A perfect performance by James's Delight at York

James's Delight, ridden by Ryan Moore and trained by Clive Cox, delivered a dominant performance to win the Churchill Tyres Supporting Macmillan Sprint Handicap over six furlongs at York. After dropping in behind the early leaders, Moore asked his mount to accelerate at the furlong pole and James's Delight responded immediately, pulling away to win by two and a quarter lengths.

This victory marked the third handicap win of the season for the three-year-old Invincible Army gelding, who has struggled in Group Three and Listed races. Rooneys were thrilled with the performance, with Cox praising Moore for his confident ride.

Cox is considering a run in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot for James's Delight but will assess the horse's condition before making a decision. Despite the potential penalty for this win, Cox is excited about the horse's future and believes he is a promising three-year-old.

Moore noted that James's Delight is improving and benefited from a strongly-run race at York. Both trainer and jockey are optimistic about the horse's future and potential success at Ascot.
