Six-year-old is by Storming Home who was first past the post in the 2003 Arlington Million before being disqualified and is trained by Italian born but English based Marco Botti who may be best known in America as the trainer of Gitano Hernando who upset the field in the 2009 Goodwood Stakes at Santa Anita. Jakkalberry was last seen when fifth in the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot in June finishing behind Sea Moon who was second in the Breeders’ Cup Turf last year; Dunaden and Red Cadeaux who finished first and second in the 2011 Melbourne Cup and Aiken who had won his previous six starts including the Grand Prix De Chantilly in his latest. Two starts back Jakkalberry produced perhaps the performance of his life when closing well to finish third behind two of the world’s top turf runners, Cirrus De Aigles and St. Nicholas Abbey, in the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan in March when making his second start of the year. Runner’s best winning performance in nine victories came when defeating a strong field in the 2010 Gran Premio di Milano and on international form he is head and shoulders above this field. Jakkalberry will have no problem with this distance and importantly acts on any going and can be running from off the pace under Colm O’Donoghue.
