Unbeaten three-year-old Cogito (3c Giant’s Causeway-Ladies Cruise, by Fappiano) is heading to the G1 St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot after winning the Listed Heron Stakes at Sandown on Thursday.
Brian Meehan trains the Lazy Lane Farms-bred Giant’s Causeway colt for Paul Reddam and he followed a runaway Newmarket maiden win with this stylish success under Frankie Dettori.
“There was a lack of pace and it looked tough for him in the straight, but he’s a nice horse and he’s progressing,” said Meehan. “The G1 St James’s Palace Stakes is the obvious next move as this is a good trial for that, but I’ll obviously talk to his connections. Frankie gave him a great ride, he’s the best.”
