    Day Four Entries for Royal Ascot: The Exciting Line-up

    Coronation Stakes: Mawj and Tahiyra in the Running for Rematch

    The Coronation Stakes is just around the corner, and all eyes are on which fillies will stand their ground. Nine fillies remain in contention, including Saeed bin Suroor’s Mawj and Tahiyra – both of whom could be headed for a Royal Ascot rematch.

    Fillies Stand Their Ground

    Mawj was a crowd favorite at Newmarket when she won the coveted title of 1000 Guineas. Her trainer, Saeed bin Suroor has had quite an impressive career with many successful days behind him. Tahiyra gave her a tough fight but fell short by half-length under Oisin Murphy. However, this form was well advertised when runner-up Dermot Weld lifted the Irish equivalent at Curragh. Aidan O’Brien still has Breeders’ Cup winner Meditate to contend with after finishing sixth at Newmarket followed immediately by Tahiyra who finished fifth at Curragh. Jackie Oh hails from Ballydoyle while Mammas Girl trained under Richard Hannon’s watchful eye. Queen For You falls under John and Thady Gosden’s tutelage while Ralph Beckett’s Remarquee is also set to compete. Sounds Of Heaven from Jessica Harrington’s stable along with Jim Bolger’s Comhra round up the list of contenders.

    Commonwealth Cup

    O’Brien’s Little Big Bear is the star attraction amongst the 16 horses that remain in contention for the Commonwealth Cup. He recently won at Haydock and showed that he is set to be a real force over sprinting trips after returning to action over a mile in the 2000 Guineas.

    King Edward VII Stakes

    The King Of Steel, trained by Roger Varian, has all eyes on him as he prepares to compete against his rivals. The horse had finished second only to Auguste Rodin at Derby. Frankie Dettori and John Gosden’s Arrest were favorites at Epsom but failed to handle track conditions on fast ground, finishing down the field in tenth place. Dubai Mile (ninth), Adelaide River (eighth), Artistic Star (seventh), Military Order (14th) and San Antonio (11th) also ran at Epsom and could return next week.

    All these contenders are top-class fillies who will give their best shot during Coronation Stakes. It remains anyone’s game until race day arrives!
