Wolverhampton Tips: Hakam
Third fastest closer in the Portland despite still being a maiden on turf. Is 4/11 on the AW.
Three weeks ago I took a punt on Hakam at a big price in the Portland handicap. It’s didn’t payoff but the investment was worthwhile from a learning point of view because the race set him up perfectly for a return to Wolverhampton.
Hakam finished a respectable 10/22 and it was perhaps asking too much for him to break his duck on turf in such a competitive race. However, he ran well under the circumstances and after a slow start he rattled home with the third fastest closing sectional.
