LONDON // Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, has bought Royal Ascot winner Jealous Again, according to one of His Highness's advisers. "Sheikh Mohammed has purchased Jealous Again and she will be returning to Europe," Sheikh Mohammed's bloodstock adviser, John Ferguson, said today. Formerly trained by the American handler Wesley Ward, the filly turned in a hugely impressive display in the Queen Mary Stakes last month, bursting out of the stalls and showing far too much speed for the opposition to finish five lengths clear.

Asked whether the filly would be joining the world-renowned Godolphin stable, owned by Sheikh Mohammed, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ferguson said: "Nothing has been decided, and we are in the process of sorting things out." *With Agencies
