Billesdon Bess Loves The Conditions

Thu 03 August 2017

A good day was had at Glorious Goodwood yesterday despite the weather being the worst it has been for years. The rain didn’t stop for a second and turned the ground heavy. BILLESDON BESS looked to love the conditions and gave Hollie Doyle her first winner at the meeting. ‘She gave her a lovely ride and stuck to her guns on the front end. She never looked like getting beat and she won impressively. It’s going to be another tricky day today with the ground the way it is but we have a few chances in the nursery.’

Fridays racing is very limited for the yard with only the one runner at Goodwood. TONY CURTIS takes his chance in the Betfred Mile Handicap. ‘He ran very well last time at Newmarket after a long layoff and loves these big handicaps where there is plenty of speed. He is in great form and apart from not knowing about the ground he should run very well.’
