Threat

Cheveley Park are excited at the prospect of their Newmarket winner Threat, as he heads to next week’s Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The Footstepsinthesand colt stormed to victory on debut last month and connections have since waited for this contest.

Cheveley Park’s managing director Chris Richardson said: “Threat looks like running in the Coventry on Tuesday, and we’ll probably have Angel’s Hideaway in the Jersey Stakes.

“We haven’t finalised plans for Veracious yet, but we’re considering the Duke of Cambridge for her.

“Those would be the three at this stage.”

Brigadier Gerard winner Regal Reality is likely to miss the meeting and wait for the Coral Eclipse Stakes at Sandown Park.

“I think he’s probably going to go back to Sandown for the Eclipse,” said Richardson.

“I know he might have a bit of a problem with the chute again there, but he’s obviously got course form and I know Sir Michael is very happy with him at the moment.

“I don’t think Ascot would suit him – going under the tunnel out on to the track and things like that. I think it would all be a bit too much for him.

“We don’t know if he’s a Group One horse or not, but we’ll aim at the Eclipse and hopefully find out.”
