Naas stage some potentially key Royal Ascot pointers on Sunday, with the feature G3 Goffs Lacken S. seeing the reintroduction of AMO Racing and Giselle De Aguiar's G1 Phoenix S. and G2 Railway S. winner Bucanero Fuerte (GB) (Wootton Bassett {GB}). Failing to see out the seventh furlong of the G1 Vincent O'Brien National S. when last seen at The Curragh in September, he faces last year's G3 Marble Hill S. winner Givemethebeatboys (Ire) (Bungle Inthejungle {GB}) who has a race under his belt having won Navan's Listed Committed S. last month.

In the card's G3 Coolmore Stud Irish EBF Fillies Sprint S., a fascinating pre-Ascot clash awaits as Moyglare's Sparkling Sea (Ire) (Starspangledbanner {Aus}) bids to confirm of her course-and-distance defeat of Ballydoyle's Fairy Godmother (Ire) (Night Of Thunder {Ire), with Alpha Racing's four-length Curragh Median Sires Series Maiden winner Barnavara (Ire) (Calyx {GB}) also in the mix. The latter hails from the Jessica Harrington stable successful in this in 2017 with Alpha Centauri (Ire) (Mastercraftsman {Ire}), while the last two winners were Meditate (Ire) (No Nay Never) and Porta Fortuna (Ire) (Caravaggio) so it pays to take note of this early juvenile staging post.
