Royal Ascot 2019 – Tuesday

Days don’t come much bigger than Tuesday 18th of June for our yard. In the space of 40 minutes we will see Battaash, Equilateral and Phoenix Of Spain run in the two big races of the day. All the horses appear to be in great form at home and those closest to each horse are very happy. They should all act on the ground, however we hope the forecast thunder storms don’t materialise too early in the afternoon.

Bob, who looks after Battaash, has quite a big hoodoo to overcome as he has never led up a winner at Ascot – and he has taken some seriously good horses over the years including Battaash’s sire Dark Angel. We really hope that tomorrow is the day he breaks it.
