Ribchester now clear favourite for Queen Anne glory at Royal Ascot
Lockinge Stakes hero Ribchester has been cut for this year’s Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot following his victory at Newbury.
The Richard Fahey-trained colt is now 9/4 (from 3/1) to follow-up his most recent Group 1 success when he returns to Berkshire in June.
Ribchester set the pace and made all in good style yesterday, coming home three and three-quarter lengths in front of the gallant Lightning Spear.
Old sparring partner Galileo Gold could only manage fifth and and is 7/1 to turn the tables on his rival in the Queen Anne.
The aforementioned Lightning Spear is a 10/1 shot alongside the Al Shaqab-owned Qemah.
Godolphin mare Usherette is available at 12/1 with her Prix du Muguet conqueror and fellow Andre Fabre-trained charge Jimmy Two Times the same price.
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “We were really impressed by Ribchester’s performance and already we are seeing ante-post support ahead of the Queen Anne next month.”
