One of the feature races of the day is the St James’s Palace Stakes.

It plays host to the English, Irish and French 2000 Guineas winners.

I’m chancing that the Irish winner, ROSALLION, can gain revenge for his English Guineas runner-up spot behind Notable Speech.

Notable Speech had the benefit of three runs this season, whereas this now duel Group 1 winner was having his seasonal run in the race.

The selection hit the front soon enough, and was picked off late by the winner, but stayed on well and stretching the field out. 

The form of the race is working over very well, including the sixth winning and Grade 2 and the ninth, City Of Troy, winning the Derby.

Rosallion is an Ascot winner, and having landed the Irish Guineas by using his turn of foot, hopefully he can stay on strongly to pick these off.

Nudged up just two pound after his eye-catching Chester Cup third, ZANNDABAD can gain revenge over this longer trip.

He was 12th of 16 when at the furlong pole when the race began.

He was still 10th at the furlong pole when entering the closing stages of the race, having had to wait for a gap, he flew home to snatch third at the line.

He went down as an unlucky loser in my opinion, with the winner having first run and better positioned.

He was listed class in France, stays well over hurdles, including when runner-up at this course over two-mile-three-and -a-half.

He should be staying on well under top pilot William Buick.

I’m happy to take two darts in this at the prices, with NUSRET also primed to run a big race.

He’s been threatening to do so in a big race of this nature, and with the step up in trip and quicker ground likely to be in his favour, he be another play in this competitive race.

I think the overpriced one could be SYMBOL OF HONOUR, he’s been shunted for the ride by stable jockey William Buick, which may mean he’s overlooked.

It’s a tough race to work out, a lot with little experience, but he was all at sea on debut behind a few of these when sent off favourite.

He cost 600,000gns by Havana Grey, and from a good pedigree.

And, second time up showed his potential, recording a fast time over this trip on good to firm ground.

With conditions likely to be quick, he may have a stall advantage in 20 if there is a track bias, and he can put that experience to good use under top French jockey Mickael Barzalona.
