Jack Hobbs was very impressive when roaring back to form at Meydan last month winning the Dubai Sheema Classic and Royal Ascot is his next target

JOHN GOSDEN has confirmed Dubai Sheema Classic winner Jack Hobbs will not run again before Royal Ascot.

After an injury-hit 2016, the 2015 Irish Derby winner roared back to his best with a dominant display at Meydan last month.


The Hardwicke Stakes and the Prince of Wales’s Stakes over 10 furlongs are his options at the showpiece meeting in June.

Gosden said: “He will go on anything except firm ground. He travelled out there (Dubai) well and has come back well.

Jack Hobbs was impressive in the Sheema Classic

“We will point him towards Royal Ascot as most of the big middle-distance races are not until June.”

So Mi Dar, forced to miss the Oaks through a setback last summer, is on course to return at York’s Dante meeting in May.

“So Mi Dar is fine and the plan with her is to go to the Middleton,” said Gosden, who was at Chelmsford overseeing a few workers, including Derby contender Cracksman, before racing on Thursday.

“Frankie was on board Cracksman and went what the Americans call wire-to-wire,” said Gosden.

“I was pleased with the way he lengthened well. We are pointing him towards the race at Epsom.

“We did supplement him for the Derby. We had him entered in the Guineas, but he looks like he will be more happier over middle distances.

“He won a mile maiden at Newmarket on his only start last year and came up the hill well.”

Royal Artillery and Western Hymn we are looking towards the Gordon Richards Stakes at Sandown. It was good to bring them here to see the racecourse again and they both worked nicely.”
