Royal Ascot Hero Blue Point Set For July Cup Tilt

Blue Point Set For Newmarket
Blue Point Set For Newmarket

King's Stand Stakes winner Blue Point could step up back in trip for the July Cup according to trainer Charlie Appleby.

The Godolphin owned sprinter stole the headlines last week with his famous victory in the 5f King's Stand Stakes and an attempt at the famous sprint double is now on the cards.

Connections are clearly not afraid to step the horse back up to 6f although the Nunthorpe Stakes, back down at the minimum trip, remains a long term aim later in the season at York.

The son of Sharmadal got the better of Battaash at Ascot to continue his brilliant form at the Berkshire track last week and claim his first win at the very highest level, and a tilt at a second at the HQ of racing is now on firmly the agenda.

The July Cup is always a thrilling race in the wake of Royal Ascot and Blue Point could well meet Diamond Jubilee winner Merchant Navy at Newmarket in  clash of the sprint Group 1 heroes.

Harry Angel is another potential runner in the July Cup although he picked up a minor injury having fallen out of the stalls in the Diamond Jubilee and his participation in the 6f sprint is far from certain according to various reports.

Australian sprinter Redkirk Warrior is also set to take in the Newmarket Group 1 before he flies home according to his trainer David Hayes. The seven-year-old was disappointing in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at the weekend despite being fancied by many and connections are clearly looking for redemption in the UK before they head back down under.
