2021 Sun Chariot Stakes Runners

Alcohol Free, Mother Earth and Snow Lantern have been trading blows all season. Mother Earth beat Alcohol Free in the 1000 Guineas, before Andrew Balding's filly defeated Snow Lantern and Mother Earth in the Coronation Stakes. 

It was then Snow Lantern's turn to get the better of her rivals, beating both a late charge to win the Falmouth Stakes, before Alcohol Free reversed that form again in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.

All three travel to Newmarket having suffered defeat on their most recent runs. Snow Lantern couldn't finish any better than fourth behind Baaeed in the Prix du Moulin. Alcohol Free wasn't quite as effective over ten furlongs in the Juddmonte International and Mother Earth endured a luckless passage when third behind No Speak Alexander in the Matron.

If all three are on top of their game, then they could fight out the finish once again. If I had to choose, I'd probably side with Alcohol Free, who's run well on the Rowley Mile before and easing in the ground would be a positive for Andrew Balding's filly.

While they are clearly the three stand-out contenders, all three have endured long, hard seasons, so I'm going to side away from the market leaders and have an each-way punt in this historic race.

2021 Sun Chariot Stakes Tips

The one who appeals to me most is LAVENDER'S BLUE, who snatched victory away from Benbatl - who boosted that form by winning the Joel Stakes last week - to claim a shock win in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood last time out. 

Rob Hornby's mount was well-beaten in the Falmouth Stakes, but she was always going to be playing catch-up from stall one and never really got involved in the right. Prior to that, Lavender's Blue had impressed this season, winning a Listed race at Kempton while also finishing a very close third behind Lady Bowthorpe and Queen Power in the Dahlia Stakes staged here on the Rowley Mile.

Amanda Perrett's star finished next to last when this race was run on heavy ground last year, but was much more competitive when fourth behind Billesdon Brook in the 2019 renewal of the Sun Chariot.

Verdict

Given she goes well on this track and returns to Newmarket on the back of an impressive victory, I think Lavender's Blue is a solid each-way option at 14/1.
