Caspian Prince could go to Ireland in search of further sprint success after fulfilling a long-held ambition for trainer Dean Ivory by winning the Investec Corporate Banking Dash at Epsom.

The Radlett handler has the Rockingham Handicap at the Curragh on June 26 in mind for the 7 year old, who made a triumphant return from a 100-day break to take the valuable five-furlong handicap.

Caspian Prince was winning the race for a second time, having lifted the prize in 2014 when trained by Tony Carroll.

“I’ll enter him for the Rockingham in Ireland at the Curragh on the 26th and then there’s a race in July at York, the John Smith’s City Wall Stakes, a Listed race. We’ll have a look at that as well,” said Ivory.

“I’m delighted with that obviously. It’s a race we’ve been wanting to win for a very long time, and we’ve won it now.

“He’s fine and enjoying his time in the play pen. He knows he’s won and he’s taken it in his stride.

“Everything went right for us and we had our luck yesterday.

“I never realised he was 7lb higher than when he won two years ago. I thought it was only a pound or two.

“Robert (Winston) gets on so well with him and he rides Epsom really well.”
