2016, while Matthieu Palussiere provided France with its first win in the race 12 months later, when Different League held off the challenge of Alpha Centauri to maintain her unbeaten record.

Although she was beaten in the Albany, Alpha Centauri is arguably the best horse ever to have run in the race. She went on to win four Group 1s as a three-year-old, with her most impressive performance coming when returning to the Royal meeting for the Coronation Stakes, which she won by six lengths.
