Bahrain Trophy Stakes Guide

1. Barbados

T - Aidan O'Brien

J - Ryan Moore

One of the market principles here after his fine effort in the Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot, of which he finished just half-a-length down in a bunch finish with Dashing Willoughby.

Sent off a 20/1 shot that day and far better than any of the other Ballydoyle runners, he is much more considered here over a furlong less.

Has winning form on a good-to-firm surface when second in a Listed race at Leopardstown in early June, so appears to act versatile on the going.

Strong form.

2. Boerhan

T - William Haggas

J - James Doyle

Disappointly beaten favourite at Chelmsford on latest start in May, when switched back to the standard surface over 1m2f.

This son of Sea The Stars was racing over less than that on the turf beforehand, when third on the Rowley Mile in the Listed Feilden Stakes.

Has a fair bit to find with a few of these, and climbs up beyond ten furlongs for the first time in his career.

Blinkers added.

3. Eagles By Day

T - Michael Bell

J - Daniel Tudhope

Very much the form pick after his excellent third at 25/1 to Japan in the Group Two King Edward VII Stakes.

Corrected his poor run at Lingfield the start before when well beaten by Anthony Van Dyck in a Derby Trial, and looks back to his best now.

Won at Salisbury earlier in the year to break his maiden tag, and all the pointers are there for another bold show.

4. Nate The Great

T - Archie Watson

J - Hollie Doyle

Good third in that Derby trial at Lingfield, but was much below par in the Queen's Vase over 1m6f at Royal Ascot.

Shaves off a furlong here and the return to a firm surface should see him in with better claims.

Was third here to Norway in the Listed Zetland Stakes, but the form has not really worked out, and others have more convincing profiles.

5. Nayef Road

T - Mark Johnston

J - Silvestre De Sousa

Made most of the running when coming home third at Royal Ascot - finishing just behind Barbados in the Group Two Queen's Vase.

Finished fifth at Epsom, and last but two in the Dante Stakes - which was clearly a step too far but retained excuses given the quality of the field.

Last victory was here on the Rowley Mile back in May, so could be in with a shout given how well his trainer has been firing of late.

6. Ranch Hand

T - Andrew Balding

J - Oisin Murphy

Four lengths behind Nate The Great at Lingfield in the Derby Trial back in May, and has yet to be sighted since.

Hard to know where he ranks with this bunch, given that he has only raced three times in his career - twice at Southwell, and was given an opening mark of 85 - now up to 94.

Could be plenty more to come, but perhaps best watched as his CV looks rather bare.

7. Severance

T - Mick Channon

J - Kerrin McEvoy

Looks outclassed in this field given his outing in the King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot when well behind the front three of Aidan O'Brien's.

Finishing sixth and with the ground quickening all the time, he was not seen to good effect and had to be rousted along from the start to get going.

Trip probably suits, but definitely does not have the best attributes he inherited from his sire Nathaniel.

Against.

8. Spanish Mission

T - David Simcock

J - Jamie Spencer

Just held by Private Secretary at Goodwood in a Listed Race, but form was wiped out when the latter was comfortably beaten by Eagles By Day at Ascot.

Gradually getting the hang of things now and an improved effort would be expected, but looks exposed trip wise given his immediate pedigree.

Something to prove, but looks fancied in the market.

9. Waldstern

T - John Gosden

J - Frankie Dettori

Well bred chestnut who should stay twelve furlongs, but needs to bounce back from his poor comeback at Chester under a month ago.

Began his juvenile campaign promisingly, winning here in August of 2018 before narrowly clipped by Karl Burke's Kadar at Haydock.

Should not be dismissed given his downhill career so far from promising beginnings, as his trainer John Gosden has excellent record in this race.
