AS discussed in last week’s column, things didn’t exactly go to plan for Charlie Appleby during Royal Ascot, but the champion trainer has bounced back in no uncertain terms with seven winners from 12 runners, including two listed successes at his local track, between June 29th and July 1st.

Despite the fact the stable’s juveniles weren’t represented at the Royal Meeting, Appleby’s two-year-olds have been in blistering form during the early part of the summer with 11 winners from only 25 runners.
