Bahrain Trophy Stakes (Group 3) (1) 1m5f – 10.50pm

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 118 125 124 124 129 (Avg 124)

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$4.33 First Eleven, $4.5 Giuseppe Garibaldi, $5 Loxley, $8 Wells Farhh Go, $15 Victory Salute, $17 Berkshire Blue, $17 Caliburn, $17 Global Giant

Analyst’s Verdict

First Eleven looked a Group horse in the making when unlucky not to win the King George V Stakes (Handicap) at Royal Ascot 3 weeks ago and can provide John Gosden with a sixth win in this event. Loxley was impressive when making a winning return here and has more improvement in him, while this represents a drop in class for Giuseppe Garibaldi.

Arqana July Stakes (Group 2) (1) 6f – 11.25pm

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 122 132 128 122 121 (Avg 125)

Betting Forecast

$2.5 Advertise, $3.75 Legends of War, $7 Van Beethoven, $15 Konchek, $17 Dunkerron, $29 Charming Kid, $29 North Wind, $34 Sporting Chance

Analyst’s Verdict

Legends of War’s participation in the Coventry would have made for an even more compelling race, disappointing that he missed it due to a minor infection, but he can build on his huge debut performance to maintain his unbeaten record here at the expense of another highly talented sort in Advertise. Konchek should relish this trip and shouldn’t be completely dismissed.

bet365 Handicap (2) 6f – 12.00am

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$8.5 Tribal Quest, $10 Encrypted, $11 Buridan, $12 Embour, $13 Foxtrot Lady, $13 Jawwaal, $13 Savalas, $19 Gabrial The Saint, $21 Roussel, $21 Staxton, $23 Breathless Times, $23 Kimifive, $26 Stormbringer, $29 Roundhay Park, $29 Tadbir, $41 Desert Doctor, $41 Helvetian, $51 Grand Koonta, $67 Music Society, $67 Tricksy Spirit

Analyst’s Verdict

Several to consider but Jawwaal and Tribal Quest stand out from both a handicapping and potential point of view. The latter isn’t passed over lightly but Jawwaal was arguably unlucky not to prevail in the big York handicap won by Encrypted and, therefore, is potentially well treated off the same mark. Encrypted should again be involved, while the Hannon duo, Buridan and Embour, also merit respect.

Princess of Wales’s Arqana Racing Club Stakes (Group 2) (1) 1½m – 12.35am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 129 130 131 134 132 (Avg 131)

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$3.75 Mirage Dancer, $5 Barsanti, $8 Laraaib, $9 Best Solution, $9 Raa Atoll, $10 Duretto, $10 Muntahaa, $34 Algometer

Analyst’s Verdict

Mirage Dancer wasn’t seen to best effect at Royal Ascot, and given he has the potential to rate higher still, he’s taken to enhance Sir Michael Stoute’s excellent record in this race. Barsanti is a thoroughly likeable sort who should continue to give a good account of himself, while Best Solution will find things a bit easier back in Group 2 company.

British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (2) 6f – 1.10am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 101 98 108 99 94 (Avg 100)

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$5 Lover’s Knot, $6 Handmaiden, $6.5 Poetry, $15 No Way Jose, $15 Wingreen, $15 Yourtimeisnow, $17 Strict Tempo, $19 Ip Dip, $23 Lady Cosette, $26 Antonia Clara, $26 Nostrovia, $29 Sunday Star, $41 Waltzing Belle, $51 Shaffire, $67 Sibirica

Analyst’s Verdict

Handmaiden and Poetry are both predominantly bred for speed and arrive on the back of highly encouraging debuts, so they’re taken against the field here with preference for the first named. Lover’s Knot is another obvious contender and Yourtimeisnow is worth a mention as the pick of the newcomers.

Edmondson Hall Solicitors Sir Henry Cecil Stakes (Listed) (1) 1m – 1.45am

Timeform Rating of previous winners: 126 126 121 131 129 (Avg 127)

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$5 Gabr, $5.5 Emaraaty, $7 Symbolization, $10 Purser, $11 Masaarr, $12 Walk In The Sun, $12 Zaman, $17 Glendevon, $17 White Mocha, $29 Lethal Steps, $51 Naval Intelligence, $51 Tangled

Analyst’s Verdict

Emaraaty proved to be a major disappointment in the Jersey Stakes at Ascot last month, particularly given the huge effort he produced when runner-up at Goodwood previously. On balance he’s well worth another chance and shades the vote. Jim Crowley seemingly prefers Gabr however, and he is highly respected, whilst Symbolization is also expected to feature.

Saeed Suhail Saeed Handicap (2) 5f – 2.20am

Top Rated & Flags

Betting Forecast

$4.5 Leo Minor, $5.5 Shaheen, $7 Arzaak, $8.5 Midsummer Knight, $9 Duke of Firenze, $11 Gracious John, $15 Compas Scoobie, $17 Outrage, $19 Shamshon

Analyst’s Verdict

Its plausible Duke of Firenze is not the force of old (now a 9-y-o) but he’s hard to ignore from this sort of mark, especially with his yard showing better signs in recent days, so he earns a tentative vote. Leo Minor found a jolt of improvement for the return to patient tactics last time and he should go well again along with progressive young sprinter Shaheen.
