Stars come out for Chariot

A top-class line up featuring the likes of Lush Lashes, Darjina and Nahoodh is in prospect for Saturday’s Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket.

Lush Lashes is a triple Group One winner this term and she could bid to add to her haul in this mile event, although trainer Jim Bolger does have an alternative option in Sunday’s Prix de l’Opera at Longchamp.

Darjina has finished second on each of her five starts this term and she could represent Alain de Royer-Dupre, while Mark Johnston’s Nahoodh will be hoping to reverse recent Irish form with Lush Lashes.

Aidan O’Brien has his usual strong hand, with Irish 1000 Guineas and Nassau winner Halfway To Heaven, Listen and You’resothrilling still in the mix.

Other Irish interest comes courtesy of John Oxx’s Arch Swing, Mad About You from Dermot Weld’s yard and the Frances Crowley-trained Cheyenne Star.

Mick Channon can pick from Majestic Roi, Sweet Lilly and Eva’s Request, with James Fanshawe’s Spacious and Sir Michael Stoute’s pair of Heaven Sent and Visit also taking the eye.

The 21-strong list of possibles is completed by Baharah, Barshiba, Harvest Queen, Lady Gloria, Festoso and Royal Confidence.
