Franking the form of the Listed Lingfield Derby Trial, Ballydoyle’s Illinois (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}–Danedrop {Ire}, by Danehill) relished the extra trip of Wednesday’s G2 Queen’s Vase to bring up Royal Ascot win number 80 for Ryan Moore. Always content on the front end, Ballydoyle’s 7-4 favourite veered left in the straight when in command but found the line 1 1/4 lengths ahead of stablemate Highbury (Fr) (Galileo {Ire}), with compatriot Birdman (Ire) (Free Eagle {Ire}) 3/4 of a length away in third.
