Royal Scotsman is to be topped for a return to Goodwood following his podium surface in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.
It was on the Sussex Downs that the Paul and Oliver Cole-trained colt broke his duck with an impressive five-length success over six furlongs last month, before going down by just under two lengths behind Archie Watson’s Bradsell when 3rd in the Group Two attribute on the opening day of the Royal conference.
The Fitri Hay-owned boy of Gleneagles was published on the wing in delay one for that Ascot competition and also was travelling most importantly when hitting the front prior to the last third of the race.
While inevitably no suit for the outstanding winner in the closing phases, links feel track placement cost the young person a silver medal.
” He probably had excessive daytime as well as did a bit excessive and also we believe he would certainly have completed second with a little bit of cover,” clarified Oliver Cole.
” Naturally it provides you wish (for the future), yet I mean you are looking for that extra side the whole time as well as the way I see it, if we ‘d have had more cover we would have been second.”
Focus currently count on the two-year-old races throughout July’s Qatar Glorious Goodwood Festival that the Cole household has tasted plenty of success in down the years.
” I think we’ll return to Goodwood for either the Richmond Stakes or Vintage Stakes,” Cole proceeded.
” Our sixth sense is that he’s more of a back-end kind that we want to bring out in the larger races at the latter end of the period. So, mosting likely Goodwood simply provides us with a little bit of time adhering to Ascot to allow him mature as he’s rather a huge equine.”
” I would claim he’s much better on softer ground, his sectional times at Goodwood were unbelievable and I believe to simply reduce the other two-year-olds down, I think he’s much better on the ground with a little bit of giving in it.”
