Charlie Appelby has confirmed last season’s Investec Derby hero Masar will be part of his team that will run at Royal Ascot next month.
The four-year-old has not been seen since his heroic victory at Epsom Downs on June 2, with jockey William Buick guiding him home in the Derby.
Masar suffered a leg injury before last season’s Coral-Eclipse but connections are still willing to consider him for Ascot next month.
Appelby’s charge is set to run in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, which could affect stablemate Ghaiyyath.

When asked about Masar, he told the Racing Post: “I’d probably like to go up to a mile and a half with Ghaiyyath in the Hardwicke because, dare I say it, Masar is coming along nicely.
It is one day at a time with him but it could be him in the Prince of Wales’s. “If I’m fortunate enough to get him there in time then that is more likely his route, allowing Ghaiyyath to go a merry gallop in the Hardwicke.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
