Joseph O'Brien: Latrobe in very good order for day one at Royal Ascot

Betfair Ambassador Joseph O'Brien
Joseph O'Brien will saddle just the one runner on the first day of the Royal Ascot meeting

Just the one runner for Joseph O'Brien on the first day of Royal Ascot but he believes Latrobe has a solid each-way chance in the closing Wolferton States...

"We are happy with his draw and we'll be hoping the rain stays away for him. As long as it doesn't get too soft, he looks to have a good each-way chance."

Royal Ascot 17:35 - Latrobe

Latrobe is in very good order since his last run at the Curragh. We had a couple of different options for him at the Royal meeting, but we decided to stick to a mile-and-a-quarter with him for now. His best trip is probably over a bit further than this, but this is a drop in class for him and that should be a help.

We are happy with his draw and we'll be hoping the rain stays away for him. As long as it doesn't get too soft, he looks to have a good each-way chance.
