After a trio of close shaves in recent history, Dragon Symbol is surely due some fortune at this level


A drop back down to five furlongs for a battle with course specialist Battaash is an intriguing decision given the colt’s impressive displays over the slightly longer trip at Haydock, Ascot and Newmarket of late.

He was unfortunate in Berkshire when disqualified but both he and the winner powered clear of the rest of the field.

Can Dragon Symbol dethrone Battaash at Goodwood?

In Suffolk, he proved that was no fluke when running a talented rival close on the July Course but a return to softer conditions looks as though it will play into his favour.

Charles Hills’s star Dark Angel gelding unquestionably remains the one to beat, but the slower surface won’t help his chances and there were seemingly no immediate excuses at Royal Ascot.
