Godolphin’s MG1SW Harry Angel (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) could yet defend his crown in the G1 July Cup at Newmarket on July 14 after making a swift recovery from the injury he suffered at Royal Ascot in the G1 Diamond Jubilee S. The Clive Cox-trained 4-year-old was favoured during the Royal Ascot sprint, but became upset after being loaded into the stalls and lost all chance after completely missing the break when the gates opened. It later transpired Harry Angel had suffered a leg injury, but Cox is delighted to report that he is now back in full work and is not ruling out the possibility of him lining up on the July Course on Saturday week.

“We have been much happier with him,” Cox told Yahoo Sport UK. “The initial concern was that he had injured a joint, but I am pleased to say that he has responded well to treatment and has been back in normal exercise for the last three days. We are obviously relieved and very happy with the way he has responded.”
