Thrilled' Clive Cox targeting Haydock and Ascot with sprint king Harry Angel

 Jul 17 2017

The Lambourn trainer is targeting the 32Red Sprint Cup at Haydock in September and the Qipco British Champions Sprint at Ascot in October, following his triumph from last year's winner Limato in what looked a vintage renewal of the all-aged six-furlong championship.

In doing so, Harry Angel turned the tables on his Commonwealth Cup conqueror, the Aidan O'Brien-trained Caravaggio, who was a never-nearer fourth.

"I was really thrilled. It was a performance to be proud of and he's come out of the race well. He's fine," said Cox.

"Everyone was there - it was a very well contested July Cup. I think it will be Haydock next. I'd say that would be the one and the Champions Day Sprint, hopefully.

"He's very versatile from a ground point of view."
