We see a similar result in the record of the seven mares who produced duplicate runners - Affianced Soldier Of Fortune (by Galileo, won in 2007) and Heliostatic (Galileo, seventh 2006); Highland Gift Golan (Spectrum, third 2001) and Tartan Bearer (Spectrum, fourth 2008); La Meilleure Sholokhov (Sadler's Wells, second 2002) and Napper Tandy (Spectrum, seventh 2003); Lady Of Vision Dr Brendler (Distant View, ninth 2001) and Monsieur Henri (Chester House, 11th 2006); Shouk Masterofthehorse (Sadler's Wells, fourth 2009) and Washington Irving (Montjeu, 11th 2008); Star Begonia
Roosevelt (Danehill, third 2003) and Five Dynasties (Danehill, eighth 2004); and Urban Sea Galileo (Sadler's Wells, won 2001) and Urban Ocean (Bering, sixth 2000).
And Star Begonia
, runner-up to Bahr in the Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes, has not run since that day in mid-June.
William Hill bet: 2-1 Nedawi, 7-2 The Glow Worm, 6 High And Low, 13-2 Sadian, Star Begonia
, 8 Dark Moondancer, Ta Lim, 9 Sunshine Street, 25 Eco Friendly, 250 Ardleigh Charmer.
Ireland will also be represented by Aidan O'Brien's Oaks winner Shahtoush and Ribblesdale Stakes runner-up Star Begonia
Danehill was the first option for Michael Tabor's Star Begonia
, a Sadler's Wells daughter of Alexandrie who ran second in the Ribblesdale Stakes.
Hills bet: 2 Nedawi, 7-2 The Glow-Worm, 6 High And Low, 13-2 Sadian, Star Begonia
, 8 Ta-Lim, Dark Moondancer, 9 Sunshine Street, 25 Eco Friendly.
The firm go: 5-4 Bahr, 7-2 Glorosia, 8-1 Kitza, Napoleon's Sister, 12- 1 Olive The Twist, Star Begonia
, Winona, 16-1 bar.
Alexandrie is also dam of Group 2-placed Star Begonia
and grand-dam of last year's Group 3 winner Sadler's Flag and this year's French Listed winner Special Ring.
She then tackled Group 2 company in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot where she faded late to finish fifth behind Bahr and Star Begonia
Bahr then went on to Royal Ascot for the Ribblesdale Stakes and was most impressive, beating Star Begonia
by two lengths.
Today's eight-runner renewal sees three three-year-olds-Ribblesdale Stakes runner-up Star Begonia
, Ulster Derby winner Dragon Triumph and Enzeli, a pace-maker for Ebadiyla, in the line-up.
I knew he had a great chance on form, having beaten the likes of Desert Fox, Star Begonia
and Sunshine Street early in the season.
