Railway Stakes Guide

1. Fort Myers

T - Aidan O'Brien

J - tbc

The first of two Ballydoyle runners, headed by Fort Myers who finished a decent fourth to stablemate Arizona in the Coventry - the latter who misses this out.

Strong form fought out from the market credentials, and not a bad run having won his maiden at Dundalk just in April and finished short-head second on first British and turf start at Newbury.

Late on the scene, but should be amongst the principles.

2. Monarch Of Egypt

T - Aidan O'Brien

J - tbc

Ante-post favourite for the Coventry but went onto miss the royal meeting.

Just the one start for the son of American Pharaoh, where he absolutely bolted up at Naas on debut.

Certainly more to come, and dropped into Group Two company for just his second appearance.

Exciting prospect.

3. Real Force

T - Gerard O'Leary

J - N G McCullagh

May struggle to contend with the front pair on the basis of his two most recent starts at Leopardstown and at Naas.

Having removed his maiden tag on his racecourse debut, he was last four behind Pistoletto in May and looked green at the start, before finishing the same position of seven behind Ger Lyons One Last Look.

Standard form and this looks difficult, but small fields offer potential surprises to individuals like this.

4. Romero

T - Kevin Ryan

J - Kevin Stott

Kevin Ryan brings over the lightly raced Romero, who won so-stylishly on debut at Doncaster back in May.

Steps up to six furlongs on just his second start, but has plenty more to offer going forward.

Likeable character, and should be on the premises from stall one.

5. Siskin

T - G M Lyons

J - Colin Keane

Khalid Abdullah's exciting two-year-old Siskin puts his unbeaten record on the line in this first time Group Two, having won smartly in Listed company last time out at this track.

Could really be something special if continuing his fine progression, and in a talented field, he would still be expected to come through this.

Major claims, and related to plenty of high-profile winners.

When The Fun Stops. Stop.
