The Richard Hannon-trained Voyage will bid to atone for an unfortunate incident in the Derby when he runs here.

The colt had won his only race prior to Epsom and was about to fulfil a lifelong dream for owner Julie Wood.

However, as soon as the stalls opened he ducked, giving Pat Dobbs no chance of keeping the partnership intact.

“Unfortunately, things didn’t go to plan for Voyage in the Derby after he stumbled coming out of the stalls and unseated Dobbsy, who had no chance whatsoever,” Hannon told his Unibet blog.

“I had plenty of texts after the race congratulating me on training the first past the post in the Derby, but unfortunately there’s no prize money for ‘winning’ without the jockey!

“It was a bitter disappointment for everyone, not least Julie Wood who has always wanted a Derby runner, but the horse is absolutely fine, and is definitely heading to Ascot for the King Edward VII Stakes.”

Wathnan Racing has acquired Space Legend to run in the distinctive peacock blue and gold colors of the Emir of Qatar’s racing operation.

These acquisition complements horses like Gregory, who secured victory in the Queen’s Vase last year and is now aiming for the Gold Cup in the absence of his Wathnan-owned stablemate, Courage Mon Ami.

Space Legend, a son of  Sea The Stars, impressed as an easy maiden winner at Leicester earlier this season. Unfortunately, he encountered a luckless run when finishing a neck second in the Cocked Hat at Goodwood. In addition to his Royal Ascot engagement, the lightly-raced colt also holds an entry in the prestigious King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Richard Brown, racing adviser to Wathnan Racing, expressed optimism about Space Legend’s potential: ‘He is a lovely progressive type, typical of the best offspring from his sire. We eagerly anticipate his development in the coming months and seasons.’
