El Hayem, already a winner at three years had run well twice as a 4YO in class two handicaps. As Sandown, rated as good to firm, he was back on the ground he loves and duly obliged for trainer Sir Michael Stoute and jockey Ryan Moore. Lightly raced his next race is likely to be the Betfred Mile at the Qatar Goodwood festival.

Like many Invincible Spirit’s, who improve with age, he is likely to remain in training and will be a force in all the good one mile handicaps.
