All entries will make it into the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) field on Wednesday, unless they are withdrawn, since the race has a larger-than-normal field size of 20 plus four emergencies.

Headlining the classy field of nominations is the Ken Keys-trained Rich Enuff, who is in great form following three wins and a second placing in his spring campaign.

The colt won the Listed McKenzie Stakes first-up with an impressive 2¼ length lead before continuing his winning streak in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m), beating Looks Like The Cat home in both. He then finished runner-up in the Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m), capping off his fantastic debut season.

Also leading the Coolmore Stud Stakes nominations alongside Rich Enuff is the John O’Shea-trained Earthquake and Gerald Ryan’s Rubick.

Earthquake has yet to finish outside the top three in all of her eight career starts, including five wins. The filly is a last-start winner after taking home the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m), showing her class as she pulled clear of her rivals. However, she hasn’t won at the top level of racing since February’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), so may not be considered as strong competition to her fellow runners.

Rubick has raced in just four meetings, taking home all but one. The colt was spelled after missing out on a placing in the Blue Diamond, returning eight months later for a win in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1000m). As a result the sprinter has been lightly raced this spring, with just the one race to his name.

The Coolmore Stud Stakes 2014 nominations also feature a range of runners who have been prevalent on the spring racing calendar this season.

Eloping, back-to-back winner of the Group 3 Champagne Stakes (1200m) and Listed Blue Sapphire Stakes (1200m), Red Anchor Stakes winner Galaxy Pegasus and runner-up Law, as well as Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) runner-up Scissor Kick all feature on the nominations.

Peter Moody’s Bring Me The Maid will set out to atone for her disappointing spring campaign on Saturday following three disappointing starts.

The filly began well with a win in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) first-up on August 23 before finishing mid-field in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) for which she was the favourite. Punters still had faith in her for the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) last month, making her odds-on favourite but she finished third last. She ran better in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m), missing out on a placing by just a neck.

With such a talented field, the 2014 Coolmore Stud Stakes is set to be an exciting race. Check out the full list of nominations below.
