Magnus, third behind Australian compatriot Miss Andretti in last season’s King’s Stand Stakes, has arrived safe and sound in England ahead of another crack at the Royal Ascot sprint.
Trained by Peter Moody, the six-year-old finished a half-length second to old rival Takeover Target in Singapore nearly two weeks ago and is reported to be in good shape as he grows accustomed to temporary surroundings in Newmarket.
Moody said: “He arrived in England and settled in well after getting in late on Sunday night.
“It has been a little bit of a weather shock for him as he went from the cold of Melbourne to the hot, climatic, humid conditions of Singapore, and now he’s back to more chilly weather.
“His lass said it’s beginning to pick up though and we’ve been happy with him as he’s travelled well.
“We’ve checked his blood out and it’s very good. It indicated just a slight level of stress from all the travelling but there’s no sign of infection or travel sickness, which is great when you travel that far.
“He was straight onto his food and water too and that’s even more important.
“We’ve been happy with him and think he’ll run a big race again at Ascot.”
