Highflyer Bloodstock

A number of Highflyer-purchased horses are due to run at Royal Ascot this week with some with the best chances running in the first day’s Ascot Stakes with Verdana Blue and Land Of Oz as well as a couple of longer-priced shots trained by Paul Nicholls in Ashutor and San Benedeto. Alan King has good hopes for a trio of runners during the week headed by Tritonic (Thursday), Scarlet Dragon (Friday) and Who Dares Wins (Saturday) and the owner of the latter two, Henry Ponsonby also has HMS President racing on Thursday for Eve Johnson Houghton.
