Royal Ascot-bound sprinter Wandjina undertakes the first leg of his trip to England on Friday night.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained colt will travel from his Randwick stable by road to Melbourne, where he will stay for around a week-and-a-half before flying out.

The Australian Guineas winner will round out his preparations in an 800-metre jumpout at Flemington next Friday morning.

“He’s thriving in his work and he comes to Flemington this evening (Friday),” Waterhouse told’s Racing Ahead on RSN.

“He will have a jumpout next Friday, I will be there to supervise, and then he’s off to Ascot.”

Brazen Beau, who won a 900m Rosehill barrier trial earlier this week, is also scheduled to jump out at Flemington next Friday.

They will depart on the same plane, along with the Robert Smerdon-trained Shamal Wind, the following week.

Brazen Beau and Shamal Wind will both contest the 1000m King’s Stand Stakes on the opening day of the Royal Ascot meeting, 16 June, with Wandjina to run in the 1200m Diamond Jubilee Stakes on the final day (20 June).
