RACING: Royaume Bleu stars for Hales
7:00am Tuesday 14th January 2014 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.”
