HORSE RACING - Ghaiyyath wins Coronation Cup

Posted on

Favourite Ghaiyyath won the first Group 1 contest of the UK flat racing season at Newmarket in fine style.

William Buick's mount led the mile-and-a-half contest from start to finish, with 2019 Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck closing at the finish but not good enough to catch the Charlie Appleby trained five-year-old.

The race was transferred from its usual venue, Epsom Downs, due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
