With Ten To Follow just opening, we take a look at five must-have Group horses.
Trained by William Haggas
This unbeaten son of Sea The Stars has never put a foot out of place so far in his career. With three Group One’s already under his belt, can he ever be stopped? Although he was breathtaking when returning this season in the Group One Lockinge Stakes, he still looks like he can improve.
All being well, next up for Haggas’ superstar will be the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, but his trainer has hinted he may look to step him up in trip in due course. He’s been the horse to beat every race he’s featured in and that doesn’t look like it’ll change any time soon.
Trained by Charlie Appleby
After enjoying Group success last season, he wasted no time in getting his first taste of Group One success in his season reappearance in April, Coroebus has to be one added to the shortlist. He beat his heavily backed stable companion Native Trail in the 2000 Guineas and now holds multiple entries for future Group One events.
With an in-form trainer in Charlie Appleby, the sky's the limit for this Dubawi three year old and it shouldn’t be long until he adds another Group race to his tally.
Trained by Aidan O'Brien
This Galileo filly is yet to enjoy Group success, however she’s hit the bar twice in her two Group One starts. She currently holds entries in six Group One races this season and based on her form so far in her career, it’s only a matter of time before she puts her name up in lights and bags herself a Group winning title.
Trained by John & Thady Gosden
Mishriff has enjoyed plenty of success over the past few years including three Group One wins. His most recent Group One success came in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York in August 2021, however he’s been a little disappointing since.
Although he’s not been performing to his best as of late, he currently holds three entries this season, all three being in Group One races and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if he could pick up more Group victories this season.
Trained by George Boughey
The 1000 Guineas winner has been a superstar for George Boughey so far this season and it looks as though that could continue. Already a Group One and Group Three winner this season, she headed to France for her most recent run where she placed.
Looking ahead, all being well, it looks as though Royal Ascot is next on the cards where she could add a second Group One to her list.
