    Acklam Express aimed at Glorious Goodwood after Royal Ascot shock

    Acklam Express is now expected to sit out York's John Smith's Cup meeting on July 9, as he bids for Goodwood glory on the Sussex Downs, a track he won at in July 2020. The Mehmas gelding was sent off at 200/1 for the King's Stand Stakes, but stunned everyone by coming in third only a head behind runner-up Twilight Calls.

Australian raider Home Affairs might have been sent off as the favourite, but he run his race by the furlong pole, and the Godolphin duo were followed over the finishing line by a blanket of horses.
