Norfolk Stakes result: Reckless powers to glory

Reckless Abandoned took the Norfolk Stakes despite hanging badly right

Reckless Abandon overcame clear signs of inexperience to record his second victory from as many starts in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot...

It is testament to his ability that he still managed to win, passing the post with three-quarters of a length in hand...

Clive Cox's Doncaster winner was smartly away in the five-furlong Group 2 and quickened up to take the lead heading towards the furlong marker.

It looked as though the 4-1 shot would throw away his chance as he hung violently left in the hands of Adam Kirby, coming right across to the stands side rail.

But it is testament to his ability that he still managed to win, passing the post with three-quarters of a length in hand.

Gale Force Ten filled the runner-up spot, racing on the other side of the course, with Ian's Dream third.
