Royal Ascot Dream Still Alive For Australian Ace Anamoe

He may have had his colours lowered by British raider Dubai Honour (Ire) (Pride Of Dubai {Aus}) in the G1 Queen Elizabeth S. at Randwick last week, but Australian star Anamoe (Aus) (Street Boss) is still in contention to run at Royal Ascot this summer.

A nine-time Group 1 winner is his native Australia, Anamoe could only manage third behind William Haggas’s Dubai Honour, but connections are not giving up on the Ascot dream despite most firms pushing his odds for the G1 Queen Anne S. out to 12-1.

Godolphin Australia spokesman Vin Cox told racenet, “We’ve still got Anamoe in light work. We are not making any excuses for his defeat last week but we feel he wasn’t quite at his best.

“Anamoe will be given a chance to freshen up and we will see how he is later this month then make a decision on Royal Ascot. We don’t have to lock anything in just yet.”

The same statement applies for James Cummings’ stablemate Aft Cabin (Aus) (Astern {Aus}), who put himself in the Royal Ascot picture when landing the G2 Arrowfield Sprint last Saturday.
