Sir Prancealot Sandown 31.5.12 Even more impressive was the fact the son of Tamayuz had to overcome trouble in running under Richard Hughes but still picked up the leaders with the minimum of fuss before careering away for an easy victory.

The win was trainer Richard Hannon‘s fourth in the race in the last six years, but his first since completing a hat-trick in the Listed contest with Monsieur Chevalier in 2009.

Assistant trainer Richard Hannon jnr said: “He’s settled down since his debut win at Bath and put on weight. Hughesie loved him and he looked pretty special.”

Regarding his Royal Ascot target, Hannon added: “He looks like he would get 6f in the Coventry or alternatively we could stick at 5f for the Norfolk but we don’t have to make our mind up yet.

“He’s as good as we’ve seen from our yard so far this season.”

The race was fast and furious from the off with stablemates Storm Moon and Baileys Jubilee making it a true test from the gates but Sir Prancealot looked in a different league as he cruised past the leaders a furlong out.

Running on from the rear to fill the places were Top Boy and Effie B, the latter looking tailor-made for 6f after struggling though the early stages.
