That Is The Spirit: Steps up in grade at Royal Ascot

The Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot is a potential target for last week's hugely impressive York scorer That Is The Spirit.

David O'Meara's three-year-old confirmed the promise of his winning debut at Doncaster at the end of March by making virtually every yard of the running in what looked a typically competitive seven-furlong handicap on the Knavesmire.

"He's come out of the race in good form and to do what he did at York, he is obviously very good," said the Nawton handler.

"We haven't made any definite plans and I'll speak to his owner, Frank Gillespie, but that (Jersey Stakes) is an option."

Stablemate G Force also looked a sprinter of some potential at York on Friday after winning a five-furlong handicap.

O'Meara said: "He won nicely, and the way he won gave every suggestion he should get six furlongs.

"The Scurry Stakes at Sandown (June 14) is an option and there is also a handicap back at York on the same day.

"We'll see which way we go, but the Scurry is probably the more likely."
