Bajan set for Gold run

Connections of Blue Bajan are leaning towards supplementing the Henry II Stakes winner for the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, although they still intend to wait until later in the week before making a final decision.

The nine-year-old, trained by David O'Meara, has been handed quotes of around 16-1 should he take his chance in the two-and-a-half-mile contest on Thursday week.

"Nothing has changed but I think the owners are quite keen," said the North Yorkshire trainer.

"They don't want to commit until they have to. They are just going to wait until Friday and make sure everything is fine before supplementing him.

"We're looking forward to taking him down there if that's what Dr Hollowood (owner) wants to do."
