    Best of Luck to Dynaformer’s MICHITA in the Ribblesdale S. (G2) at Royal Ascot

    The Idea is Excellence.

    ‘MARMALADE’ TOASTS THEM! Duke of Marmalade (Ire) (Danehill) attracted heavy support into even-money favoritism for yesterday=s G1 Prince of Wales=s S. and the cash flow was fully justified as Susan Magnier and Michael Tabor=s bay crushed the opposition to provide Ballydoyle with its third Group 1 success of the Royal meeting. Adding to

    wins in Longchamp=s G1 Prix Ganay and the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup at The Curragh, the four-year-old turned on the power passing the quarter pole and soon had his rivals toiling en route to a four-length defeat of Phoenix Tower (Chester House). Jockey Johnny Murtagh was glowing in his

    praise afterwards. AHe is up there with the best I=ve ridden,@ Murtagh said. AAidan [O=Brien] has been getting him ready for this all year and today was the big target. I ride him a lot in his work and he=s been showing speed and has really come good.@ Cont. p2

    THE GOLD STANDARD With three Group 1 races already in the bag for Ballydoyle this week, hopes will be high that Yeats (Ire) (Sadler=s Wells) can make it a Royal meeting to remember in today=s G1 Gold Cup. This con- test has been the jewel in the crown since its inception in 1807 and, throughout its long history, only Sagaro (GB) has recorded three successes to eclipse multi- ple dual winners. Susan Magnier and Diane Nagle=s seven-year-old, who was imperious in 2006 un- der Kieren Fallon and professional for Mick Kinane 12 months ago, is agonizingly close to equalling that milestone set in 1977. He warmed up with a win in the Listed Vintage Crop S. at Navan Apr. 27 and has been deliberately kept fresh for his historic bid. AHe had a perfect start to the season and all has been well since then,@ O=Brien told Racing Post. AHe has often had a run between his first run and Ascot, but we decided to come straight here this time. We will see tomorrow if that was the right decision, but he is in good form, and is older and wiser than last year.@ Jockey Johnny Murtagh had an additional mes- sage for his opponents. AI=ve sat on him at home and he=s flying,@ he added. Gold Cup cont. p6

    Prince of Wales=s S. cont.

    Although it was only whispered in corners at the time and not backed up by connections, Duke of Marmalade was touted as Ballydoyle=s best juvenile when he ar- rived at Glorious Goodwood for the G2 Vintage S. in August 2006. Injured after his second to Strategic Prince (GB) there, his long road back to full effective- ness was only beginning when fourth in both the G1 English and Irish 2000 Guineas last May. Runner-up in this meeting=s G1 St James=s Palace S. and fourth in York=s G1 International S. in August, it took stable companion Dylan Thomas (Ire) to stop him in Leopardstown=s G1 Irish Champion S. before he fin- ished off with a third in the G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. at Ascot the following month. The bay posted a workmanlike first stakes score in the Apr. 27 Prix Ganay before turning back Finsceal Beo (Ire) in the G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup at The Curragh May 25, and he took another leap forward with a career-best this time. Settled in a pocket against the rail tracking the strong pace set by his stable companion Red Rock Canyon (Rock of Gibraltar {Ire}), he was angled wide for his run at the top of the stretch where Pressing (Soviet Star) was traveling with ominous ease. Sweeping by that rival with an irresistible surge before the eighth pole, the result was settled in a matter of strides as Phoenix Tower and Pipedreamer stayed on in his slipstream.

    AHe=s getting better and better,@ Aidan O=Brien said after greeting his first Prince of Wales=s hero. AHe had pins in his leg due to a bad fracture after Goodwood as a two-year-old, and we were never really able to train him last year because he was semi-lame all the time. He was probably car- rying more weight than he should have been, and wasn=t able to use himself the way he is this year. He=s gone very athletic and is showing more pace, but looking at him today you=d say he wouldn=t have a problem going further than a mile and a quarter as well, so he has a lot of options open to him. He=s traveling and quickening better this year.@ Duke of Marmalade=s dam Love Me True, hailing from the Weekend Surprise family of A.P. Indy, et al, was acquired for $1.35 million at the 1999 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale. Racing in the colors of Susan Magnier, her career highlight for O=Brien was a third to stable- mate Perigee Moon in the 2000 G3 Killavullan S.

    PER-FECTION France was on the scoresheet for the Royal meeting

    yesterday after Scuderia Zaro=s Sabana Perdida (Ire)

    (Cape Cross {Ire}) wore down favored Heaven Sent

    (GB) (Pivotal {GB}) to take the G2 Windsor Forest S.

    Following a near-miss with Darjina (Fr) in Tuesday=s

    G1 Queen Anne S., trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre cele-

    brated when his five-year-old charge claimed a 3/4-

    length success as the 4-1 second choice. AShe=s a very

    serious filly,@ de Royer-Dupre. AAt the beginning of last

    year, she would always pull, but she is very calm now

    and able to wait before producing big acceleration.@

    Campaigned in Italy by Roberto Feligioni at two and three, Sabana Perdida placed third in the G2 Premio Regina Elena (Italian 1000 Guineas) at the Capannelle and fourth in the San Siro=s G1 Oaks d=Italia in 2006. Transferred to de Royer-Dupre soon after, she took time to find her feet for her new base, and only truly broke through with a third behind Nannina (GB) and Satwa Queen (Fr) in this race 12 months ago. She showed she had turned a corner when taking Longchamp=s G3 Prix du Pin in September, and returned with a smooth suc- cess in the May 10 G3 C
