Chartwell Stakes: Sacred sails to silky smooth victory at Lingfield

  • Sacred upheld her fine record fresh to oblige favourite-backers in style and lead home a William Haggas one-three in Lingfield's Fitzdares Chartwell Fillies' Stakes. The five-year-old was the undoubted class act of the line-up and was anchored in rear alongside Haggas-trained stablemate Queen Aminatu in the early stages, as Richard Hughes' Candle Of Hope was away well from a wide draw and led from Nell Gwyn third Secret Angel. Rounding the final bend Ryan Moore and the 13-8 market leader still had plenty of traffic ahead of them, but soon began to chart their path to the winning line.
