European Runners Invade Bahrain International Trophy

Bahrain Trophy

The Bahrain International Trophy on Friday sees a superb field go to post and it is full of British and Irish raiders all trying to land the £500,000 prize.

Leading the way is the Aidan O'Brien trained four year old, who suffered an injury after his win in the Irish Derby and was not seen again since this season, where he has raced four times and struggled in tough company.

Having been tried over staying trips this term, racing in the Irish St Leger and Long Distance Cup on British Champions day, the son of Galileo will now be dropped down to 1m2f for the Bahrain event.

Other runners from Ireland that make up the race include the J A Stack trained Lady Wannabe who heads into the race seeking a hat-trick and gets the ride from the superb Jamie Spencer.

The English raiders on Friday could have a huge say with Andrew Balding bringing over his black type winner Bangkok, whilst David Simock fields veteran Desert Encounter and Mick Channon tries his hand with Certain Lad.

Other big chances for the English contingent come in the way of the Grade One winner for David O'Meara with Lord Glitters and Global Giant for the master trainer John Gosden.

Godolphin have sent a strong team over to Bahrain with most of these horses heading over to Meydan to race during the winter after this event.

Charlie Appleby fields Loxley who has been a winer internationally in the past and he will be joined by Dream Castle for Saeed bin Suroor with the six year old having an outside chance.

Japan will be represented by Diedre who has raced four times this term and she will need to be better than what she has been, especially last time out in the Arc.

The home nation will be looking to keep the trophy in Bahrian and they have three possible chances, with the best horse looking like Port Lions who is unbeaten in his last five events, he will be joined by stablemate Simsir and Coolagh Forest for Haider Ebrahim.
