Lagostovegas travels well to win the Ascot Stakes
Lagostovegas provided Willie Mullins with a fourth victory in the Ascot Stakes.
Ireland's 12-times champion jumps trainer had previously struck gold in the two-and-a-half-mile handicap with Simenon (2012), Clondaw Warrior (2015) and last year's winner Thomas Hobson and this year launched a five-pronged assault.
Dual-purpose mare Lagostovegas, who was sporting a hood for the first time, travelled strongly throughout in the hands of Andrea Atzeni and finished strongly to get up and beat Karen McLintock's Dubawi Fifty by a length.
Mullins was also responsible for the third, fourth and fifth home in Stratum, Chelkar and Whiskey Sour.
