Lady Aurelia's King's Stand win earns her a huge Timeform rating
Posted in: Royal Ascot News
The three-year-old was an awesome seven length winner of last year's Queen Mary at this meeting, and this performance was even more incredible, pulverising high-class opponents who were unable to lay a glove on her.
Her rating of 135 is just 1 lb below Habibti, who dominated the European sprint scene as a three-year-old back in 1983, and the Australian super-mare Black Caviar, who also achieved that figure when at the peak of her powers in Australia in 2012. The rating also makes her the top three-year-old in training, 7 lb ahead of Caravaggio who runs in Friday's Commonwealth Cup.
Lady Aurelia's rating suggests that she will dominate the top five-furlong races around the world, with Wes Ward's filly likely to return to Britain to contest the Nunthorpe Stakes at York in August.
