SATURDAY 3.40 HARDWICKE STAKES
1. Crystal Ocean 2. Defoe 3. Coronet With Enable out of the meeting, Crystal Ocean shot to favouritism and last year’s winner is the one they all need to beat. He’s shown he’s every bit as good as last year and this should be relatively straightforward before aiming for that elusive Group 1 later in the year. Defoe came into reckoning following his win in the Coronation Cup and courseand-distance success, while Coronet could also sneak a place.
