Sir Busker third in the Listed Paradise Stakes and Carolus Magnus second by an agonising neck.

 In News

More prize money earned yesterday as both Sir Busker and Carolus Magnus ran big races in defeat.

First up at his favourite track was Sir Busker coming third in the Listed Paradise Stakes. The William Knight-trained 5yo was held up by Oisin Murphy as normal and made smooth progress into the race around the 2f pole. He looked the winner but ultimately ran out of steam, having been off the track since October. He was eventually third, beaten just over a length, by a battle hardened and fitter winner. It was a fine effort in defeat and all being equal he will head straight to the Queen Anne on the opening day of Royal Ascot, where he should be in with a good each way chance.

Carolus Magnus just failed to back up his Newmarket win, with a fine second at Chelmsford beaten an agonising neck. The gelded son of Holy Roman Emperor, broke well and was in the lead most the race. However he just failed to hang on in the dying strides and the winner is now three from three, so the form looks strong. He is now eligible for a handicap mark and the plan is to head to the Brittania at Royal Ascot, with the possibility of one run in between.
