“He’s due to start cantering in a week’s time and hopefully he’s still on schedule for the Melbourne Cup. We couldn’t be happier and so far, so good.”

While Jakkalberry won’t be competing, ATB will still be represented at this week’s Royal Ascot carnival, with recent acquisition Dandino to contest the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes (2400m) on Saturday.

“I hope the ground won’t change a lot. Ideally, good to firm is what we want.

“It’s at his best trip, a mile and a half (2400m), and I think he’s definitely a live chance.”

Under former trainer James Fanshaw the six-year-old won last year’s Group 3 September Stakes.
