Fox Chairman builds on Royal Ascot second with Newbury success

Sat 20 Jul 2019

Watch a full replay of how the Kingman colt got back to winning ways in the bet365 Stakes at Newbury plus Tom Stanley's interview with Andrew Balding.

Fox Chairman justified his short price as he got back to winning ways in the bet365 Stakes at Newbury.

The Kingman colt looked a shade unlucky run at Royal Ascot, where he was second to Sangaruius in the Hampton Court Stakes on only his third run, and made amends by taking the Listed race registered as the Steventon Stakes.

Andrew Balding’s three-year-old, owned by King Power Racing, made smooth progress in the centre of the course to cruise into the lead a furlong and a half out in the hands of Silvestre de Sousa.

Though Fox Chairman drifted over to the far rail, the 8-13 favourite was always in command and had a length to spare over the staying-on Pondus at the line.

De Sousa said: “He’s still green and he was going so good I pulled him out to let him stretch and he put the race to bed.

“With the headwind and his greenness, he just didn’t know what to do.

“It’s tacky, hold-up ground. That would not have been in his favour.”
