Kevin Ryan has confirmed that Inisherin (GB) (Shamardal) will be supplemented for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot following his dominant victory in the Sandy Lane S. at Haydock.

Inisherin became the first horse to take the scalp of Vandeek (GB) (Havana Grey {GB}), who could only manage third, on Saturday. Ryan reports the colt to have come out of the 6f contest in rude health and says it is all systems go for Ascot. 

“I was delighted with him on Saturday, he’s a horse with a lot of speed,” Ryan said. “Sheikh Mohammed Obaid was in agreement that we’d try six furlongs and we were always very confident it would suit him.”

The trainer added, “He moved through the race great and quickened up nicely. It would probably be nicer for us in a race where you could give him a lead, but he has such a high cruising speed you have to let him use his stride.

“He’s a super horse to train in that he has a great mind and a great constitution, he’s a very simple horse to deal with. Sheikh Mohammed Obaid is going to supplement him for the Commonwealth Cup, all things being equal.”
