Contributer has been sold privately following his victory in the Wolferton Handicap at Royal Ascot.

The four-year-old colt is now under Sheikh Mohammed's Darley banner, after catching their eye with his Listed victory in owner George Bolton's colours when in the care of trainer Ed Dunlop.

A son of High Chaparral, he had finished fourth to Hillstar in the King Edward VII at the meeting 12 months previously.

"He's been sold privately to Sheikh Mohammed and Darley. I don't know where he's going," said Dunlop.
