Royal Ascot

WE send out 3 runners on Day 1 of Royal Ascot.

In the Ascot Stakes we run PIED PIPER and NDAAWI. Pied Piper is a classy individual who has been placed at the Cheltenham Festival and finished 2nd in the Irish Cesarewitch on his last flat outing back in October. He carries top weigh here today but should show a good account of himself with Jamie Spencer booked to ride. Ndaawi is having his first run on the flat since joining us from Andrew Balding. He’s been a consistent sore over hurdles for connections and comes into the race fresh and well. Declan McDonogh rides.

PARTY CENRTAL represents us in the COPPER HORSE HANDICAP. She has won two of her 3 starts on the flat to day and is open to improvement. Jamie Spencer takes the ride.
