Rocks ready to roll in Coronation

Red Rocks is set to give Getaway a little competition in Friday’s Juddmonte Coronation Cup at Epsom.

Brian Meehan’s five-year-old is a regular in Group One races around the world, having both won and finished third in the Breeders’ Cup Turf.

The Galileo entire did not keep such lofty company on his seasonal bow in a conditions event at Lingfield but won much more easily than the official margin of half a length suggests.

Jamie McCalmont, racing manager to his owner Paul Reddam, said: “It is more than likely he’ll run in the Coronation Cup. It’s all going well and we’re looking forward to it.”

The mile and a half Group One is likely to be another small field but is not short on quality with Andre Fabre’s Getaway, a most impressive winner at Newmarket last time, expected to start favourite.
