Undefeated juvenile stars Native Trail and Straight Answer will face off in Saturday’s Darley Dewhurst Stakes (2.55) in Newmarket, but last weekend’s Longchamp hero Angel Bleu will miss the race after not being among a final group of eight.
The Native Trail, trained by Charlie Appleby, will look to improve their claims as Europe’s best youngster this season after three impressive wins, the most recent being a Group 1 victory in the National Stakes at Curragh last month.
The son of Oasis Dream will try to take his perfect four record in Group 1 of the 7f with William Buick, who has been on board for all his starts, once again in the saddle.
Native Trail will face a formidable opponent in Straight Answer, which was completed for the £ 32,000 cost race earlier in the week after its demolition job in a Fairyhouse Listed race the last time around. Colin Keane will ride the colt trained by Ger Lyons.
Dewhurst Stakes Card & Bets
The Bayside Boy, trained by Roger Varian, will also move up to Group 1 for the first time, having won the Champagne Stakes at the Doncaster reunion in St Leger decisively against the highly regarded Reach For The Moon.
Coventry Stakes hero Berkshire Shadow and Go Bears Go, coached by Dave Loughnane, also feature in a high class Dewhurst race.
Kodi Bear’s son hasn’t won since clinching the Railway Stakes at the Curragh in June, but has since raced with a lot of credit in the Phoenix Stakes and Middle Park, and Loughnane believes he could exceed his chances. during his first try on 7f.
He said: “He’s in great condition, we thought the acceleration of the trip would be fine for him, but Native Trail will be really hard to beat and Ger’s horse [Straight Answer] it looks really good too.
“At his current odds, he’s underrated. He’s only been beaten by one length in each of those Group 1s and he’s one of the most consistent horses in training. trip, who knows what will happen. “
One star who will miss the contest is the Blue Angel trained by Ralph Beckett – winner of the Jean-Luc Lagardère Prize on Arc Day last Sunday – despite the coach suggesting the possibility of a quick reappearance.
Strong side for Mullins as he makes an offer for another Cesarewitch
A maximum field of 34 has been declared for the Cesarewitch International Together For Racing (3.35), with Willie Mullins in saddle six as he aims to win the marathon competition for the fourth year in a row.
Her channel is run by the well-supported MC Muldoon, who will be ridden by Ryan Moore, while last year’s heroine Great White Shark will attempt to become just the second multiple race winner after Aaim To Prosper’s victories. in 2010 and 2012.

Great White Shark (gray): offers for consecutive wins in the Cesarewitch
Triumph Hurdle Burning Victory winner, Whiskey Sour, Foveros and Micro Manage round out the Mullins team, while main ante-post fantasies Buzz and Calling The Wind have also been declared, as well as the 2018 winner Withhold.
The two reserves for the 2m2f inheritance handicap are the Vis A Vis formed by Neil Mulholland and the Aleatoric rank outsider.

Charlie Appleby and Godolphin’s 2021 campaign could yet be crowned with Native Trail’s attempt to secure Dewhurst’s success, following an impressive National Stakes victory at Curragh.
Oasis Dream’s son comes from a wonderful family of Juddmonte with a lot of precocity and speed to boot, being of Needleleaf, an unranked full sister of Haydock Sprint Cup scorer African Rose (Fair Eva’s mother) and Helleborine, herself the mother of Coventry Stakes winner Calyx. Needleleaf in turn was purchased for just 60,000 gns at the Tattersalls Mares Sale in December 2015.
Despite his quick pedigree, Native Trail – a Tattersalls Book 1 and Craven Breeze-Up Sale graduate – won all three starts in seven stages, and at the Curragh scampered three and a half lengths of previously undefeated Point Lonsdale.
The completed Straight Answer is another by a speed-oriented sire at Kodiac, although he in turn comes from a half-sister of two Group winners over a mile and a half and a half.
The Juddmonte colt grabbed attention with a single Listed success at Fairyhouse over six stages last time around, but it’s also worth noting that his half-sister has won over a mile and three stages. His sire, though primarily known for his lightning-fast juveniles, also produced older talents such as Caulfield Cup Best Solution winner and German scorer Fox Champion of 2000 Guineas.
Bayside Boy tries to cap off a great week for Ballylinch Stud’s second season sire New Bay, who was in charge of Sun Chariot Stakes heroine Saffron Beach after a narrow Champagne Stakes victory last time around.
Bred by Ballylinch and purchased 200,000 gns in Tattersalls Book 2, the colt is the half-brother to a multiple group winner over distances ranging from 1m1f-1m2½f at Forest Ranger, while training as if a mile should be in his comfort zone next year.
“title =” Go Bears Go: in the mix for the Dewhurst “class =” js-imageLoader “data-at-xn =” https://www.rp-assets.com/images/news/2021/08/24 /97189-medium.jpeg “data-br-n =” https://www.rp-assets.com/images/news/2021/08/24/97189-medium.jpeg “data-br-m =” https : //www.rp-assets.com/images/news/2021/08/24/97189-large.jpeg “data-br-w =” https://www.rp-assets.com/images/news/ 2021/08/24/97189-large.jpeg “data-br-xw =” https://www.rp-assets.com/images/news/2021/08/24/97189-large.jpeg “onclick =” return false; “>
Go Bears Go: in the mix for the Dewhurst
New Bay, a son of Dubawi raised in Juddmonte and the family of Irish Oaks heroine Wemyss Bight, was a high-class performer from a mile to a mile and a half, with a victory in the Prix du Jockey Club completed by classifications in the 2,000 French Guineas and the Arc.
His lead offspring thrived on trips of seven to nine stages, and there is every chance of further improvement from his slightly raced son.
Dubawi Legend, who is, as the name strongly suggests, by Darley’s flagship stallion, is a half-brother to a mile-and-a-half Listed winner at Golden Pass, a daughter of Golden Horn who has also finished second in the Park Hill Stakes over a mile and six stages. Coming from a 1,000 Guineas winner from the United Arab Emirates in Raven’s Pass’s Lovely Pass mare, and a family that includes several model class milers, endurance shouldn’t be a problem.
The winner of the Coventry Stakes, Berkshire Shadow, has just been rejected by the winner of Lagardère Angel Bleu in the Vintage Stakes and could still offer Dark Angel a youthful Group 1 double.
From a mile-winning half-sister and a mile-and-a-half goalscorer Bohemian Dance, Cheveley Park stallion Berkshire Shadow comes from a family that includes Yorkshire Oaks double heroine, Islington .
Go Bears Go, third in the Phoenix Stakes and fourth at Perfect Power in Middle Park, could be suited by stage up to seven stages given he is by a Celebration Mile winner and Dewhurst second to Kodi Bear and on a mile winning Half-sister of Giant’s Causeway to the Prix de l’Opéra heroine Nahrain.
A tough and consistent performer for Amo Racing and David Loughnane, he should not be underestimated in terms of pedigree or performance and could give good value.
