Expert Eye claimed the Gr.3 Jersey Stakes in convincing style at Royal Ascot yesterday (21st June).

He was held up to the rear of the field as Could It Be Love set off fast under Ryan Moore. He was allowed to pick his way through the field by jockey James McDonald before coasting past Could It Be Love to take the win by four and a half lengths. McDonald, who was registering his first Royal Ascot win, said: "Expert Eye is a good horse and showed that today. He won really well. He added: "He felt like a rocket ship out there. He travelled really kindly and after the three furlong pole he picked up really good. I could see Ryan ahead and I knew he was going to pick him up very quickly - he was impressive."

Expert Eye gave Sir Michael Stoute his 77th Royal Ascot winner. The trainer said: "He was such a good two-year-old, but things went wrong and I'm so thrilled to see him back to this sort of form."
