1
Jocket Silks 1. ADMIRAL NELSON
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
2
9-1
Expensive Kingman colt who could hardly have been more impressive when scoring at the Curragh first time out, cruising through the race and quickening in good style. Bold showing expected.

2
Jocket Silks 2. ARMY OF INDIA (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: Mark Johnston
2
9-1
Well tuned up to make a winning start at Kempton, fast away and finding plenty to edge a tight finish, so he's not open to as much improvement as some.

3
Jocket Silks 3. CHORITZO
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: David Loughnane
2
9-1
Finished strongly to lead late when making a winning start at Wolverhampton but this is a huge leap in class.

4
Jocket Silks 4. CREATIVE FORCE (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
2
9-1
Dubawi colt related to plenty of winners and looked to possess lots of talent when making a winning start at Newmarket earlier in the month. Big claims with progress on the way.

5
Jocket Silks 5. DARK LION (IRE)
J: David Egan
T: Roger Varian
2
9-1
Was a warm order for his debut and kept on from further back than ideal when fourth to Creative Force at Newmarket, so should be able to get a fair bit closer to that rival on this occasion.

6
Jocket Silks 6. EXISTENT
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
2
9-1
Well-bred type who made a pleasing start when third in a maiden at Newmarket earlier in the month, shaping as if he'd come on for the experience. Big step forward can't be ruled out.

7
Jocket Silks 7. IGOTATEXT (IRE)
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
2
9-1
Picked up by new owners since running out a comfortable winner at Lingfield 15 days ago, overcoming a wide draw and greenness. Should improve but has plenty to find.

8
Jocket Silks 8. LAUDED
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Tom Dascombe
2
9-1
Highly impressive and professional start when making all at Haydock 12 days ago and possesses the qualities that can see him competitive in a race like this. Solid claims.

9
Jocket Silks 9. MEHMO (IRE)
J: Non Runner
T: Gay Kelleway
2
9-1
Struggled to make an impression on debut at Yarmouth and little chance in a race of this quality. NON RUNNER.

10
Jocket Silks 10. NANDO PARRADO
J: Adam Kirby
T: Clive Cox
2
9-1
Didn't have a hard time when mid-field in a strong novice at Newmarket 16 days ago but looks well out of his depth in this company.

11
Jocket Silks 11. PAINLESS POTTER (IRE)
J: Martin Harley
T: Alan King
2
9-1
Encouraging start when a considerately-handled third of 12 to Army of India at Kempton 18 days ago. Could reverse form with that rival now more clued up.

12
Jocket Silks 12. QAADER (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Mark Johnston
2
9-1
Soon in front and forged clear in the style of an excellent prospect at Newbury 8 days ago. Form has already been boosted and he's a colt that looks well forward, so bold showing expected.

13
Jocket Silks 13. SAEIQA
J: Martin Dwyer
T: John Gosden
2
9-1
Shaped well when third to Creative Force at Newmarket on debut, not knocked about having chased the leaders. He'll be hard to pressed to turn the tables on that rival, however.

14
Jocket Silks 14. SCIENCE (IRE)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Archie Watson
2
9-1
Quite an expensive purchase who knew his job when narrowly touched off by Army of India at Kempton on debut. Tried in cheekpieces now, but others have more scope.

15
Jocket Silks 15. TALBOT (IRE)
J: Tom Marquand
T: Brian Meehan
2
9-1
Gleneagles colt who impressed with his finishing effort when well on top of his rivals at Lingfield recently. Well worth his place in this company with a lot more to come.

16
Jocket Silks 16. THUNDER OF NIAGARA (IRE)
J: Joe Fanning
T: Mark Johnston
2
9-1
Night of Thunder colt who readily saw off a subsequent winner when making a successful debut at Newcastle a fortnight ago. Entitled to step forward if stall 1 doesn't prove too much of an issue.

Analyst's Verdict

The way ADMIRAL NELSON put the race to bed on debut was highly impressive so, while he's got a bit to find in terms of bare form with a few rivals, Aidan O'Brien's Kingman colt is capable of taking a big step forward. Qaader and Creative Force, who were comfortable winners at Newbury and Newmarket respectively, appeal as the big dangers in a fascinating event.

The event was established in 1890, and was named after the ninth Earl of Coventry, who served as the Master of the Buckhounds at that time.

The race was initially installed at Group 3 status, but was upgraded to a Group 2 in 2004, where the John Gosden-trained Iceman, ridden by Kieren Fallon prevailed.

The Coventry Stakes sees the leading two-year-olds from the UK and Ireland line up in what is usually an ultra-competitive contest and has a habit of throwing up a star of the future, with the likes of Canford Cliffs (2009), Dawn Approach (2012) and Caravaggio (2016) all winning the race this century.

For decades, the winner of this race has been regarded as one of the leading two-year-olds and it's not a shock to see them competing in Classic company the following season, most likely to feature in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Dawn Approach was the last horse to complete the double, while Canford Cliffs emulated Henrythenavigator by landing the Irish equivalent, providing jockey Richard Hughes with a first Classic success.
