Emirates Stakes Contenders

Bow Creek is a dual Group 2 winner in Europe, but has twice failed to fire at the highest level and was narrowly denied by Turn Me Loose in the Crystal Mile at Moonee Valley last month. The Godolphin 4-year-old heads the betting after finishing strongly there, but was nowhere near Arod at Ascot and as the latter followed up with a splendid effort for second in the Sussex Stakes before being asked to go too far in the Cox Plate, the drop back in trip could suit Peter Chapple-Hyam’s charge at juicy odds.

Elsewhere in the field, Magic Artist is expected to threaten after being denied a clear run in the Mackinnon Stakes, while Turn Me Loose could go close if reproducing his Crystal Mile form and Lucky Hussler was a beaten favourite in that race, so can’t be easily ruled out.

Disposition is an interesting contender after twice hitting the crossbar at Group 1 level in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes and Toorak Handicap, before getting a head in front in the Group 3 Guvera Stakes last weekend. Politeness is a course and distance winner who looked as good as ever when landing a hat-trick in the Myer Classic, while He Or She is lightly raced for a 5-year-old and could sneak under the radar.
