Ed Walker learned his trade as assistant to Luca Cumani and the 38 year old has developed into a fine trainer in his own right. Agrotera provided the Lambourn based handler with his first Royal Ascot winner when making a mockery of her rating of 88 in the Sandringham Handicap in 2018. Ed has assembled a strong team for the 2021 meeting and I am delighted to announce that the Royal Ascot Update will include an interview. I spoke to Ed on Wednesday afternoon and he kindly pass on his thoughts on a team of around 8 or 9 horses, including the exciting Starman who is ante-post favourite for the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes. He also has some very interesting runners in the handicaps. Ed's 23 winners in 2021 include three Pattern winners.
The Royal Ascot Update will be emailed to clients on Sunday pm (13th June). If you haven't already ordered a copy, please go to the Publications section of the site. I am working at Haydock on Thursday and Aintree on Friday for Racing TV and will therefore update the Diary over the next couple of days.
