Alan King hopes Dunkerron can take advantage of a drop in class on his return to action in the Betway King Charles II Stakes at Newmarket.

The Barbury Castle trainer has earmarked the seven-furlong Listed prize on May 18 as a starting point for the gelded son of Kuroshio.

Although failing to strike at pattern-race level in four attempts last season, Dunkerron ran some admirable races in defeat – most notably when chasing home Dark Vision in the Group Two Vintage Stakes at Goodwood in July.

King said: “Dunkerron is working well, and we are looking at starting him in the King Charles II Stakes at Newmarket.

“We had a bit of a hold-up with him coughing for a while, but the last two weeks he has been good.

“From what I have seen this spring, it looks like he has trained on from two to three. We will just take things a race at time.”
