Curragh Race 6 - Keeneland Phoenix Stakes (Group 1)

LITTLE BIG BEAR (4) completed a hat-trick winning by 4.8L the 1250m G3 Anglesey Stakes at this venue. Expected to register a fourth win in five career starts. BRADSELL (3) won by 1.5L the G2 Coventry Stakes over 1200m at Royal Ascot in June. Leading player. BLACKBEARD (2) delivered a 3L success in the G2 Prix Robert Papin at Chantilly. Bold show likely with that form working out well. PERSIAN FORCE (5) was a winner for the third time in four career attempts scoring by 1.5L the 1200m G2 July Stakes at Newmarket. Strong claims.

Resumes off a 42 day let-up. At the latest run 3rd in a small field at this track in the G2 Railway Stakes on June 25 over 1207m, 1.4 len behind Shartash carrying 59.5kg at $23. The race before that won by 0.8 len at Fairyhouse June 10 over 1207m defeating Palace Gardens carrying 58.5kg at $1.80. Needs to improve to trouble the top handful.

Had two starts to date. When well in the market at debut, scored a big 9 len win at York May 21 over 1207m defeating Northcliff with 59.5kg at $3.30. Last start won by 1.5 len at Ascot G2 Coventry Stakes June 14 over 1207m defeating Persian Force carrying 58.5kg at $9. Must be respected.

On a three run winning streak. Most recently favourite; won by 5 len at this track G3 Anglesey Stakes July 16 over 1265m defeating Yosemite Valley carrying 59.5kg at $1.40. The run before that favourite; won by a long-neck at Ascot LR Windsor Castle Stakes June 15 over 1006m defeating Rocket Rodney with 59.5kg at $2.20. Rates highly. Big chance.
