Juddmonte International winner primed for success

Our traders have cur Roaring Lion to 7/4 favourite for the QIPCO Champion Stakes, following his impressive victory in this afternoon’s Juddmonte International.

The John Gosden-trained thoroughbred beat favourite Poet’s Word at York earlier this week and is now is favourite for victory at Ascot.

Coral’s David Stevens said; “Having added the Juddmonte International to his Coral-Eclipse victory, Roaring Lion has confirmed his position as the season’s leading ten furlong performer, and as a result he’s a worthy favourite for the QIPCO Champion Stakes,”

The American bred, has won three out of his last four races and is primed to do well again in the big race in October.

His challengers will be the much-fancied Poet’s Word as well as last year’s Champion Stakes winner Cracksman.

It will be a competitive field but one where the lion can continue to roar.

**QIPCO Champion Stakes
7-4 (from 5-1) Roaring Lion, 4 Poet’s Word, 5 Cracksman, 7 Crystal Ocean, 10 Enable, Saxon Warrior, 12 Capri, 14 Monarchs Glen, 16 Laurens, Magic Wand, Mirage Dancer, Study Of Man, 20 Bar
