SATURDAY 3.40 HARDWICKE STAKES
1. Mirage Dancer 2. Coronet 3. Laraaib Last year’s winner Crystal Ocean will be tough to beat if this is his target, but such is his ability connections should have a Group 1 in mind and Sir Michael Stoute has a strong alternative in Mirage Dancer. Having kept on for fifth in last year’s 1m2f Wolferton, he appreciated the step up to 1m4f when a comfortable Group 3 winner at Goodwood in August and is the type to progress further this term. Coronet has the form to have a big say.
