Kensington Palace Handicap 2021 Racecard

6:10 Wed 16 Jun KENSINGTON PALACE HANDICAP

Distance: 7f 213y Age: 4yo + Prize: £33,501 Going: Firm

Analyst's Verdict

A fiendishly competitive handicap to finish with the narrow vote in favour of DREAMLOPER. Just touched off by re-opposing Lights On over 1m here last month, she was still a shade keener than ideal and with this bigger field scenario a likely plus, she is fancied to come out on top. The latter named is upwardly mobile also and feared, along with So I Told You, Caspian Queen and Dalanijujo.

1
jockey silks 1. LIGHTS ON
J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
4
9-10
Landed a 1m novice as a 2-y-o and progressed again this term, winning on return at Nottingham and digging deep to follow up over 1m here in May (coming clear with runner up). Expected to go well again
2
jockey silks 2. TOMORROW'S DREAM (FR)
J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
4
9-10
Useful filly who scored twice in handicaps last term. Far from disgraced at a higher level since, 7 lengths fourth in Epsom Group 3 (8.5f) earlier this month. Career-high mark to defy here, though.
3
jockey silks 3. WALIYAK (FR)
J: David Egan
T: Roger Varian
4
9-8
Consistent, useful filly who resumed progress when bolting up in a Lingfield handicap (10f) in September. Midfield at listed level final start and not ruled out on return for in-form yard.
4
jockey silks 4. STUNNING BEAUTY (IRE)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Saeed bin Suroor
4
9-8
Dual 1m novice winner as a 3-y-o who dispelled pair of lesser efforts at Meydan earlier this year when back to winning ways at Doncaster (1m) 12 days ago. However, this demands more from 3 lb higher.
5
jockey silks 5. DREAMLOPER (IRE)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Ed Walker
4
9-8
Low-mileage filly who ended last season with success over 1m here in September. Improved again in defeat this spring, just touched off by Lights On here in May. 1 lb better off with that rival now.
6
jockey silks 6. SO I TOLD YOU (IRE)
J: D. B. McMonagle
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
4
9-7
Back on track upon joining present yard, landing back-to-back Sligo handicaps at around 10.5f in May, latterly by 5 lengths. Career-high mark to defy now but not ruled out in present groove.
7
jockey silks 7. PHOLAS
J: Hollie Doyle
T: George Boughey
4
9-4
A big success story on AW this year, improving again to land valuable conditions event at Lingfield on Good Friday. No significant impact on turf since, albeit out of depth in Epsom Group 3 latest.
8
jockey silks 8. MOSTLY
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John & Thady Gosden
4
9-2
Low-mileage 4-y-o who showed useful form to double career tally at Kempton (1m) in March (on back of a wind op). Too free in Nottingham listed event (10.2f) since and drop back in trip a plus.
9
jockey silks 9. APRICOT MOON
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: George Boughey
4
9-2
Unable to make impact at listed/Group level in Ireland for Andrew Oliver last year but possible return/yard debut at Nottingham was needed in April. Needs to show benefit of that run to feature.
10
jockey silks 10. DECLARED INTEREST
J: Rob Hornby
T: Ralph Beckett
4
9-1
Strong in betting to resume winning ways at Chelmsford (10f) final start last year and picked up where she left off to go in again at Leicester (8.2f) in May, winning readily. Should go well again.
11
jockey silks 11. SEPARATE
J: Sean Levey
T: Julie Camacho
4
8-13
Kept busy as a 2-y-o but largely disappointing during light 3-y-o campaign. Good third on Nottingham return for new yard and soft ground a plausible excuse when well held behind Lights On here since.
12
jockey silks 12. CASPIAN QUEEN (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: S. P. C. Woods
4
8-13
Promising third returning from 6 months off at Lingfield (7f) in April and built on that when getting on top close home at Kempton (7f) in May. Totally unexposed at this sort of trip and interesting.
13
jockey silks 13. ANGEL OF THE GLEN (FR)
J: Pierre-Louis Jamin
T: K. R. Burke
4
8-11
Landed Thirsk maiden/handicap on 2 of 3 starts last season and ran well to finish runner-up on first 2 starts this spring. Struggled at listed level since though, and this another tough ask.
14
jockey silks 14. QUICKSTEP LADY
J: David Probert
T: Andrew Balding
4
8-11
Off the mark in a Goodwood novice (7f) in August and hit the frame next 3 starts, runner-up at Wolverhampton in March having conceded first run. Not in same form at Doncaster (7f) latest, however.
15
jockey silks 15. DALANIJUJO (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Mick Channon
4
8-9
Consistent during light 2020 campaign and improved form to make winning return at Yarmouth (1m) last month, getting on top final 100 yds. Only 4 lb higher now and interesting under William Buick.
16
jockey silks 16. LOLA SHOWGIRL (IRE)
J: Laura Pearson
T: David Loughnane
4
8-7
Lightly-raced filly who justified market support to make a winning return at York (7f) last month, making the running and battling well when challenged. Return to this longer trip should hold no fears
17
jockey silks 17. FFION
J: Richard Kingscote
T: David Loughnane
4
8-7
Won pair of AW minor events (7f) last year and hard to knock her exploits in handicaps this spring, collared late on at Haydock (7f) 25 days ago. Encounters much quicker conditions here however.
18
jockey silks 18. MISS MULLIGAN (IRE)
J: Hayley Turner
T: George Scott
4
8-6
Winner at Windsor (1m) in October. Consistent in handful of starts so far this term, staying on close home when third at aforementioned venue (11.5f) 9 days ago. Takes a marked drop back in trip now.
