Connections of Hertford Dancer are looking forward to the filly taking her chance in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot on Thursday.

John Gosden’s three-year-old, bred at Highclere Stud and owned by the 5 Hertford Street Racing Club, was added to the field at a cost of £17,000.

She has been given the opportunity after winning the Lingfield Oaks Trial on her latest start.

“Hertford Dancer is going to have a crack at the Ribblesdale,” said syndicate spokesman Alex Smith.

“She won well at Lingfield so we thought why not? It’s nice to go to Ascot.”

Smith also gave details of a couple of other hopefuls he is associated with at the Royal meeting.

He said: “We’ve got a couple for the Royal Ascot Racing Club – a nice two-year-old called Headway in the Coventry and Projection in the Wokingham.

“And we have Castle Harbour for a Bermuda owner in the Royal Hunt Cup.”
