Haggas Grabs Another At Royal Ascot

Ryan Moore leads jockey standings after Day 2

Move Swiftly gave trainer William Haggas his second winner of the week, and his 10th overall, when taking the £175,000 Gr2 Duke of Cambridge Stakes under Danny Tudhope – who was scoring at Royal Ascot for the third time in two days.

The 9/1 chance, a daughter of Farhh, beat Rawdaa (Sir Michael Stoute/Frankie Dettori) by a neck.

Haggas’s first winner of the meeting was Addeybb, who won Tuesday’s Listed Wolferton Stakes under Tudhope.

Haggas said: “I’m thrilled to bits with this filly and she enjoyed the ground. We took a few to Newbury to work and she worked nicely. She’s run well. The other one, Pretty Baby, didn’t go on the ground and probably didn’t get the trip either.

“I haven’t got any plans for her. She’s won here!”

Danny Tudhope temporarily went to the top of the QIPCO Royal Ascot Leading Jockey award standings after he registered his third victory of the week at the Berkshire venue following the success of 9/1 shot Move Swiftly.

Tudhope, registering his fifth victory overall at the Royal Meeting, was successful yesterday aboard Lord Glitters in the G1 Queen Anne Stakes and Addeybb, also trained by Haggas, in the Listed Wolferton Handicap.
