Noor Elaine Farm’s multiple pattern-race winner Asfoora (Aus) (Flying Artie {Aus}–Golden Child {Aus}, by I Am Invincible {Aus}), who placed twice in elite-level sprints for Down Under, benefitted from a Oisin Murphy masterclass and pounced late to secure a sixth renewal for Australia in Tuesday’s G1 King Charles III S., the rebranded King’s Stand S., at Royal Ascot.

The 5-year-old Henry Dwyer trainee broke smartly and accepted a tow from Regional (GB) (Territories {Ire}), racing second in the smaller stands’ side group, as GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint hero Big Evs (Ire) (Blue Point {Ire}) blitzed ahead on the far side. Drifting out of Regional’s slipstream for a clear passage passing halfway, the 5-1 chance powered forward to eyeball Big Evs with 100 yards remaining and drew off late to prevail by a length as Regional overtook Big Evs for second in the dying strides.
