SATURDAY 3.40 HARDWICKE STAKES
1. Crystal Ocean 2. Ghaiyyath 3. Mirage Dancer He could easily be bound for the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, but if connections decide to take this route, last year’s winner Crystal Ocean would be banker material. He’s unlucky not to be a Group 1 winner by now and this should tee him up nicely for the King George later in the year. In his absence, Ghaiyyath would be high on the shortlist on his first try at 1m4f. He could take some pegging back.
