Gosden hoping Beatboxer has the skills to lay down a win in Royal Lodge

Beatboxer: bids to stay unbeaten in the Royal Lodge
1 of 1

Two of the last three winners of the Royal Lodge have been housed at John Gosden's Clarehaven Stables and the betting suggests that trend could continue again with the unbeaten Beatboxer representing the yard.

Like last year's winner Roaring Lion, Beatboxer has an identical profile at this stage of his career, coming into the race with a perfect record courtesy of victories at Sandown and Haydock.

Gosden would have preferred to give the son of Scat Daddy another outing but circumstances dictated otherwise.

The trainer said: "He missed an engagement at Haydock when it went heavy and I would have liked to have got another race into him before this but there wasn't anywhere else to go. He's been in good form at home and it looks a nice race for him."

Royal Lodge card and betting

It is not often that Aidan O'Brien's runners come off second best, but for the last three years in this race the trainer has been forced to settle for the runner-up position.

O'Brien has three chances to go one better this year, with Cape Of Good Hope the best option according to the market.

A winner at Tipperary on his third start, the colt's last visit to Newmarket was in July, when second to Quorto in the Superlative Stakes. That form has been well advertised with Quorto going on to win the Group 1 National Stakes at the Curragh over seven furlongs.

O'Brien said: "Cape Of Good Hope has had a break since the Superlative Stakes in July. He's in good form and we think the step up to a mile will suit him."

Mohawk was seven and a half lengths behind Quorto in the National Stakes when finishing fourth, and like Cape Of Good Hope, O'Brien expects the additional furlong to suit.

The trainer added: "We also think that going up in trip will suit Mohawk, while we know Sydney Opera House stays the distance having won and been placed over the trip."

An extra furlong should play to the strengths of Arthur Kitt, who lost his unbeaten record in the Solario Stakes when finding the exciting Too Darn Hot too much to handle.

That was still a fine effort, and the Tom Dascombe-trained Chesham winner sets a good standard, coming out on top of official ratings with a mark of 107.

Dascombe said: "We chose this race because he wouldn’t want soft ground and because I think he'll be ideally suited to stepping up in trip and running over this straight mile. The further he goes the better he will go – I think he'll be a mile-and-a-half horse next year."

The most unexposed runner in the field is Kadar, who showed why he is well-regarded by trainer Karl Burke when making a winning start in a Haydock novice earlier this month.

It's a big rise in class for the colt, but Burke is excited by his potential and said: "I’m very happy with him since Haydock. I haven’t over worked him since then but I’m pleased with him.

"It's always a concern stepping up in class like this but he's a high-class colt who we think a lot of; this is the type of horse we think he can be."
