Mick Halford is contemplating a trip to Royal Ascot with Invincible Ash after the globetrotting filly arrived back at her Irish base on Sunday.

The smart seven-year-old wintered in Dubai, where she registered a notable victory over compatriot Sole Power in a valuable Meydan conditions race.

She failed to fire on her latest appearance in the Krisflyer International Sprint at Kranji in Singapore, but the trainer is pleased with his star mare's condition after her arrival back in County Kildare.

"She just arrived home from Singapore last night and she seems to have travelled well and she's in good shape," said Halford.

"We'll just see how she is over the next week or so and then make a plan from there, but there are plenty of options for her.

"She could go to Royal Ascot and if she does go there, she'll go for the King's Stand. I think we'll leave Black Caviar to herself in the Diamond Jubilee.

"She won on Derby day at the Curragh last year in the Sapphire Stakes and she could also run in that again, so we'll see."
