Darjina targeting Sun gold

Darjina bids to end a frustrating run of seconds in Saturday’s Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket.

Alain de Royer-Dupre’s filly has finished runner-up on all five occasions she has faced the starter this season, all at Group One level.

Mark Johnston’s Falmouth Stakes winner Nahoodh will look to atone for her near-miss in the Matron Stakes behind Lush Lashes, who is absent from the list of 11 declarations and may take up her option in the Prix de l’Opera instead.

Aidan O’Brien relies on last year’s Fillies’ Mile winner Listen and this year’s Irish Guineas heroine Halfway To Heaven.

James Fanshawe’s Spacious and Sir Michael Stoute’s Heaven Sent will represent Cheveley Park Stud, who won the race in 2005 with Peeress, while the latter trainer also runs Visit.

Barshiba, Festoso, Harvest Queen, and Eva’s Request complete the field.
