Richard Fahey has two runners at Royal Ascot on Thursday - and thinks both could acquit themselves well in competitive heats.
Ribchester trotted up sound on Wednesday morning which was great. You can tell he had a race in the Queen Anne – but you expect that when you come down to Royal Ascot.
It was a great performance – a great day – and we’ve plenty of time to freshen him up now and get him ready for his next race, which is likely to be the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.
We’ve two runners on Friday and I think both could go well.
It Don’t Come Easy is a horse we’ve always liked. It was a good performance to win at Musselburgh last time where he broke the track record, so clearly he did something right.
It’s always competitive down here – and the Norfolk is no exception – but my horse is getting better all the time. He did his best ever piece of work in preparation for this and he’s giving us all the right signs going into it.
He’s another we really like and I think the race is going to suit him. It’s a brave shout to say you’re going to win something like this but I’d expect him to run well in it.
