Leopardstown next up for Alamshar


Alamshar is reported to be in fine fettle this morning after his brilliant win in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot.

John Oxx's star was a three-and-a-half length winner over Sulamani yesterday, with Vodafone Derby winner Kris Kin back in third.

Connections have indicated that he may drop back to a mile and a quarter next time in the Ireland the Food Island Champion Stakes at Leopardstown, before a possible trip to America for the Breeders' Cup Turf.

Oxx's wife, Caitriona, said this morning: "He's brilliant. He travelled home perfectly and there was absolutely no problems. He's in great form this morning."
