Duke Of York Clipper Logistics Stakes Trends 2021

With no mares or fillies winning the Duke of York Clipper Logistics Stakes in the last ten years, Final Song, Lady In France, and Queen Jo Jo may face a tough task.
Brando, Emaraaty Anna, Nahaarr, Summerghand, and Oxted are all older than four. Oxted can’t be ruled out as the highest-rated horse in the race but last year’s July Cup winner didn’t look at his best on his seasonal debut and he has a tough draw in stall ten. Ventura Rebel is also drawn wider than ideal.
Molatham has looked best at 7-furlongs so far and connections tried him over a mile last time. Starman looked a sprinter of some potential on his first three starts last year but any further softening of the ground would be a worry.
Ground with a bit of cut in it looks ideal for Art Power. His form tailed off on his last three runs of last season, but he has the size and scope to suggest he will peak as a sprinter at the age of four.

Who Will Win The Musidora Stakes 2021?
Quiet Assassin, Snowfall, and Mystery Angel try to make experience count, having had at least five runs each. The latter won on her seasonal debut and boasts the second-highest rating, but it will be disappointing if at least one of her rivals doesn’t improve past here.
Senita represents Gosden and Dettori, but she must put a disappointing seasonal debut behind here. Glenartney has plenty to find on ratings and makes her seasonal debut. Auria steps up in trip and breeders will be watching to see if this daughter of a champion sprinter stays this far.
Teona looked special on her second start on the all-weather but needs to translate that form to turf, so the vote goes to Noon Star. This impeccably bred daughter of Galileo and Midday is bred to be a star at middle distances, and she could have lots more improvement to come.
