Tim Easterby ready for Royal rumble with Wells Farhh Go

Wells Farhh Go (red cap) on his way to winning the Acomb Stakes at York

Tim Easterby is looking forward to seeing Wells Farhh Go step up in distance for the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot on Friday.

The three-year-old was unbeaten in two starts at York as a juvenile, including a Group Three success in the Acomb Stakes.

He returned to the Knavesmire for last month’s Dante Stakes at York and although he was ultimately well beaten in sixth place, Easterby expects to see his charge in a better light as he steps up in distance in Berkshire.

The trainer said: “Wells Farhh Go definitely runs, whatever the weather.

“He doesn’t need soft ground – he’s fine on good ground.

“It’s the trip he needs.”

Another Easterby inmate set to make the journey south from Yorkshire next week is the unbeaten two-year-old Vintage Brut.

The son of Dick Turpin will bid to claim his third victory from as many starts in Thursday’s Norfolk Stakes, but will first go under the hammer at the Goffs London Sale on the eve of Royal Ascot.

“Vintage Brut is in great form, he’s like a rocket,” Easterby added.

“Of course he’s in the sale the night before, which could pose a problem for me. If a wealthy owner comes in and buys him to send to another trainer it could run in their name, but that’s the situation.

“Whoever’s name he runs under he’ll run very well, I’m sure of that.”
