The Dubai World Cup (Gr. 1, 2000m) winner Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux)is more likely to contest the Queen Anne Stakes (Gr. 1, 1m) rather than the Price of Wales's Stakes (Gr. 1, 1m2f) at Royal Ascot in June. "Your mile at Ascot is much more grueling than a mile in the States and a mile and a quarter [at Ascot] is like a mile and a half [in the States] and may just be too much," said trainer Graham Motion. "It is a relief that there is no Frankel. The Queen Anne is an interesting option and it is something that I think he can adapt to. That's the remarkable thing about this horse is that he can do a bit of everything."
