Ouija Board returns in Prince of Wales's

Email

Ouija Board makes her first start since winning the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf at Lone Star Park when she lines up for the Prince of Wales's Stakes on Wednesday, the highlight of the second day of the five-day Royal Ascot at York meeting.

Kieren Fallon is set to ride last year's disqualfied Arlington Million winner, Powerscourt, for Aidan O'Brien, so Jamie Spencer - the jockey aboard Powerscourt at Arlington - will take the mount on Ouija Board, whom he rode twice as a 2-year-old.

Ouija Board won three times at the Group 1 level last year and suffered her only defeat when she ran a creditable third against males in the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe.

Godolphin, who has won this 1 1/4-mile race three times since it was elevated to Group 1 status in 2000, is likely to be represented by Doyen, who scored a brilliant victory in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes last July but disappointed in his next two starts. He has not run since the latter of those, in October.

Irish challenger Azamour, who had Doyen back in seventh when landing the Irish Champion Stakes in September, is another probable runner along with the Australian raider Elvstroem, who made much of the running before finishing second in last month's Prix d'Ispahan in Paris. Elvstroem will be better suited to this left-handed course.

The Windsor Forest Stakes, a Group 2 event at a mile for older fillies, and the Queen Mary Stakes, a five-furlong contest for juvenile fillies that also holds Group 2 status, are the other features on a top quality six-race card.

Soviet Song, a three-time Group 1 winner in 2004, will try to shrug off a five-pound disadvantage in the Windsor Forest, while trainer Mick Channon, who has won the Queen Mary twice in the past seven years, has another strong candidate in the shape of the unbeaten speedball Flashy Wings.
