Lady Aurelia stuns Ascot with Queen Mary romp  

     Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2), 5f, 2yo

LADY AURELIA put up one of the most devastating displays seen in modern times at Royal Ascot when blitzing to a seven-length win in the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes.

The US raider did not see any of her 16 rivals when making all in the hands of Frankie Dettori to give Wesley Ward a third win in the 5f juvenile fillies feature.

Despite doubts about the draw and the ground, Lady Aurelia travelled strongly throughout and had the race in the bag even before kicking in the turbo at the furlong pole to streak away from French runner Al Jahrah.

The success was the second in two days for Lady Aurelia`s sire Scat Daddy who was also responsible for Caravaggio, winner of the Group 2 Coventry Stakes.

Previously, the winner had scored by seven and half lengths on her debut on the dirt at Keeneland in April when she had also made the running.

Dettori said: "That was breathtaking from the top. To win by seven lengths at Royal Ascot was sensational and I`ve never seen or experienced anything like it especially for a two-year-old."

He added: "I was going some very good splits but when I got to the furlong pole she found another gear it was unbelievable. "

Bookies were initially quoting Lady Aurelia for the Nunthorpe at York, the route taken by Ward`s Acapulco last year, but the trainer said afterwards that the Molecomb Stakes or the Prix Morny were more likely targets.
