WEDNESDAY 3.40 PRINCE OF WALES’S STAKES
1. Crystal Ocean 2. Elarqam 3. Magical The Hardwicke Stakes should be there for the taking for Crystal Ocean if he bids to repeat last year’s success in that Group 2, but a first Group 1 is surely within reach for the Sir Michael Stoute-trained five-year-old. Like many older horses from the yard he keeps getting better and hopes are high there will be even more to come. Elarqam finally tapped back into his two-year-old potential when winning at Goodwood and could yet be a force at the highest level.
