    “Queen Anne’s Troops Advance: Light Infantry on the Move”

    Light Infantry on Course to Shine at Royal Ascot

    The Queen Anne at Royal Ascot is set to be a memorable event, with Light Infantry looking to make his mark following an impressive run in the Prix d’Ispahan at ParisLongchamp. Although he narrowly missed out on victory against Anmaat, Light Infantry’s performance caught the eye of many and has put him in contention for success.

    This was not Light Infantry’s first close call; in fact, it marked his third runner-up finish in Group One company whilst racing in France. However, trainer David Simcock remained optimistic about the horse’s chances after such a strong showing. After finishing seventh and being beaten by Modern Games in the Lockinge at Newbury, there were certainly some doubts surrounding his form going into this race.

    But those concerns proved unfounded as he stepped up to nine furlongs for the first time and produced a battling display that saw him regain second place from Jamie Spencer. Despite trailing towards the end of the race, he showed great determination and resilience to push himself back into contention.

    A Bright Future Ahead?

    Simcock was understandably delighted with how things had gone: “I’m thrilled with how he performed today given our disappointment last time out,” he said after the race. “It was great seeing him show his best here.”

    With talk now turning towards future races for Light Infantry, all eyes are firmly fixed on The Queen Anne – one of the most prestigious events of its kind anywhere in Europe.
