Stephen Harris’ St James’s Palace Stakes Preview

A top quality Group 1 run over seven furlongs 213 yards, which is confined to 3-y-o colts only chasing over £538,000 in prize money. Traditionally this has been the next stepping stone after the English and Irish 2000 Guineas, but the 2020 renewal will obviously have a very different shape (with fitness first time out likely to be a key factor for most of the field).

St Jame’s Palace Stakes Tips 2020

Wichita, St Jame’s Stakes Tip #1

Aidan O’Brien’s unexposed 3-y-o narrowly failed to land a wholesale gamble in the 2000 Guineas on his seasonal reappareance, picked off late by the strong finishing Kemeko, and has far more scope to progress this summer than any of these rivals.

Palace Pier, St Jame’s Stakes Tip #2

John Gosden’s progressive performer bypassed the Guineas to take a handicap in style on his return (had reportedly been working lazily at home and not showing much), coming with a storming run from rear to win impressively. He might just be a stuffy type who will improve race to race as his stamina is drawn out, and fully merits a step up in class to Group company.
