Dean Ivory hopes Librisa Breeze can give him another day to remember at Royal Ascot a week on Saturday in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

Having provided Ivory with his first Group One winner in last year's British Champions Sprint, the son of Mount Nelson will now bid to give him a second top-level success in the six-furlong contest at this year's big meeting. He is 12/1 (non-runner/no bet) with Sky Bet.

The six-year-old, who is owned by Brighton chairman Tony Bloom, failed to feature on his seasonal return when finishing down the field in the Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan in March.

The Radlett handler said: "We are going to the Diamond Jubilee and we will see where we go from there. It is not long until Ascot now and everything seems good at home. He is a very serious horse. Winning the Champions Sprint was one of best days I've ever had.

"Having finished second in the July Cup twice with Tropics, to me that was like winning a Group One, so his (Librisa Breeze's) victory at Ascot in some ways felt like my second one."

A third outing in the Wokingham, and fifth appearance at the prestigious meeting, is on the cards for last year's Stewards' Cup hero Lancelot Du Lac.

Ivory added: "We are going for the Wokingham with Lancelot Du Lac, then probably on to the Stewards' Cup again. We are very pleased with him and as he is getting older he seems to be getting better. He is not really up to the top Group races so we will keep targeting the prize-money in the big handicaps."

He is a 25/1 chance with Sky Bet.
