FRENCH JUVENILE COULD BE ROYAL ASCOT BOUND
The Richard Gibson-trained Dulce De Leche, who made a winning debut in the Prix du Mont de Po at Chantilly on May 25 may be seen next in Royal Ascot's Coventry Stakes.
The Distant View colt found room up the stands' rail under a superb ride from Gerald Mosse to defeat Extinguisher by half a length.
Gibson commented: "Dulce De Leche is a laid-back but precocious colt who we like a lot. He can only improve. We will choose between the Coventry Stakes at Ascot or the Listed Prix La Fleche."
SANDERS PICKS UP 560/1 DOUBLE AT AYR
Jockey Seb Sanders could be a man to follow if the events at Ayr yesterday afternoon are anything to go by as the Epsom-based rider picked up a 560/1 double.
Sanders first victory was something of a surprise as the Ann Duffield-trained Leaping Charlie won the RS Design Handicap at 50/1, and his double was completed by Mytton's Again, trained by Alan Bailey, at a more discreet 10/1.
Afterwards Sanders said: "My best season was 86 winners and it would obviously be great to get up there again. It would be great to ride a few Pattern winners along the way, but if it's quantity rather than quality then that's fine too."
