Sporting Life Preview

Equilateral has been all the rage for this since slaughtering a subsequent dual winner in a novice event at Doncaster when conceding 12lb. He could be anything and it would be no surprise to see him in the firing-line, though he’s drawn low and much of the action has been down the centre of the track this week. Sioux Nation beat Fleet Review, Speak In Colours and Now You're Talking when justifying favouritism in a Group 3 at Naas last month. Main Desire improved again when completing his hat-trick in a Listed race at York and Eqtidaar finished ahead of a couple these when fourth at Newbury, though looks held on an earlier form here. Sands Of Mali won a Group 3 at Chantilly on his reappearance and then edged out INVINCIBLE ARMY in the Group 2 Sandy Lane at Haydock when Emblazoned finished third. But the runner-up can finally get the better of Richard Fahey’s colt today given the latter may get isolated up against the stands’ rail. James Tate’s charge won the Pavilion Stakes here in May which produced the second and third in last year’s race. Cardsharp got back on track at Salisbury but has plenty to find on earlier form and Heartache may benefit from a drop back to 5f.

Oddschecker Verdict

Charles Hills took the first ever running of this contest with Muhaarar in 2015 and looks to have the chance to become the first dual winner of this Group 1 event with his Prince Khalid Abdullah speedball EQUILATERAL, who relished encountering fast ground for the first time when routing the opposition by eight lengths at Doncaster. Leading Australian jockey James McDonald is in the saddle for what looks a huge step up in class, but the form of that Doncaster run has been franked by the runner-up subsequently winning twice and the son of Equiano appears a top level winner in waiting. Sioux Nation and Heartache were both winners at the Royal meeting last season and have to be respected, with the former looking strong at the distance when taking a Naas Group 3 last time. Sands Of Mali is unbeaten at three having scored in both a Chantilly Group 3 and the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes this term, and it would be no surprise to see him confirm Haydock form over Invincible Army and Emblazoned. Main Desire returned from 363 days off to get the better of Hey Jonesy and Roussel in the Westow Stakes at York and Michael Bell's filly could run well at bigger odds, providing the dreaded bounce factor doesn't rear its head.

Prediction: 1st Equilateral, 2nd Sioux Nation, 3rd Sands Of Mali
