After Ballydoyle’s mile Classic contenders have advertised their wares, it is the turn of the operation’s star sprinter on Sunday with Sioux Nation (Scat Daddy) returning in this well-contested affair. Last year’s G1 Phoenix S. and G2 Norfolk S. hero was sixth in the G1 Middle Park S. at Newmarket in September and heads a notable team of three from Ballydoyle alongside the G3 Albany S. winner and G1 Prix Morny and G1 Cheveley Park S.-placed Different League (Fr) (Dabirsim {Fr}) and the Middle Park runner-up Fleet Review (War Front).

“He’s in good form and is just ready to start back,” O’Brien said of Sioux Nation. “The ground won’t be ideal, but this will start him off. Different League is just ready to start and hopefully we’ll learn a lot about her. Ideally, Fleet Review would prefer better ground, but he’s in good form.”

Outside of this high-class trio, Joseph O’Brien saddles a fascinating contender in the Listed Doncaster S. scorer Speak In Colours (GB) (Excelebration {Ire}).
