‘Bomber’ Will Miss Royal Ascot

Lancaster Bomber | Racing Post

Group 1 winner Lancaster Bomber (War Front) will miss an intended engagement in the G1 Prince Of Wales’s S. at Royal Ascot next week due to injury. The bay ran third behind stablemate Rhododendron (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in the G1 Lockinge S. earlier this spring, but won his first top-flight race last time in the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup on May 27.

Trainer Aidan O’Brien was contemplating supplementing his charge for the Prince of Wales’s S. at the Royal meeting, but speaking on www.attheraces.com during a stable tour said, “I don’t think he’ll make it to Royal Ascot. He is going through a niggly problem with a foot at the moment, so it’s likely to he won’t be ready enough to run there.”

O’Brien also confirmed high-class 3-year-old fillies Magical (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and September (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) will not be in action at the summer showpiece fixture in Berkshire next week.
