14th Jul 2017 2nd 10/1 – Hakam – Mick Appleby Ascot

Only just failed to get up, but each-way money still landed at 10/1. Original quote: “Hakam – Has been a bit in-and-out of late, but returned to form last time over in Sweden when running 4th of 11 in a decent race. Has had a few months off to get over that but seems well and has gone well fresh in the past. Competitive race and we’ve top-weight here, but Silvestre a plus in saddle and any rain will be fine. Each-way chance.”
