Hawwaam looked every inch the superstar when he demolished the Grade 2 Premier Trophy field at Kenilworth
Takers of the 7-20 had no anxious moments, as the Silvano colt displayed an impressive change of pace to surge clear from the 400 and score by a comfortable two and a quarter.
Bunker Hunt also finished well to comfortably defeat Twist Of Fate, and may now be ready to fulfil his early potential.
Twist Of Fate had set a reasonable gallop, followed by Capoeira and Tap O’Noth, while Hawwaam was always poised to strike, which he did in deadly fashion.
Hawwaam remained calm pre race, despite a delay loading after Bunker Hunt needed his bridle refitted.
“I’m always nervous when I ride him ” admitted Anton Marcus.
“The way he behaved today was really good. He didn’t have the ideal prep for this, but the good ones get over it” commented Mathew de Kock.
The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate is going to be some race.
