Sands Of Mali is being prepared to repeat last year’s victory in the QIPCO British Champions Sprint Stakes at Ascot
Trainer Richard Fahey reported the four-year-old to have recovered from the soreness he suffered when well beaten in the King’s Stand Stakes in June.
The Musley Bank handler is confident his top-class sprinter can put that setback behind him on QIPCO British Champions Day.
“He came back from Ascot a bit sore, but he’s grand now and back full in training,” said Fahey. “The race at Ascot will be his target. I’m sure he’ll come back.”
