Runner-By-Runner Guide

Autocratic

Best in at the weights on official ratings, despite carrying a 3lb penalty for his previous Group 3 success, and trained by the race’s leading trainer Sir Michael Stoute. However, all wins have come on quick ground, and good to soft may be lon the slow side for him.

Arthenus

Beaten in a variety of Group Races, but has run well in two starts in August in the previous two seasons. Bit to find.

Ayrad

Listed winner who has fallen short at Group 3 level on several previous attempts, and also disappointed in a Listed Race last time.

Francis Of Assissi

Off that track since winning twice at Group 3 level in Australia for Charlie Appleby, and the Godolphin trainer could have mustered further improvement since. However, you need to take a chance on his fitness.

Gabrial

Always tries hard at this sort of level, but seems better at a mile than this extended 10-furlong trip.

Mount Logan

Listed Race winner over 12-furlongs, who has also won at this trip. However, beaten off a mark of 95 in a handicap the last time her ran at Haydock.

Restorer

Beat just one of 17 rivals home in his last two runs at Group 3 level, and finished last on his last run in a Listed Race. Headscratcher if he wins.

Spark Plug

Last year’s Cambridgeshire winner won a Listed Race last time, and has every chance on the ratings. Stable also going as well as at any time this season.

Euginio

Handicap winner last time off a mark of 100, but well-beaten on his two tries in Listed Company, and this demands more than he’s shown so far.

Frankuus

Finished over 3-lengths behind Spark Plug at Sandown earlier in the season, and is 2lb worse off. However, he’s 2 from 2 at Haydock, handles a bit of cut in the ground.

Laraaib

Won all three starts impressively so far, one here at Haydock, and could easily take this step up to Group 3 company in his stride. Softer ground an unknown, but has some soft ground lovers in his pedigree.

Larchmont Lad

Group 3 winner as a 2-year-old, but fallen short at Listed Level the last twice. Best runs have also come at Newmarket.

Summary

Autocratic sets the benchmark but, as three-year-olds have the best recent record, the pair to concentrate on could be course winners Frankuus and Laraaib. Laraaib could prove good enough but, as there’s a small doubt about the ground with him, Frankuus looks the each-way value.
