Next Saturday sees the running of two Group 3 events at Ascot, as the build up to the TABtouch Masters continues.
The Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1000m) is expected to bring together a similar field to the Crawford Stakes a fortnight ago. A key addition is Roma Cup winner Money Matters, with Shaun O’Donnell to ride. The field size is expected to grow for the Colonel Reeves on November 13 with the likes of Wilchino, Iseered Iseered and Red Can Man all a chance to head that way.
