Saville Road is on course for the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot after pleasing connections in a racecourse gallop at Lingfield.

The Mozart colt was an impressive winner of a conditions stakes at Newmarket in April and showed all the right signs in his spin at the Surrey track.

Trainer Declan Daly said: "We were very happy with his work. He went seven furlongs on the Polytrack under Shane Kelly, who will be riding him in the Jersey Stakes. The key to Saville Road is that he relaxes and Shane had him switched off before picking off his lead horse over a furlong out and then stretching away in a manner that pleased me.

"His attitude was very good and physically and mentally he is a different horse from the one at Newmarket. He is maturing all the time."
