Snow Ploughs Opposition at Hardwicke

Snow Sky put in a career-best performance to win the Hardwicke Stakes and now more top quality races could be on the agenda.


William Hill quote Snow Sky at 10-1 for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe after he trounced the Hardwicke opposition under a front-running ride from Pat Smullen.


William Hill also think Sir Michael Stoute could consider the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes as an option and make Snow Sky 5-2 favourite for that contest. He would need to be supplemented for the race.


Meanwhile, Telescope, who was well beaten in the Hardwicke Stakes has been pushed out from 9-4 favourite for the King George to 6-1.
