German Trainer Targets Royal Ascot
After saddling Germany's first runner in England's Gr1 Investec Derby, trainer Andreas Wohler is heading to Royal Ascot with a couple of outside chances, reports turftrax.com. Indomito (Areion-Insola, by Royal Solo) will take on Animal Kingdom in the Gr1 Queen Anne Stakes, while Altano (Galileo-Alanda, by Lando) will most likely contest the Ascot Gold Cup. Wohler said, "Indomito will probably run in the Queen Anne. He ran well in the race last year (fourth to Frankel). Altano will definitely run in the Gold Cup and he will be ridden by my jockey, Eduardo Pedroza. Earl Of Tinsdal is not a definite runner, he would need it to rain. He doesn't have to have it soft but he doesn't like quick ground."
