Duke of Cambridge 2021 Racecard

3:40 Wed 16 Jun DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE

Distance: 8f 0y Age: 4yo + Prize: £82,880 Going: Firm

Analyst's Verdict

There was a lot to like about how LADY BOWTHORPE pulled clear of the remainder when runner-up to Palace Pier in the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury last month and she can take advantage of this good opportunity back against her own sex. Queen Power and Lavender's Blue, the pair who chased her home at Newmarket the time before, should again give a good account.

ODDS
1
jockey silks 1. CHAMPERS ELYSEES (IRE)
J: Ben Martin Coen
T: John Patrick Murtagh, Ireland
4
9-5
Progressed rapidly last season, completing 4-timer in the Group 1 Matron Stakes at Leopardstown. Not at best both starts this season and needs to be back to her very best under a 5 lb penalty here.
2
jockey silks 2. LADY BOWTHORPE
J: Kieran Shoemark
T: William Jarvis
5
9-3
Beat several of these when coming out on top in Dahlia at Newmarket on return before excellent second in Lockinge at Newbury, clear of rest. The one to beat on that form. Has 3 lb penalty.
3
jockey silks 3. QUEEN POWER (IRE)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Sir Michael Stoute
5
9-3
Proved better than ever when landing the Middleton (1¼m) at York last month and had previously pushed Lady Bowthorpe close over 1m1f in Dahlia. Respectable third in this last year. Has 3 lb penalty.
4
jockey silks 4. AGINCOURT (IRE)
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara
6
9-0
Just denied in this last year and looked back to her best fitted with a tongue strap when headed on the line in listed race at Goodwood on return. Unlikely to be far away.
5
jockey silks 5. BOUNCE THE BLUES (IRE)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Andrew Balding
4
9-0
Progressive for John Feane in Ireland and further improvement when placed in Group 3 at Doncaster/Newmarket listed race for this yard. Respectable efforts both starts this term but more needed here.
6
jockey silks 6. DOUBLE OR BUBBLE (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: Chris Wall
4
9-0
Most progressive, winning 2 from 2 last season and completing hat-trick in handicap at Newmarket on return. Stamina to prove and more needed up in class, but remains unexposed so worth a shot at this.
7
jockey silks 7. FOORAAT (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Roger Varian
4
9-0
Highly tried after winning 2 novices on the AW but showed she's still progressing when second to Lavender's Blue in listed event at Kempton on return. May do better still after just 6 career starts.
8
jockey silks 8. INDIE ANGEL (IRE)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John & Thady Gosden
4
9-0
Developed into a useful filly last year, landing a 1m listed race at Lingfield. Better for return when good fourth to Lady Bowthorpe in Dahlia at Newmarket but bit to find with most of these.
9
jockey silks 9. LAVENDER'S BLUE (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Amanda Perrett
5
9-0
Strong-travelling mare who endured a luckless campaign last season but returned with a decisive success at Kempton and better than ever when third behind Lady Bowthorpe in the Dahlia. Headgear fitted.
10
jockey silks 10. ONASSIS (IRE)
J: Hayley Turner
T: Charlie Fellowes
4
9-0
Likeable filly who made a winning return in Sandringham over C&D at this meeting last season before winning 2 listed events. Far from disgraced in Champions Sprint here final start. Frame claims.
11
jockey silks 11. PARENT'S PRAYER (IRE)
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
4
9-0
Career-best effort when winning the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom last week, finding plenty for pressure after kicking on early in the straight. Going the right way but this is much tougher.
12
jockey silks 12. POSTED
J: William Buick
T: Richard Hannon
5
9-0
Showed smart form when taking Sandown listed event last season, dictating steady pace. Unable to repeat that form under patient tactics both starts since, including in Dahlia at Newmarket on return.
13
jockey silks 13. VALERIA MESSALINA (IRE)
J: Shane Foley
T: Mrs J. Harrington, Ireland
4
9-0
Smart filly who was only just denied in a Group 3 (7f) at Glorious Goodwood last season. Excuses at the Curragh on return and may still have more to offer.

Betting Forecast : 9/4 2.25 LADY BOWTHORPE, 11/2 5.5 QUEEN POWER, 14/1 14 DOUBLE OR BUBBLE, 16/1 16 LAVENDER's BLUE, 16/1 16 ONASSIS, 16/1 16 CHAMPERS ELYSEES, 20/1 20 AGINCOURT, 20/1 20 VALERIA MESSALINA, 20/1 20 FOORAAT, 20/1 20 PARENT's PRAYER, 22/1 22 INDIE ANGEL, 22/1 22 BOUNCE THE BLUES, 33/1 33 POSTED
