RACING: Royaume Bleu stars for Hales

First published in Sport

Royaume Bleu (8-1) gave Alex Hales’s Edgcote stables, near Banbury, a welcome winner at Plumpton yesterday.

Killian Moore had the eight-year-old to the fore in the handicap chase over three miles and two furlongs, and he stayed on powerfully to beat Flugzeug by 16 lengths.

Hales said: “He likes Towcester, but I thought I’d change things up a bit and try a tighter track.

“He makes it hard for himself and doesn’t put it all in, but it’s great to see him win.”
