Charlie Appleby boasts one in this Epsom contest on Friday with Hurricane Lane. The five-year-old has been lightly raced since winning five times in 2021, including Group Two Dante Stakes at York, Irish Derby at Curragh and the Group One St Leger at Doncaster. Returned below-par in 2022, failing to win on the two runs that year before finishing last of seven on reappearance this term at Newbury in April.
The Frankel horse was back to the Hurricane Lane we saw in 2021, winning Group Two Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket last month by six lengths and there is no reason that there can’t be another big run here. William Buick is the jockey.
