With plenty of rapidly improving and unexposed types, this year’s renewal of the St James’s Palace looks to be fascinating. The ante-post favourite is John Gosden’s Without Parole, with this son of Frankel costing a staggering 650,000gns as a yearling. With such a smart pedigree, it is no surprise that he is currently three from three, improving on two novice wins when winning a Listed contest at Sandown last month. Although the winning margin looks far from impressive, he only needed to be pushed out to success, with Frankie Dettori not going for everything that day. He hated the ground too, so the effort can be upgraded, with connections adamant he will come into his own on true summer ground. With the sky the limit for this scopey individual, he’s one to take very seriously.

Sent off 50/1 for the 2000 Guineas on his latest start, Tip Two Win was perhaps the surprise of the race, coming home to finish second. He was thrashed by Elarqam in the Tattersalls Stakes as a two-year-old but has improved with every run since then. He’s a lovely looking horse who displays a very willing attitude, staying the mile extremely well. He showed a nice turn of foot to move from the back of the Guineas pack to chase the eventual winner, with that effort looking far from a fluke given the horses in behind. With such a progressive profile, he has to be considered a leading contender, though there is a small question mark on whether he’ll relish rattling fast ground.

Aidan O’Brien once again has a strong hand in the contest, with the first horse we’ll be analysing being Gustav Klimt. Few will forget his Group 2 Superlative Stakes win at Newmarket last season, as he produced a frightening turn of foot to blast through his rivals late on after being badly hampered crucial stage. With that effort in mind, his efforts since have been a shade disappointing, sixth in the 2000 Guineas two starts ago. He was well backed that day but had no answers for the leaders once they swept by, including Tip Two Win. His stamina for the mile is still a niggling concern after his latest third in the Irish 2000 Guineas, dropping away from the front two inside the final furlong. On his best form, he certainly has a chance, but he does have some question marks to answer.

With plenty of runs under his belt, U S Navy Flag can certainly be forgiven the experience edge over his rivals. He was a rapid improver towards the end of a very busy two-year-old season, twice a winner at Group 1 level. He won both the Middle Park and Dewhurst at Newmarket, but hasn’t gone forward from those efforts since returning this year over the mile distance. He was back to a good level of form with a second in the Irish 2000 Guineas, but it was below the peak of his two-year-old form. He’s clearly very capable at his best, but like his aforementioned stablemate, stamina for the mile is a contentious issue at present.

He will also need to reverse form with his Irish 2000 Guineas conquerer Romanised, who left behind a lacklustre return effort when scoring readily at the Curragh last month. That effort left all his previous form behind, including his two-year-old efforts, so he’s clearly trained on in a big way over the winter. That run looked to be no fluke and he clearly relished his first attempt at the mile distance, seeing it out extremely strongly. He’s completely unexposed at this trip and may yet have more to offer, with the likely firmer ground another big plus point for this son of Holy Roman Emporer. He’s an obvious contender if backing up that latest start and has to be considered.
