Saeed Bin Suroor: Big handicap winner

Mickael Barzelona booted home Ahzeemah (11-1) to victory in an incident-packed Ladbrokes Mobile Handicap at Ascot.

The gelding seems to have a liking for Ascot having won at the Berkshire track in June and finished second in a recent handicap over course-and-distance in the Shergar Cup.

As the majority of jockeys appeared intent to stick to the far rail, Mickael Barzelona bucked the trend and kept in the centre of the course and his decision was to be justified as his mount made full use of a clear run.

The winner was eased heavily as Stencive ran on from an improbable position to grab second, with Silver Lime a never-nearer third, and Modernism fourth.

Gospel Choir, who had been seeking a four-timer, was one of a number to suffer in the general bunching and though George Baker had to burrow his way through to secure a run, the 5-1 favourite had no more to give when he finally saw daylight.
