O'Brien hoping to cast Ascot spell

Bewitched

Charles O'Brien can find no reason not to let Bewitched take her chance in the Golden Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot a week on Saturday.

The daughter of Dansili proved she was a sprinter of high calibre by winning the Renaissance Stakes at the Curragh and then travelling over to Ascot to take the Bengough Stakes last October. She also made a successful reappearance this season in the Ballycorus Stakes at Leopardstown just over a week ago.

"I think she's definitely going to the Golden Jubilee," said O'Brien.

"Her form fits in well with taking her chance in a race like that - I went through the other entries and couldn't find anything to put me off running her."
