Dream Ahead's Dream of Dreams Makes It Third Time Lucky In The Diamond Jubilee


Dream of Dreams | racingfotos.com


Putting two agonising defeats in the 2019 and 2020 renewals of Royal Ascot's G1 Diamond Jubilee S. behind him on Saturday, Saeed Suhail's Dream of Dreams (Ire) (Dream Ahead) was in front before the line this time to issue a 82nd Royal winner to Sir Michael Stoute. Last year's G1 Haydock Sprint Cup and G2 Hungerford S. winner was able to take his time among the group racing up the centre and when delivered by Ryan Moore wore down Glen Shiel (GB) (Pivotal {GB}) inside the final 150 yards for a length success as the 3-1 favourite. There was 3/4 of a length back to Art Power (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}), who had been asked to attempt to make all towards the stand's side and who only gave best in the final furlong.
