Point Lonsdale

The first horse to follow at Royal Ascot from their run last week is the Aidan O'Brien trained Point Lonsdale that off the back of his debut run went into be the 2/1 favourite for the Listed Chesham Stakes.

The two year old son of Australia made his debut over seven furlongs at The Curragh and was an emphatic winner of the event, scoring by close to six lengths.

With the performance being extremely taking, it also has big merit behind it when it comes to going for the Chesham next as it was the same race last year that Battleground won before heading into the same race at the royal meeting.

Exciting prospect.

Dr Zempf

Next up is Dr Zempf for Ger Lyons, who similarly won on debut at The Curragh on the same card as Point Lonsdale, with the juvenile being equally as impressive.

The son of Dark Angel was seen in a decent six furlong event and showed clear ability and pace to see off what looked a decent field by close to three lengths.

The juvenile has now been installed as the 8/1 second favourite for the Group Two Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot and he is only going to improve for that run.

One to watch.


The final horse to watch out for at Royal Ascot is the William Haggas trained Mohaafeth, who has been superb this season and looked set to run in the Derby on Saturday, but was pulled out on the day of the Classic event and will instead go to Ascot.

The son of Frankel has been seen three times this season and has landed a hat-trick of wins having got off the mark for his career at Lingfield in March in a Novice Stakes and he then backed that up in a handicap at Newmarket over 1m2f.

His best performance of the season came last time out when landing the Listed Newmarket Stakes over 1m2f, seeing off the smart Secret Protector by an easy five lengths, never really having to come off the bridle.

He was third favourite for the Derby, but his handler did warn that if everything wasn't right for him he would not run and that was the case.

The colt now looks set to be heading to Royal Ascot into the Group Three Hampton Court Stakes where he is a short price off the back of what Haggas said after pulling him out of the Derby.
