The 2020 Juddmonte International Stakes is the highlight of the first day of the 2020 Yorkshire Ebor Festival which starts on Wednesday 19 August. This Group 1 takes place over 1 mile 2 furlongs and 56 yards and has attracted an exciting field of six runners.
Rose Of Kildare looks the weakest of the sextet but it’s only five years since another 3-year-old filly Arabian Queen pulled off a shock win in the race. The Mark Johnston-trained fill also impressed when winning over course and distance last time, seemingly relishing the step-up in trip for the first time. She takes on much better rivals this time, but it would be no surprise if she outran her odds.
Aspetar is another horse that won over course and distance last time and, if you take the form at face value, he must have a decent chance. He had previous course and distance winners Elarqam and Telecaster trailing in his wake, but the gut-feeling is he may have been flattered in a race where too many good horses didn’t seem to run anywhere near their best form.
Ghayyaith looks sure to be a warm favourite after beating Enable last time. But John Gosden’s star filly wasn’t given a hard race on her seasonal debut, while last year’s winner of this race Japan was back in third but hasn’t been at his best so far this season. A win for Ghaiyyath would be no surprise but, at the odds, he looks worth taking on with the possibility that Rose Of Kildare will challenge him for the early lead on a course he’s not proven at.
Kameko must be respected as a 2,000 Guineas winner and, after finishing fourth in the Derby, he should stay 10-furlongs. But connections aren’t sure what his best trip is and he’s taking on 10-furlong specialists.
Magical finished second in the Yorkshire Oaks last season but is better at 10-furlongs and is another with a decent chance. But she also likes to race prominently, and the leaders could tire each other out
Lord North is our Juddmonte Internationals Stakes tip, as he will be ridden to produce his trademark last burst of speed, which could be the deciding factor if the prominent racers get the fractions wrong. John Gosden also plundered two of France’s biggest races last weekend and enjoyed a strike-rate of 50% last week.
