Blue Point Heading For Diamond Jubilee Stakes

Back to back winner of the King's Stands Stakes Blue Point is set to go in search of his second Group 1 of Royal Ascot 2019 as his trainer Charlie Appleby eyes up the Diamond Jubilee Stakes on Saturday.

The Godolphin-owned five-year-old was magnificent again in the sprinting Group 1 on the first day of the festival and gave punters a Deja Vu moment when beating Battaash for a second year running in the five-furlong contest.

James Doyle was the only difference this year with William Buick on board back in 2018 but the overall story for the horse is how well he performs on the big stage at Ascot winning four out of his five races at the Berkshire track.

This record may have been the turning point in Appleby declaring him for Saturday's feature Group 1 contest in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes where the sprinter looks set to step up six furlongs and do battle for another black type victory at the Royal meeting.

The ground conditions for Blue Point's win on Tuesday were officially good and with the rain falling since then making the straight course now soft it may not play to his strengths.

However, the English trainer has explained that his horse is in the form of his life and all roads lead to the five year old running for a second time in the space of a week.

(Credit Racing Post) The trainer said: “Blue Point’s in the Diamond Jubilee so we’re thinking about it. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed is here so we’ll discuss it with him and take into account what he thinks about his condition. It’s a possibility for him, yes.”

Since this declaration the Godolphin sprinter has gone to favourite in the betting market being cut form 6/1 to 5/2 with Invincible Army drifting to 4/1.
