Mrs. Fitri Hay's Royal Scotsman (Ire) (Gleneagles {Ire}), fresh off a narrow second in the G1 Dewhurst S., will now head to winter quarters. His next intended start is the G1 2000 Guineas at Newmarket in May. A second up winner at Goodwood on May 20, the colt was third in the G2 Coventry S. at Royal Ascot before taking the G2 Richmond S. back at Goodwood. Prior to his Dewhurst second he was fifth in the G2 Gimcrack S. at York.

Oliver Cole, who trains with his father Paul, said, “After York, he came back and wasn't quite right. He was a bit ill. We are very happy with him now. He is one of the best horses we have ever had and he is a very genuine, tough horse and we are very lucky to have him.

“He is amazing and goes on any ground, which is incredible. He has a lot of scope and is an exceptional racehorse. Hopefully he will show it next season.”
