NEWS: Laurens leads 14 contenders for Lockinge honours
on 16 May 2019
14 are declared for the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury on Saturday

Laurens is one of 14 declarations for Saturday’s Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury.

Karl Burke’s five-time Group 1 winner will be making her seasonal debut as she starts her four-year-old career after a stellar season last year.

Andrew Balding’s Beat The Bank will have his followers after a victory on his comeback at Sandown in Group 2 company, when he had the reopposing Sharja Bridge back in second.

Aidan O’Brien won the race last year with a filly in Rhododendron and this year will attempt to repeat the feat with I Can Fly. The Ballydoyle handler also runs former Andre Fabre inmate Le Brivido, who is the mount of Ryan Moore.

A further Irish-trained runner is Ken Condon’s Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Romanised.

Eve Johnson Houghton’s Royal Ascot hero Accidental Agent will aim to get back to winning ways after failing to reproduce his Queen Anne win in two subsequent starts.

Another Ascot winner was John Gosden’s Without Parole who took the St James’s Palace Stakes, but he is another who has failed to run up to the same level of form since.

David O’Meara’s Lord Glitters rarely runs a bad race and went close behind Almond Eye in Dubai when he was last seen.

Mustashry, Mythical Magic, Ostillo, Sir Dancealot and last season’s 1000 Guineas winner Billesdon Brook all take their chances.
