Phoenix Stakes Guide

1. Monarch Of Egypt

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Ryan Moore

The first runner of the five horse field looks to be the Ballydoyle trainers best chance of his three runners, having ran well in both of his starts to date.

He made his debut back in April in five furlong event at Naas showing a lot of speed that he could stay at that distance but when sent out at the end of June he ran well over six furlongs at the Curragh.

He finished in behind the favourite Siskin that day but he looks a very progress son of American Pharoah and can't be discounted.

2. Mount Fuji

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Seamie Heffernan

What looks to be the third string runner for Aidan O'Brien is Mount Fuji and the two year old having to step up a hell of a lot to be involved here.

He has ran three times in his career winning nicely on debut at Cork over five furlongs, but since then has not been able to cut it at the top level.

He finished near the back of the field in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot with the soft ground not playing to his strengths that day but last time at the Curragh over six furlongs he was poor again which suggests he can be opposed here.

3. Royal Lytham

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Donnacha O'Brien

Royal Lytham is the last of the Ballydoyle runners and is another colt that looks competitive in this Group 1 contest. He has three starts so far, Two of them over in England and one in ireland.

He started his juvenile career at Navan in a 5.5 furlong where he blew the field away in the last 50 yards getting up nicely but showing he needed a small step up in trip.

He went to Royal Ascot and finished a fair seventh in the 17 runner Coventry Stakes which he came out well and has since won again in the Group 2 July Stakes at Newmarket which reads well.

He will have to come on again for that run but looks a serious talent.

4. Siskin

Trainer - Ger Lyons

Jockey - Colin Keane

The favourite for this and rightfully so is the Ger Lyons trained Siskin who is one of the best colts over six furlongs in Ireland being unbeaten on all three starts today.

The Prince Khalid Abdullah owned two-year-old Siskin puts his unbeaten record on the line for the fourth time in his first Group One contest, having won a Group 2 and a Listed race over course and distance.

He could really be something special if continuing his fine progression and he should flourish in this small field already beating the main threat last timeout.

5. Think Big

Trainer - John Joseph Murphy

Jockey - Robbie Colgan

The final colt on show in this black type event is Think Big who although looks highly progressive should be outclassed in this field.

He has ran twice at five furlongs in his career, not getting the hang of things on debut when a weak sixth but has since been in good form with a good second on his first start at six furlongs and then getting off the mark at Down Royal last time out.

They came in weak races though and this race looks to have come slightly to soon.
