Owen Burrows is doing a fine job of advertising his skills just at the right time as Hukum returned to winning ways in the ABF/BGC Cumberland Lodge Stakes at Ascot.
Burrows has trained largely for Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum since starting out at Kingwood House Stables in Lambourn.
After the leading owner died earlier this year, his equine interests were taken on by his daughter Sheikha Hissa - and it was recently announced that her worldwide Shadwell Estate string is to be slimmed down.
That does allow Burrows to spread his wings, however.
Second in the Cambridgeshire last week with Shadwell's Anmaat, he brought Minzaal back from over a year off to finish second in the Rous Stakes on this card - in the same famous blue-and-white colours.
