THERE will be an opportunity to mix business and pleasure in London on Monday evening when the Goffs London Sale returns to Kensington Palace Gardens.

One of the summer’s most enjoyable social occasions, the sale contains 25 confirmed lots and a significant number of them hold Royal Ascot engagements.

A particularly fascinating entry is Hoo Ya Mal, who finished second in the Derby just last Saturday for trainer Andrew Balding. The Henry de Bromhead-trained Star Girls Aalmal also brings classic form to the table in the shape of her fourth place finish in the Irish 1000 Guineas.

Michael O’Callaghan has entered a couple of very promising two-year-olds, including late entry Crypo Force who is among the favourites for next Saturday’s Chesham Stakes.

Another lot sure to attract a lot of attention is the Jessica Harrington-trained Cadillac, recent winner of a Leopardstown listed race in good style.
