Hungerford Stakes Entries: Top notch twelve entered for Newbury Group 2 event

Newbury will play host to the Hungerford Stakes on Saturday
Newbury will play host to the Hungerford Stakes on Saturday

A maximum of 12 horses will line up in Saturday's Group 2 Hungerford Stakes at Newbury, which will be contested over seven furlongs, and we take a look at the entries for the feature race of the weekend here...

William Haggas trained Sacred to victory in this race 12 months ago, and the superstar handler, who will be looking forward to saddle Baaeed in next week's Juddmonte International Stakes at York, will attempt to win back-to-back renewals of the Hungerford Stakes on Saturday and will unleash Tiber Flow. A fine winner of the Listed Carnarvon Stakes at Newbury two starts ago, the son of Caravaggio failed to build on that effort when ninth in the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, but a drop back in grade here could see him land a significant blow.

Beaten half-a-length by Sandrine in the Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, the Charlie Hills-trained Pogo will look to use that third placed finish as a stepping stone to Group 2 glory here, and the hugely consistent six-year-old is sure to attract significant support in the betting, as the proven class act is sure to put up a decent bid for glory.

A sparkling winner of the Group 2 Summer Mile at Ascot two starts ago, Richard Hannon's Chindit had the unenviable task of trying to down the aforementioned Baaeed in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood last time out, but he could only finish sixth in that Group 1 event. Dropping back to Group 1 company here, Hannon's classy performer will have the burden of giving weight to all his rivals here, but he is one of the class acts of the race. Hannon could also Happy Romance, who was last seen finishing third in Hackwood Stakes at Newbury.

The two last-time out winners potentially taking their place in the field are the Tom Dascombe-trained Misty Grey, who was victorious at Chelmsford last time out, while the Henry Candy-trained Run To Freedom won a three-runner race at Salisbury last time out, so this sure to be a tougher assignment for that form performer.

A winner of the Group 3 Abernant Stakes earlier in the season, Chris Wall's Double Or Bubble failed to get his head in front in the July Cup at Newmarket on his last start, but he could be looking to bounce back to winning ways here, while the Eve Johnson Houghton-trained Jumby was down the field in the Victoria Cup at Ascot, and could now step up to Pattern company here.

Last seen finishing an excellent third in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot, Roger Varian's Dubai Poet will attempt to step up on that effort and take on the older generation here and is a fascinating entry, as he looks to propel into the big time, while Andrew Balding's Happy Power will look to improve on a fourth placed finish in the Lennox Stakes last time out.

Completing the 12-strong entry list are Ed Walker's Primo Bacio and Clive Cox's Wings Of War, who both have some smart form on their CVs and both should add yet more depth to a cracking renewal of the Hungerford Stakes, which is the feature race on a decent card at Newbury.
