Rohaan adds Wokingham Stakes to incredible season's return
Rohaan’s dream season continued apace when he flew home to claim the Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot.
David Evans has worked wonders with the three-year-old, who can surely now lay claim to being one of the best sprinters in training.
Dropped out in last by Shane Kelly, he weaved his way through before quickening impressively to beat Fresh by a neck, with the Queen’s King’s Lynn a fine third given he ran in the King’s Stand on Tuesday.
Rohaan (8-1) would have been running in the Commonwealth Cup, Friday’s Group One for three-year-olds, but for the fact he is a gelding.
Having beaten Dragon Symbol at Haydock last time out, who was subsequently first past the post in the Commonwealth Cup, the form now looks red-hot.
He started his progression winning on the all-weather at Newcastle off a handicap mark of 55 and defied a rating of 112 on this occasion.
Rohaan was providing both Evans and Kelly with their first Royal Ascot winner.
