Estimate Targeting Return To Royal Ascot
Meanwhile, the Royally-owned mare Estimate (Monsun-Ebaziya, by Darshaan) will be aimed at the Gr3 British Champions Long Distance Cup (3200m) on QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot on October 20, reports attheraces.com. Trainer Sir Michael Stoute has confirmed that the Queen's 4YO mare will return to the scene of her last-start Gr1 Gold Cup triumph later in the year, but stated her immediate goals were undecided. Estimate became the first horse owned by a reigning monarch to win the Gold Cup continuing her affinity with the Berkshire track. She is unbeaten in all three starts there, with her other victories the Gr3 Queen's Vase & Gr3 Sagaro Stakes.
