THE LIR JET (IRE) (Prince Of Lir x Paper Dreams), in the colours of Qatar Racing Limited, stayed unbeaten landing the Norfolk Stakes (Gr2) on Friday at Royal Ascot.
The bay colt was ridden to his second straight victory by Oisin Murphy, following an impressive win on debut earlier this month. The precocious colt was the only capable runner in the five-furlong race for two-year-olds following GOLDEN PAL in the closing stages.
The pace was very strong throughout and THE LIR JET came to snatch victory by a neck in the final strides. The Ranlo Investments LLC-owned and Wesley A Ward-trained GOLDEN PAL (USA) (Uncle Mo x Lady Shipman) was the runner-up under Andrea Atzeni. The M A R Blencowe-owned and Andrew Balding-trained IMPERIAL FORCE (IRE) (Camacho x Cafetiere) was further three and a quarter lengths behind in third under James Doyle.
