Battlefield's Sights Set On Ascot

Thursday, 16th July 2009

Following yesterday's Ramornie Handicap victory, 3YO gelding Battlefield (Choisir-Charming Charge, by Rory's Jester) looks set to attempt to follow in the footsteps of Takeover Target & take on Royal Ascot next year, reports The Daily Telegraph. Considering lining Battlefield up in the King's Stand Stakes & the Golden Jubilee, trainer Paul Messara said: "I'd love to do it if he is good enough." Battlefield's sire Choisir (Danehill Dancer-Great Selection, by Lunchtime) won the double in England in 2003. Battlefield will target the 1200m Gr1 Patinack Farm Classic at Flemington on November 7.
