Marco Botti is favouring an outing in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot for Grade One winner Capla Temptress.

The three-year-old daughter of Lope De Vega made an encouraging return to action on her first start since rejoining the Newmarket handler from Bill Mott when finishing fourth in the French 1000 Guineas at ParisLongchamp.

Botti said: “She stayed on well and ran a great race. We were very pleased with her.

“She has not really grown a lot from two to three, but that was an encouraging first run since coming back from America.

“She is in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, we will wait and see at the moment, but there is nothing else for her before Ascot.

“It’s not a final decision that we are going there, but we are definitely leaning towards the Coronation Stakes.”
