Ward pleased with Lady Aurelia

Lady Aurelia

Wesley Ward was delighted with Lady Aurelia as the filly was one of several of her trainer's Royal Ascot contenders to work at Keeneland racecourse on Tuesday morning.

Last season's startling Queen Mary Stakes heroine was put through her paces over five furlongs alongside stablemate Bound For Nowhere.

Lady Aurelia is set to compete in the King's Stand Stakes at the Royal meeting, while Bound For Nowhere has been earmarked for the Commonwealth Cup.

"She had a great work," Ward said of the former.

"We put her in front, like she usually does in her races, and she just kind of cruised around there."

Ward said Lady Aurelia will have an "easy breeze" at Keeneland next Monday before she departs for England a day later.

Undrafted also worked at Keeneland on Tuesday morning and is set to make a third appearance at Royal Ascot.

The seven-year-old chestnut won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes two years ago and finished sixth in the same race last season. He is under consideration for the Wokingham Stakes at the big meeting in June.

Fairyland and McErin worked in tandem at Keeneland, with the former pencilled in for the Albany Stakes. McErin is set to take his chance in the Norfolk Stakes.

Happy Like A Fool (Queen Mary Stakes) and Nootka Sound (Windsor Castle) also enjoyed a half-mile workout.
