2.50 Deauville – Al Hakeem – generally 13/8 – (WON)

Quite surprised to see Royal Ascot winner, Missed The Cut just ahead of Al Hakeem in the market here, albeit the former was impressive at Ascot, but that was in handicap company off a mark of 95. Al Hakeem however bolted up in a listed event in May before running very well when a staying on 4th in the French Derby, where having been drawn wide he was always up against it. He finished as well as anything, bar the exceptional winner and can land this prize.
