Scenic Blast wins King's Stand Stakes
Scenic Blast blew away his rivals to give Australia a fourth win in the King's Stand Stakes in five years at Royal Ascot.
Steven Arnold bided his time on Dan Morton's five-year-old, who was drawn on the outside in stall 15.
Tucked in behind in the early stages as last year's winner Equiano made the running, Scenic Blast showed a devastating turn of foot to put daylight between himself and his rivals.
Fleeting Spirit put in a strong bid but she had to settle for second place, beaten three-quarters of a length. Anglezarke was a further two and a three-quarters away in third.
The 11-4 favourite was adding this British leg of the Global Sprint Challenge to his success in the Lightning Stakes at Flemington.
Morton said: "I couldn't be happier, everything went to plan and I've had so much help from everybody here.
"I was very happy where he was during the race. Steven knows him well and rode him perfectly.
"We knew we had a very good horse which is why we are here, but with all the travelling and the rest of it, it's a big thing to get through and still compete when you're here, but luckily enough everything went to plan."
Totesport make Scenic Blast 7-2 joint-favourite (from 7-1) to double up in the Golden Jubilee on Saturday.
