Sands Of Mali put in a sensational performance to make all in the Group-1 British Champions Sprint at Ascot on Saturday defeating Europe's best sprinters in devastating fashion. Having been so unlucky when runner-up in the G1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot in June, Richard Fahey's star three year-old repelled mutiple Group-1 winner Harry Angel to win by a length under Paul Hanagan for owners The Cool Silk Partnership.
