The King’s Stand Stakes is one of the premiere five furlong races of the season and was won in remarkable fashion last year by US wonder mare Lady Aurelia. Wesley Ward’s mare was an unbelievably impressive winner of the Queen Mary Stakes at this meeting as a two-year-old by a massive seven lengths and repeated the trick last year when she slammed sixteen rivals to win by three lengths from Profitable. Backing up that Royal Ascot run with a close second in the Nunthorpe, she’s been disappointing the last twice, including a shock defeat on return at Keeneland. She’s undoubtedly capable of better though and her two previous Ascot romps suggest she saves her best for the track. With so much speed, she’s likely to make another bold bid from the front and has to be respected.

Her main rival is the rapid Battaash, who was extremely impressive when hacking up in the King George Stakes at Goodwood and bounced back from a below-par Nunthorpe run to win the Prix de l’Abbaye by a remarkable four lengths. Back in second that day was the high-class Marsha, which would put him close to Lady Aurelia on the Nunthrope form. He returned this season with a win in the Temple Stakes at Haydock and although the margin is far from impressive, he had to come from the back after a tardy start. For a horse who flashes so much early speed, it was an assured performance as he managed to fly home for a narrow success. On peak form, he’s an obvious contender and he won’t be fazed by conditions. That said, the risk to his chance comes at the start, as he can sometimes boil over, as he did in the Nunthorpe last season.

The front two in the market are very hard to see past but there are still a number of interesting candidates lower down. Possibly the most intriguing of the rest is new Ballydoyle resident Merchant Navy. He was a Group 1 winning sprinter in Australia and signed off his career there with a third, beaten just a neck, in the Group 1 Lexus Newmarket Handicap. He made his Irish/stable debut at the Curragh in the Group 2 Greenlands Stakes, showing an impressive turn of foot to win going away after a slow start. That was a very smart field that included Tasleet and Brando, so the form isn’t to be scoffed at. He’s completely unexposed and will relish the likely firm going, so shouldn’t be overlooked with further improvement no discounted.

Godolphin’s hopes are pinned on the chances of Charlie Appleby’s Blue Point, who is a two-time course winner and was a close third in the Commonwealth Cup twelve months ago. Although much of his form has come over the six-furlong trip, he flashed plenty of speed when just denied behind star sprinter Ertijaal at Meydan in February over five furlongs. The pair were miles clear and that effort proved without a doubt that he has the gears for this shorter distance. A subsequent defeat at Sha Tin in Group 1 company can be forgiven and a return to this venue should bring out the best in him. If Lady Aurelia and Battaash take each other on from the word go, this four-year-old is likely to pick up the pieces thanks to his extra stamina.

Wesley Ward comes this year with a two-pronged attack, with Bound For Nowhere looking to build on a fourth-placed finish in last year’s Commonwealth Cup. He has won both his starts this year, impressively coming clear to win the Shakertown Stakes at Keeneland in April over the extended five furlongs. That was a career-best performance and this son of The Factor looks to be improving for age. He will certainly need a frantic gallop given his best form has come over the extended five furlongs, but with so much pace in this race, he’s almost certain to get it. He should be finishing fast and late, with gives him solid frame claims.
