Alverta "Working Nicely" For Royal Ascot Debut
Meanwhile fellow Australian sprinter & Gr1-winning 6YO mare Alverta (Flying Spur-Grilse, by Rahy) worked on the Al Bahathri Polytrack on Sunday morning "where she was partnered by Leah Gavranich in a spin over 3 furlongs" reported racingpost.com. Alverta (who won March's Gr1 Coolmore Classic over 1500m at Rosehill in Sydney) is aiming at Royal Ascot's Gr1 Golden Jubilee Stakes (6 furlongs) on June 19 & trainer Paul Messara commented: "She worked nicely & Tye Angland (Australian jockey) will be coming over next week to ride her in the Golden Jubilee."
