2021 King George at Ascot: the runners, the odds, the verdict
One of the Flat season's midsummer highlights, Ascot's King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes has witnessed some epic performances over the years. Can Mishriff give the Gosdens another winner following three wins in the last four years with Enable?
Ultra-consistent this term; made all in French Group 1 last time; this is a harder task
Has looked high class in foreign races; record on home soil is less impressive
Trainer:John and Thady Gosden
Outstanding filly last season; won at Royal Ascot on reappearance; massively respected
4 Wonderful Tonight
Well suited by soft/heavy; won the Hardwicke here on seasonal debut; improving
Stayed on strongly to win the Derby at Epsom seven weeks ago; more to offer; big player
6 Lone Eagle
Progressive; clear second in the Irish Derby last time; looks a Group 1 winner in waiting
Love commands the utmost respect butAdayar(nap), in receipt of 8lb, is taken to follow up his emphatic Derby success.
