Royal Ascot winner Desert Hero 3/1 to triumph in the bet365 Gordon Richards Stakes

Desert Hero makes his seasonal reappearance at Sandown on Friday afternoon and we have priced him up at 3/1 to win the bet365 Gordon Richards Stakes.

William Haggas' four-year-old provided one of the stories of last summer as he became the first Royal Ascot winner for King Charles, courtesy of his victory in the King George V Stakes.

Desert Hero then went on to win the Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood before finishing a respectable third in the St Leger to end his 2023 campaign.

Connections will be hopeful that the return at Sandown this week can be the start of a successful summer for Desert Hero, who could develop into one of the best middle-distance horses in 2024.

He is set to face strong competition from the likes of Israr and Flying Honours in Friday's Group 3 race but a winning start to the season could put Desert Hero firmly in the picture for some of the summer's biggest prizes.
