Regal Realm: Returned to form under Ryan Moore

Regal Realm: Returned to form under Ryan Moore

Regal Realm finished best of all to win a competitive renewal of the Oak Tree Stakes for Jeremy Noseda and Ryan Moore at Glorious Goodwood.

The Group Three contest centred around Godolphin's filly Gamilati, who was making a belated return to a British racecourse having impressed twice in Dubai during the winter.

She was the 9-4 favourite for this first outing since February but could not pick up in the straight and finished well down the field.

Regal Realm mixed it in top company as a juvenile but having not been seen since finishing second-last in the Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket in April, she was a 10-1 shot for this seven-furlong test.

There were still plenty in with chances a furlong down but Regal Realm stayed straight and true for Moore to score by three-quarters of a length from Sunday Nectar, with Appealing rounding off the places.
