Redkirk Warrior will attempt to become the first Australian-trained sprinter to win at Royal Ascot since Black Caviar when he competes at this year's meeting, which runs from June 19-23.
He is entered in the five-furlong King's Stand Stakes on the opening day and also the six-furlong Diamond Jubilee Stakes on the final day, with the weather to determine which event he contests.
