2021 FESTIVAL STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Prime Candidate and Bandersnatch to vie for the lead, pressured by Ellsberg and Pandano. ELLSBERG (10) was heavily backed in the Golden Eagle last start and while failing to feature he wasn't beaten far. Rates well down in the weights and notably gets the blinkers back on. Drawn to land a lovely spot and should prove hard to beat.

BRUTALITY (13) is another who gets the blinkers back on following a fair effort last start when closing off well late. At his top third up and looms as a major threat. ORDER AGAIN (3) has won 4/5 attempts over this distance range and a key booking with McDonald aboard. Rates highly on best form and has to be included in the main hopes, while ART CADEAU (8) is clearly worth another chance.
