Aidan O’Brien plans to run a select team of juveniles at Royal Ascot next week, according to the Irish Independent. The Ballydoyle trainer is looking for his ninth win in the Group Two Coventry Stakes, and he looks likely to rely on three-length maiden winner Murillo (Scat Daddy) and $2.6-million foal Declarationofpeace.

On the distaff side, Clemmie (Galileo), a full-sister to dual Guineas winner Churchill (Ire) and September (Deep Impact), a daughter of Classic winner Peeping Fawn could run in the G3 Albany Stakes and the Listed Chesham Stakes.

“We are looking at Murillo and Declarationofpeace going in the Coventry Stakes,” O’Brien told the Irish Independent. “We may have Sioux Nation (Scat Daddy) in the Windsor Castle or Norfolk and the ground got very soft at The Curragh last time. It’s not certain we will have a runner in the Queen Mary. Clemmie and September are possibles for the Albany and Chesham.”
