David Probert Blog | Royal Ascot Day Four

21 Jun 2024
Coral Racing Ambassador, David Probert, previews his two rides on the fourth day of Royal Ascot, including See The Fire in the Coronation Stakes.

15:45 Coronation Stakes – See The Fire

Her work has been great at home heading into this race. I'm not sure what happened to her in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket as her connections had strong hopes for her that day. If you put a line through that run, she has some excellent form behind her. She was placed in the Group One Fillies’ Miles as a two-year-old and she was second in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster.

If she puts that last run behind her, I think she has a brilliant chance.

17:05 Sandringham Stakes – Marcella

She was a little disappointing in the German 1,000 Guineas at Dusseldorf last time. Jason Watson rode her that day and she just weakened inside the closing stages. She's right in the deep end here, but we are taking our chance and hoping for a big run. We have already seen a couple of big upsets this week so it is not out of the question that she could be in the mix with a step up in form.
