King George Qatar Stakes Guide

1. Battaash

Trainer - Charles Hills

Jockey - Jim Crowley

This race could be named after this five year old after winning it the last two years and he truly does look a class above the rest running to a solid standard in both races this season.

He started his campaign off at Haydock in the Temple Stakes where he cruised to victory against some of his old rivals and it set him up to try and get revenge in the King's Stands Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Unfortunately for him he was outclassed again by Blue Point who was not for passing but he still ran a superb race and this contest looks there for the taking.

2. Copper Knight

Trainer - Tim Easterby

Jockey - David Allan

This five year old could enter the places if running a career best and this season has ran to a fair standard in lesser sprint contests with figures of 4213021.

His latest win came in a good Listed race at York beating some proven sprinters and if coming out of that well he could be in the mix.

Might be over priced in the market.

3. El Astronaute

Trainer - John Quinn

Jockey - Jason Hart

This gelding is another one that has definite place claims being one of the most consistent sprinters in the division but never having enough to compete with the Group 1 calibre horses.

His last three runs over in Ireland have seen him win twice at the Curragh and Cork, taking the big fielded Rockingham Handicap and his last run was a smart second in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes behind an unbeaten four year old.

Holds very strong form claims for the places and looks the biggest threat to the favourite.

4. Judicial

Trainer - Julie Camacho

Jockey - P J McDonald

A well known gelding who won a two runner race last time out that should not be looked into to strongly and before that finished last in the King's Stands Stakes at Royal Ascot.

His better days look to be behind him now but if he can find his old Group 3 winning form he could maybe get in the frame but it looks unlikely on what he's done this season.

5. Ornate

Trainer - David C Griffiths

Jockey - Phil Dennis

Ornate has been running well this year with three wins to his name with his best coming at Epsom in the Investec Dash where he saw off 19 other runners.

This is a huge step up for the gelding who looks like he will be outclassed and on that basis can be opposed in this one.

6. Houtzen

Trained - Martyn Meade

Jockey - Ryan Moore

Houtzen is having his first run for this new stable being relocated in Britain from his previous home of Australia and if running to best of his ability can't be overlooked for a place.

He was blamed for Battaash committing to soon at Royal Ascot and he could only finish eighth that day but now going for a new yard and Ryan Moore on board he could be interesting.

7. Intense Romance

Trainer - Michael Dods

Jockey - Ben Curtis

Intense Romance is the 66/1 outsider in the contest and off the back of his two runs this season you can see why, finishing sixth in both his races not threatening to go and win the race at all.

At the back end of last season he was in thriving form landing a hat-trick including two Listed wins at Haydock and Ascot and will need to find that form to have any chance of being up there.

8. Rebecca Rocks

Trainer - Henry Candy

Jockey - Harry Bentley

Had first run for a year at Ayr in June and got off the mark in good style in a nice Listed race and will be much better today for that run.

Will need a career best to go close here like many of the runners but will be fresh and was a course and distance winner back here in 2017, meaning she handles the track well.

9. Rumble Inthejungle

Trainer - Richard Spencer

Jockey - Frankie Dettori

The Richard Spencer trained three year old could enter the frame off the back of his exploits as a juvenile but this season he has been below par.

As a two year old he landed a Group 3 contest at this meeting over course and distance and this will be his first race back here since then.

10. Big Brothers Pride

Trainer - F Rohaut

Jockey - Oisin Murphy

This filly has to be respected off the back of her Group 3 win over in France at the start of the season and she has been saved since then for this contest.

The three year old cost €400,000 as a yearling and with a big reputation coming over from France and being that expensive she has the making of a smart sprinter and is one to watch.
