Closing third for Al Suhail in G2 Summer Mile
Al Suhail bounced back to form on his European return with a staying-on third in the G2 Summer Mile at Ascot, UK, on Saturday, 10 July.
The four-year-old filled the same position on his first start of the year for Charlie Appleby in the G1 Jebel Hatta Sponsored By Emirates Airline on Super Saturday before failing to beat a rival in the G1 Dubai Turf on Dubai World Cup Night.
After breaking half a stride slow under Pat Dobbs, Al Suhail tracked Century Dream and Tilsit as the trio raced on the outside away from the rest of the field.
The son of Dubawi found himself sixth overall when the nine runners converged turning in and made good headway in the final furlong, getting up for third near the line to go down by a length and three-quarters in total.
