Khaadem wins the Stewards’ Cup Image supplied by Goodwood Racecourse

Charlie Hills has reported Khaadem returned from Haydock with a sore foot after disappointing in the Betfair Sprint Cup.

Khaadem had dominated in the Unibet Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood, but stepping back up to Group One level, he faded quickly to finish last of the eleven runners at Haydock.

Hills said: “Before the race he had a bit of a bruised foot, but that came right and he was completely sound. I don’t know whether the soft ground didn’t suit him, but he’s come back and he’s sore in that foot again.”
