Hargam holds Court at Kempton
Hargam shone in the absence of stablemate My Tent Or Yours when claiming Listed success on his seasonal return at Kempton.
Barry Geraghty and JP McManus won with Hargam at Kempton
Nicky Henderson took out My Tent Or Yours just after the first race had finished on account of the ground, described as 'Good' by officials following what has been a dry start to the autumn.
Such conditions hold no fears for Hargam, though, who knuckled down well after the final flight to reel in Court Minstrel, a commendable second following a shuddering early mistake, and win by a neck.
The well-fancied Gwafa was held up and never landed a blow, while the challenge of Dan Skelton's Mister Miyagi petered out after he had made much of the running.
