EBRO River gate-crashed the Railway Stakes form over the same course and distance from late June to land the Group 1 Keenland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday, in doing so adding to the embarrassment of riches that Al Shaqab Racing have in the juvenile division this season.

Shane Foley executed the change of tactics on the Hugo Palmer-trained colt to perfection as the pair made pretty much every yard of the running to hold off the challenge of Dr Zempf, who himself was reversing form with Railway Stakes-winner Go Bears Go.
