1
Jocket Silks 1. ARTHUR'S KINGDOM (IRE)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Progressive 2yo who took the step from maiden to Group 1 company in his stride when runner-up in the Criterium de Saint-Cloud 7 months ago. Better still expected now up in trip.

2
Jocket Silks 2. MOGUL
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Highly-progressive colt who left the impression there was even more to come when a staying-on fourth to Kameko in Futurity Trophy at Newcastle 7 months ago. Leading player with trip sure to suit.

3
Jocket Silks 3. MOHICAN HEIGHTS (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: David Simcock
3
9-0
Picked up for £520,000 on the back of a winning debut in Ireland and forged clear impressively starting out for his new yard in a listed event at Salisbury 9 months ago. There's plenty more to come.

4
Jocket Silks 4. PAPA POWER
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding
3
9-0
Scored twice after an encouraging debut, defying a penalty with a minimum of fuss at Newcastle earlier this year. Big hike in class here, but he's open to plenty of improvement.

5
Jocket Silks 5. PYLEDRIVER
J: Martin Dwyer
T: William Muir
3
9-0
Dual winner in 2019 who ran a big race to finish fourth in the Classic Trail at Kempton on return. Hard to imagine he'll have enough class to land this, however.

6
Jocket Silks 6. SOUND OF CANNONS
J: P. J. McDonald
T: Brian Meehan
3
9-0
Useful juvenile who shaped as if he'd returned in form when fourth in the Derby Trial at Lingfield recently. He's out of his depth in this, though.

Analyst's Verdict

The tremendously well-bred MOGUL did everything right as a juvenile, signing off with an encouraging fourth behind the subsequent Guineas winner in November, and he's the type to come into his own now tackling middle distances. As such, he takes preference over stablemate Arthur's Kingdom, with the unbeaten Mohican Heights also difficult to rule out.

It is open exclusively to three-year-old colts and geldings, and being the same length as the Epsom Derby, often features runners from that race. It was even called the Ascot Derby when it was first established in 1834, before taking on its current title in 1926.

The Epsom Derby comes up quite early in a horse’s three-year-old season, and this race provides the more late-maturing types with an alternative – but still extremely valuable – midsummer target. That patient approach has certainly paid off with the likes of Nathaniel and Old Persian in recent years. The former won this race in 2011, before going on to win the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes on his next start, while 2018 winner Old Persian was last seen recording a first Group 1 success in the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan in March.

William Buick guided both Nathaniel and Old Persian to their wins in the King Edward VII Stakes, and having also won the race on Eagle Top (2014) and Permian (2017), he is tied with Frankie Dettori as the leading active jockey on four wins. Dettori recorded his first success on subsequent St Leger winner Mutafaweq in 1999, before adding to his tally this century with Campanologist in 2008, Monterosso in 2010 and Across The Stars in 2016.

As far as trainers are concerned, John Porter recorded no fewer than nine wins (1867, 1869, 1882, 1885, 1895, 1896, 1899, 1902 and 1904) around the dawn of the 20th century. Of those still training, Sir Michael Stoute is a long way clear of his peers with seven wins (1983, 1991, 1994, 2002, 2006, 2013 and 2016), with his first winner Shareef Dancer still the last to go on to win the Irish Derby.
