Battaash secures back-to-back Temple Stakes with impressive victory
Battaash showed an electric turn of foot to decisively land back-to-back runnings of the Group 2 Armstrong Aggregates Temple Stakes under Jim Crowley and round off a golden half-hour for trainer Charlie Hills. Nudged out hands and heels, Battaash opened up a three-length gap over his rivals and won cosily at the line.
Derby favourite Sir Dragonet will be supplemented for Epsom
Investec Derby ante-post favourite Sir Dragonet will be added to the field on Monday at a cost of £85,000, trainer Aidan O'Brien confirmed on Saturday. A hugely impressive winner of the Chester Vase, Sir Dragonet rocketed to the head of the Derby betting following an eight-length success on the Roodee. But his participation was not guaranteed, with O'Brien suggesting the Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly could be an alternative option.
