By Andrew Atkinson

Aidan O’Brien trained Battleground (11-4) – headline tip – landed the 7 furlongs Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot on Thursday, ridden by Ryan Moore, when beating March Law by 2 1/2 lengths. Seattle Rock (80-1) was third.

Battleground, who made a debut run at Naas, Ireland, last week, was too good for runner-up, Mark Johnston trained March Law (18-1), ridden by Silvestre de Sousa.

“He’s a lovely specimen – a very exciting horse. He’s learned a lot from Naas. We were worried about the rain (going soft),” said O’Brien.

Looking ahead, Ballydoyle maestro O’Brien said: “He could be one for the July meeting, or National Stakes. A mile looks like being his trip, as this stage.”
