John Gosden ready to step up Without Parole

Trainer John Gosden has confirmed he plans to send Without Parole over 10 furlongs this season after a disappointing end to the 2018 campaign.

The four-year-old looks set to step up in trip despite winning last year’s St James’s Palace Stakes.

The bay colt last won in June 2018 at Ascot but has struggled to finish in the places of late. He was fifth to Almond Eye on the Dubai Turf at Meydan last month in what was just his second run over a trip further than a mile.

Gosden was pleased with his performance and is now confident his stable star will improve due to the increased trip.

“He is in good form – I think he will go for something like the Brigadier Gerard at the end of May,” said Gosden.

“I think it all happened a bit quick for him in Dubai – and I think he will be better over a mile and a quarter. He ran well in Dubai, though, and he has come out of that race in great order – which is the main thing.”

Grey mare Coronet is also back in training ahead of another busy summer. She is set to run at the Guineas meeting before Gosden tries to win a Group One with the five-year-old.

He added: “She is in good form. We probably won’t go for the Ganay and we will probably run her in the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket at the Guineas meeting.

“The darling girl needs to win her Group One. She is a lovely filly and is always there or thereabouts.”
