Bahrain Turf Series Hailed At Home And Away

After two months and ten races, the curtain came down on the inaugural Bahrain Turf Series on Friday, with the results of the final two contests having both international and local appeal. Britain's champion trainer Charlie Appleby fielded his first runners of the series in the seven-furlong Al Sakhir Cup and duly landed the spoils with Silent Film (GB) (New Approach {GB}), who rallied under a strong drive from James Doyle to win by a head from Shebil Aljazira (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}). The 4-year-old winner was landing his...

Lady Bowthorpe to Skip Sun Chariot in Favour of Champions Day

Group 1 winner Lady Bowthorpe (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) will not start in the G1 Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot S. at Newmarket on Oct. 2, and will instead be pointed at the Oct. 16 QIPCO British Champions Day. Trained by William Jarvis for Emma Banks, the 5-year-old mare won the G1 Nassau S. in late July, but was only seventh in the G1 Prix Jean Romanet on Aug. 22. Jarvis is pointing Lady Bowthorpe to either the one mile G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. or the 10-furlong G1 QIPCO Champion...

Sun Chariot Likely For Lady Bowthorpe

Group 1 winner Lady Bowthorpe (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) will likely make her next start in the G1 Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot S. on Oct. 2. Trainer William Jarvis prefers that Newmarket option, with the G1 Prix de l'Opera back in France on Oct. 3 no longer under consideration. Later targets on the calendar include the G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. or G1 Champion S. on Oct. 16 for the 5-year-old mare. In her most recent start, the G1 Nassau S. heroine was seventh of eight in the G1 Prix...

Targets Aplenty For Lady Bowthorpe

Fresh and well after her maiden Group 1 victory in the Nassau S. at the Qatar Goodwood Festival on Thursday, William Jarvis trainee Lady Bowthorpe (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) is eyeing a pair of top flight races in France. The first target for the 5-year-old mare is the G1 Prix Jean Romanet on Aug. 22, and, if the bay continues to thrive, the G1 Prix de l'Opera on Arc day would come next. "I haven't been back [to the yard] myself, but I've had reports that everything is good with her...

Nathaniel's Lady Bowthorpe Powers To Nassau Glory

Stopping the 3-year-old momentum in Thursday's G1 Qatar Nassau S. at Goodwood, Emma Banks's Lady Bowthorpe (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) swooped to conquer to end trainer William Jarvis's 27-year wait for another top-level winner. Unlucky when fourth in the G1 Falmouth S. over a mile at Newmarket last time July 9, the 10-3 shot raced with only the 9-4 joint-favourite Audarya (Fr) (Wootton Bassett {GB}) behind early as the other market-leader Joan of Arc (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) was sent on by Ryan Moore. Delivered wide of that long-time leader and Zeyaadah...

Goodwood Target Undecided For Lady Bowthorpe

William Jarvis is to decide between Group 1 targets for stable star Lady Bowthorpe (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) at Goodwood next week with the Qatar Nassau S. and Qatar Sussex S. both under consideration.  The 5-year-old mare, owned by Emma Banks, started her season with victory in the G2 Dahlia S. at Newmarket and was then runner-up to Palace Pier (GB) (Kingman {GB}) in the G1 Lockinge S. A poor blood test has ruled Palace Pier out of the Sussex S., bringing the mile contest and a clash with top 3-year-old...

Falmouth Next For Lady Bowthorpe

The July 9 G1 Falmouth S. is the next target for G1 Lockinge S. runner-up Lady Bowthorpe (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}). A colourbearer for music agent Emma Banks, the William Jarvis trainee captured the G2 Dahlia S. first up at Newmarket on May 2, before her Lockinge run. Most recently, the bay ran a solid second behind Indie Angel (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) in the G2 Duke Of Cambridge S. at Royal Ascot on June 16. "She's come out of it pretty well and we're very pleased with her," said the...
