Battaash (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) has exited his fourth-place finish in last week's G1 King's Stand S. in good form and is on course to attempt a fifth straight win in Goodwood's G2 King George S. on July 30. The 7-year-old gelding was making his first run since last summer when folding in the late stages after attending a hot pace in the King's Stand.

“He's come out of the race really well actually, he's been cantering away this week and we're really pleased with him,” said trainer Charlie Hills. “They went really fast and with it being first time out it just caught him out. It's a stiff five furlongs at Ascot, it has never really played to his strengths and he just got tired and a bit leg-weary in the last half furlong. He's also there to be shot out when it transpires like that. We'll go to Goodwood now, his races are pretty obvious.”
