Newbury next junction for Onemorefortheroad after Battle of the Kings

Neil and Alan King squared off on Saturday and Neil King still has high hopes for Onemorefortheroad after finishing second to Tritonic at Ascot. Newbury is next.

Neil King may have come off second best to Alan in the Battle of the Kings at Ascot on Saturday but he's not letting that get in the way of grand plans for Onemorefortheroad.

Trainer Neil King feels the six-year-old showed he would be suited by that ultra-competitive handicap when second in the Betfair Exchange Trophy.

Onemorefortheroad had won his last three starts in the style of a progressive sort and lost little in defeat to Alan King's Tritonic.

King said: "It was a great run. I was really pleased with him. There were no hard luck stories. He was beaten by a better horse on the day, trained by my great mate and neighbour (Alan King).

"He was grand this morning. We'd love to go to the Betfair Hurdle with him. I think that would be ideal for the horse.

"He did everything right. I was pleased how his jumping and everything held up at speed. He was all good this morning."
