Although he’d been in impressive form this year – riding 50 winners so far in 2018 – Martin Harley had no joy at Royal Ascot.
Harley six mounts during the meeting, with his best a fifth placed finish on Friday.
Riding the 8/1 priced Top Tug for Alan King, Harley couldn’t get close enough to make a big push having challenged the leaders early on.
Earlier on Friday, Harley sixth on Sheikhzayedroad, a 33/1 mount trained by David Simcock.
Harley’s other rides at Ascot were also big prices, including the 20/1 shot Meri Devie for Willie Mullins yesterday.
The Trentagh man has races at Chepstow and Windsor tomorrow.Tags:
